Serving the 65th District
A Message from Assemblyman Paul Cook to the People of the 65th Assembly District
As I begin my third and final term in the state Assembly, I would like you all to know that I am humbled and deeply honored by your continued support and pledge to continue fighting for you in Sacramento.
This will likely be my most difficult term as your Assemblyman, as the state of California continues to face a massive budget deficit and a stalled economy that has left far too many Californians out of work. There will be much work to do and I will need all of the residents of the 65th Assembly District to remain vigilant and never hesitate to contact my office with any suggestions or advice.
I will continue to need your input and support so that I can do my best to serve you as your representative in the State Assembly!
Assemblyman Cook to Hold Legislative Summits with Local Leaders
Assemblyman Paul Cook plans to hold a series of legislative summits with local leaders in the coming months. He will be seeking their input on state and local issues as well as discussing legislative priorities for the coming year. “As a former mayor, I’ve always made it a point to work closely with local officials who know their communities best,” Cook explained.
Assemblyman Cook has already set up his first legislative summit with law enforcement leaders from throughout the 65th Assembly District. Future plans include meetings with City Managers, School Superintendents, and Chamber of Commerce Executive Directors.
“Many of my most important pieces of legislation came out of meeting with local officials,” said Cook. “Hopefully, some valuable legislation will emerge from these summits.”
