It’s now 2019 and it’s time to get back to the grind. We are not out of the holiday glow when City of Davis Officer Natalie Corona was gunned down on January 10th. Unfortunately, it will not stop here. Officer Down Memorial Page put law enforcement deaths at 148 for 2018. Be vigilant, always!
As we know, we have a new governor in California. With the new governor comes a super majority in the state legislation. The U.S. House of Representatives is now held by the Democratic Party. Common thought is the Democrats help organized labor. Hopefully, that will be true.
Our Board of Supervisors sworn in two new supervisors, Supervisor Desmond and Fletcher. We will be reaching out to both of them for common ground. As far as we can tell, political season never ends and we are gearing up for the next election cycle.
Finally, we congratulate Jorge Duran and his appointment as the new Chief Investigator of the Bureau of Investigations. VP Nava and I have had our initial talk with him and look forward to many more.
