Assemblyman Wood Responds to “State of the State”

For immediate release:

Today Governor Jerry Brown Addressed Californian’s from the Capitol in his record 14th State of the State Address this morning. In response to the Governor’s address, North Coast Assemblyman Jim Wood had this to say.

“The Governor is, right we have come a long way, but there is still a lot to do.

We are experiencing a healthcare crisis in our rural communities.  In most small towns across California residents have to drive hours in each direction to get the medical attention they need.  We must develop a strategy to convince more healthcare providers to set up shop and stay in our small towns.

Additionally I appreciate the Governor’s attention to climate change; we must do all we can to ensure a safe and healthy planet for future generations.  Unfortunately, we are ignoring one of our greatest assets to achieve that goal.  Our state parks are in disarray.  State Parks showcase the very best of California’s natural resources.  They serve as inspiration to current and future generations and play an important role in the health of our ecosystems.  The cost of maintaining them pales in comparison to the benefits they deliver.  We must commit to investing in our State Parks.”
