SACRAMENTO – On January 24, 2017, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President and California Fraternal Oder of Police 2nd Vice President Alan Barcelona attend Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State address at the State Capitol.
Following the State of the State address, former U.S. Representative Xavier Becerra was sworn in as California’s new attorney general. The swearing-in ceremony was followed by a reception hosted by the Governor and First Lady Anne Gust Brown.
“It was a pleasure visiting with Governor Brown and meeting with Attorney General Xavier Becerra,” said Barcelona. “I look forward to my future meetings with the new AG, and our continued work with Governor Brown.”
Later in the day, President Barcelona also had the opportunity to see Assemblymember Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima). Assemblymember Bocanegra was just recently appointed to four legislative committees including transportation, housing and community development, revenue and taxation, and appropriations.
"It is so very important to foster a good rapport and working relationship with California's legislative leaders," said Barcelona. "These are the people who make decisions that impact our lives, our families, our careers and our futures. CSLEA will continue to build its solid strength at the State Capitol in an effort to best serve our valued members."
