Assemblymember Brown’s Statement on California’s Bid for Boeing 777X
Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) issued the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s plan to submit a proposal to Boeing on Tuesday night:
“I am pleased to learn that Governor Brown has confirmed California’s participation in the bidding process for Boeing’s new 777X project. His decision comes at a critical time when the unemployment rate in our state, and especially in the 47th Assembly District, remains one of the highest in the nation. The Boeing project has the potential to create thousands of good paying jobs and promote economic vitality throughout our state.
As chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Small Business Financing and Development Opportunities, it’s been my goal to introduce legislation and support policies that will help create jobs and stimulate economic growth. And in keeping with my goal, I fully support our governor’s decision to compete for this project, and I look forward to the outcome of Boeing’s decision.”
Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, the southwest parts of San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.
