CALIFORNIA LEGISLATOR WANTS LATINOS TO MEET IN FALL

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 03, 2008 ) Long Beach, California – The Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosted California State Assemblyman Warren T. Furutani during their first membership luncheon June 20, 2008. Furutani, D-Long Beach, was elected in a special election in February of 2008 and is the newest legislator in Sacramento. Although his background is in education, having been with UCLA and on the Los Angeles Board of Education, Furutani has been assigned to the Assembly’s Utilities and Commerce Committee.

In addressing the large group of business owners in attendance at the Long Beach Petroleum Club, Furutani discussed how the diversity in California is causing change throughout the United States.

“This is a huge monumental change of the paradigm of our country,” said Furutani. “We should not only understand the past and the changes that impact the present, but these changes will undoubtedly have an impact on our future. That is why I feel proud to speak before the Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.”

Furutani’s district is comprised of a diverse constituency, including Latinos, African Americans and Asian.

“From the beginning of our establishments in this country, I think we have always been involved in business,” Furutani told the group. “That is why we need to make sure our presence is there when they hand out contracts.”

California is the first state in the nation without a majority with Whites comprising less than 50 percent of the total population while Hispanics and Asians represent 36 percent and 12 percent respectively. African Americans represent 6 percent of the State’s total population.

In referencing the need to have the different Chambers of Commerce become more active in the development of legislation, Furutani suggested that businesses and Chambers meet with him in the fall, where they can work together proactively. He recommended businesses not wait till the spring when all they can do is be on the defensive and seek to kill bills, but to develop legislative agendas and work with him in the fall so the Chambers can take a stronger advocate role.

“What we have to do on the public policy secor is make sure that doors remain open and those that are closed are opened,” Furutani concluded. “And, we open further those that we need so we can compete. And, once the door is open, it’s up to you to get through it.”

The entire presentation can be viewed on www.calmagazine.com, Channel 1.
