(RIVERSIDE, CA) –Local families and community members will visit Assemblymember Brian Nestande’s office Tuesday, asking him to stand with the large and diverse constituency of Inland Empire families, teachers, parents, students, seniors, business owners and others who support Gov. Brown’s balanced approach to solving the state budget.

The group will call on Asm. Nestande to vote to maintain existing revenues in order to avoid more cuts to schools, seniors and critical local services including public safety.

If existing revenues are not maintained – the approach some Inland Empire legislators prefer — $9.6 billion more in state budget cuts would pull the rug out from under vulnerable seniors, slash funding for law enforcement even as crime is rising, and chop up to a month off our kids’ school year.

WHO: Dozens of Asm. Nestande’s constituents

WHAT: Visit Nestande’s office to call on him to join them in supporting Governor Brown’s balanced approach to the state budget. Available for media interviews following visit.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 17 @ 3:30 pm

WHERE: Assemblymember Nestande’s Riverside Office

1223 University Ave, Suite 230
Riverside, CA 92507

These Inland Empire families are among the teachers, parents, students, seniors and business owners who have put aside their differences to support Governor Brown’s balanced approach to closing the state’s budget gap and move California’s economic recovery forward. The governor’s plan includes cuts he has already signed into law and a proposal to maintaining existing revenues which has been held up by partisan gridlock.
