Shoulda closed the Sacramento, LA & San Francisco offices too.
Brown is an, er, interesting character. He’s utterly liberal, but very unconventional.
I think he’ll surprise and infuriate a lot of people on both sides of the aisle during his term. Should be interesting to watch. Especially from a different state. :)
He’s afraid of that Jim Thompson fella.
Gotta give him credit for starting to cut.
Did you Californians give him the freedom to "work from home" ?
Yes, but what question did he axe the Fresno office?
This is just fine. He’s downsizing. Good.
Of course, Agriculture is still the state’s top industry, and this leaves the precious Central Valley with no direct office in its midst. But that’s okay, there’s not one where I live either, and I wouldn’t want to pay for one.
I hope he keeps cutting and cutting and cutting. Just as only Nixon could go to China, let’s hope that only Moonbeam can cut California’s kudzu-vine of a bureaucracy down to size. Brown was actually an okay mayor, so maybe he’s grown up. We’re stuck with him for four years, might as well try to be hopeful.
Like using a bucket to bail out the Titanic
Why does a governor need “field offices” anyway?
You are right;only a moonbat liberal will be taken seriously when he tells the other moonbats “we have to cut spending”;the moonbats just can’t entertain the thought a conservative or even moderate might be correct.
Yes, especially from a different state! We spent almost 10 years in that hell hole when I was in the Navy. I actually had to beg my detailer to transfer me out. Ended up in Corpus Christi, TX and never looked back. A year later Orange County went bankrupt. CA doesn't have a chance in the world! Surprised it lasted this long. Sell it to China already!
He eliminated the “Office of the First Lady.”
Maria is saddened.
Not that surprising: during his first term he slept on the floor in an apartment for a time (disdaining the governor’s mansion) and dated Linda Ronstad.
Are You Sure?California's GDP was $1.8 TRILLION which is more than New York and Texas combined. China's GDP is only twice as much. Calif is one of the few states that pays more in Federal taxes than it receives in benefits etc...
This guy has changed. He is cutting waste which I don’t believe he would have done last time. We should give him credit for trying. I suppose since he is a democrat we should not give him credit, but being that he is cutting it should be acknowledged. Good for Brown.
The Governor of Florida also used a small pail for the flooding in Florida’s financial mess. However he was totally praised for it. I wonder what the difference is????
OhooooK. . . but what happens when the state ultimately defaults on its loans? And it will; along with Illinois, New York and probably New Jersey! Then what? I know! The rest of us who live in those unenlightened states will have the 'right' to bail you out, won't we?
Here's a clue, MOVE!
