The following information is from Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla:

Dear Friends,

Here we are in April already and the legislative session is kicking into high gear. With assembly bills being referred to policy committees, I encourage you to keep up to date with the current status of my bills. One bill that I would like to highlight is AB 2319, which establishes the Innovation, Training, and Common Core Implementation Fund.  Last year, I was able to secure $1.25 billion in one-time funding for school districts to begin the transition to Common Core State Standards. However, more funding is needed to ensure a successful transition to Common Core and the Smarter Balanced Assessment. My bill would authorize school districts to use the funding in any of the following areas: professional development, update education technology,  upgrade local infrastructure to increase internet bandwidth, support the implementation of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs, support career technical education, and provide instructional materials.

In addition to the legislation I am working on, I would like to remind you of two special 14th Assembly District events.  On Friday, April 11 I will be co-hosting a Bay Area Career Fair and Workshops event at the Cal State East Bay, Concord Campus. More details regarding the event can be found below, including an e-mail link to register. Then, on Friday, April 25 we will have the 2nd Annual 14th Assembly District Women of the Year Celebration in downtown Concord.  For more information and to register for the event, please see below.  I wish to see you at these two events, or any other district events, and thank you for reading.

If she cared about us working folk, she would stop pandering to the illegals that take citizens jobs.

Bonillas sponsorship of the law to let boys into girls locker room. How about she defends that?

huh? April 6, 2014 at 4:34 PM

She is a poor example for a representative of “all” the people…..
go away!!!!!

More than 1.25 Billion to implement Common Core? Are you kidding me? By asking for more funding she is admitting that her first bill was wrong. She has been consistently wrong on so many issues.. where to start? Like Anonymous #3 stated: Bonilla voted to allow boys into girls locker rooms and vice versa. Defend that Ms. Bonilla!

How embarrASSing, Bonilla used churches as a Platform to get her elected.
Fleecing the Sheep.

Anon April 7, 2014 at 7:11 AM

If you hate education, training and good public service…you will not like Susan Bonilla.

You will not like Mark DeSaulnier.

You will not like George Miller.

You will not like Hillary Clinton.

I like Susan Bonilla…Bonilla for State Senate or Congress.

Hmmm 8 against 1. November will be interesting.

Interesting how STEM has added an “A”. Very typical of our leaders to dilute the concept of technical education so that another group doesn’t feel left out. That way more people can contribute money to her campaign. That’s how we got so many graduates with useless degrees that are complaining about the lack of jobs. Maybe these art graduates will be able to make better signs for begging at the off ramp.
