Frazier and other area Democrats praise Brown’s budget plan

FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Jim Frazier and other Democratic state lawmakers who represent Solano County praised Gov. Jerry Brown’s $155 billion budget plan Thursday, while Frazier added that transportation funds should be spent on restoring existing projects rather than focus on high-speed rail.

“While this budget proposal is a great starting point, we still have a lot of work to do on the transportation front,” Frazier, D-Oakley, said in a press release. “Funding shovel-ready projects would significantly improve safety and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on our roads and highways, while creating job opportunities for many Californians.”

The state assemblyman, who represents the 11th district that includes most of Solano County, also said he’ll continue to advocate restoring funding after devastating cuts to courts, public safety and the special needs population in California.

Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, who represents the 4th Assembly District that includes part of Solano County, praised “the continued restraint and responsibility reflected in Gov. Brown’s budget proposals.”

“Attention to our state hospitals and developmental centers, along with additional resources to strengthen protections for some of our state’s most vulnerable residents, is also encouraging, she said in a press release.

State Senator Lois Wolk, D-Davis, who represents the 3rd district that includes Solano County, said, “This is a budget for a recovering economy.”

“The governor’s budget pays off more than $11 billion in debt and builds the state’s reserve while reinvesting in public schools and the courts, both of which have experienced significant budget cuts in recent years,” she said in a press release. “This budget strengthens the safety net for the state’s neediest and most vulnerable residents, with proposals including a three-year pilot child-care program for low-income parents seeking employment.”

    Why increase spending by BILLIONS OF DOLLARS? Why increase taxes and/or increase debt upon the taxpayers of California? Seems like the people would be ready for a break from tyranny.

    Once again this guy Frazier pops up, you never hear about him, kinda like our other guy in Oak Grove Both places have no relationship with Solano or the cities there Can't we get our own representation Davis isn't far but there is the danger of accidents when driving Maybe an independent county of Solano with people elected that live here, (not Spering or the good old boys) but new blood, someone that's not going to profit from being elected

    The people of Solano don't have a real good track record in voting responsibly; i.e., Spering and the good old boys.

  • A SHOUT OUT TO ALL OUR AREA REPRESENTATIVESJanuary 10, 2014 - 8:56 am

    Please please act with the utmost of fiscal restraint...Please read the books...Web of Debt by Ellen Brown.....The Public Bank Solution by Ellen Brown ( a really important concept here, please read the book ) and No More National Debt by Bill Still........please do not go on Joy Rides Spending money we do not have.....This also needs to be examined very carefully...I do not think that Fracking in California is necessarily safe for the environment...please check this out....also realize that there are limits to growth...If we can not supply enough water to Southern California, then maybe we should not try...why encourage more unsupportable growth there?
