Partnership Hosts Policy Briefing for 57th Assembly District Candidate
IRWINDALE - This week the Partnership hosted a special policy briefing for Lisa Calderon, a candidate to fill the open 57th State Assembly Seat. The 57th District covers the southern portion of the San Gabriel Valley, including Hacienda Heights, City of Industry, South El Monte and La Puente. The Partnership traditionally meets with candidates for open legislative seats in the San Gabriel Valley in order to introduce them to the organization and its activities.
"The Partnership routinely meets with candidates for higher office here in the San Gabriel Valley," said Partnership President and CEO Bill Manis. "This is an opportunity for us to connect, to plainly present our political priorities and top issues for the region, and look for opportunities to build a working relationship with them should they be elected."
The policy briefing included an overview of the Partnership and its long history in the San Gabriel Valley, with an in-depth presentation of our program areas: marketing the region, education and workforce development, businesses assistance, and political advocacy. The briefing included a special focus on transportation and freight movement issues in the region, a discussion of the future of mass transit, and an important conversation about the rapidly changing landscape of labor and employment law in California.
