The week of February 22 is going to be a busy one for CSAC and for several County Supervisors who will be in Sacramento to testify at the Capitol about three of our priority issues. CSAC staff participates in hearings and offers testimony almost on a daily basis during the legislative session, but having elected Supervisors participate really makes a difference.
“CSAC staff members are all well-respected, subject-matter experts in their policy areas,” said CSAC’s Legislative Director DeAnn Baker. “But having a county supervisor speak from the heart about something that impacts their communities and constituents helps make the issue more real and immediate. Many State Senators and Assembly members were local elected officials before being elected to the Legislature so they share that perspective with our members.”
