Rep. Loretta Sanchez to Join Community Leaders, Workers to Rally for High-Speed Rail, Good Jobs
Event to Highlight Stark Contrasts Between Brown/Whitman on Jobs
Anaheim, CA â€“ Local workers will join community leaders and elected officials, including Rep. Loretta Sanchez, to rally on Tuesday, October 12th in Anaheim for Jerry Brownâ€™s plan to build high-speed rail in California and against Meg Whitmanâ€™s proposal to kill a half million permanent new jobs statewide with her opposition to voter-approved high-speed rail.Â
The â€œGood Jobs Expressâ€ statewide tour will highlight the need for high-speed rail to spark economic recovery, and the stark contrasts between gubernatorial candidates Brown and Whitman on job creation and rebuilding our infrastructure.
The rally in Anaheim is the launch of a statewide tour along the high-speed rail route from Anaheim to Sacramento. Two unemployed ironworkers will travel the entire route, culminating in Sacramento where they will attempt to confront Whitman at a high-dollar fundraiser in Sacramento to ask her in person why she would oppose a project that could put them â€“ and hundreds of thousands of others â€“ back to work.
