President Barack Ohama I he White I louse 1600 Pennsylvania venue NW \ ashington, DC 20500 Dear Mr. President. Thank you for your recent address to Congress on the need to make job creation the top priority this Iegis1atie session and for your proposals in regard to invigorating private sector job growth. As the Representatie from a district that has been particularly hardhit during this economic crisis I look forward to working with you to find bipartisan solutions to this issue.

This water crisis has been partly the result of inadequate water storage that prevents the state from storing sufficient water supply and also reduced water allocations from state and federal authorities that hase persisted despite the current year being one of the wettest on record in Ca1ifornia fhere is a direct correlation between the water crisis and unemployment: according to estimates by the niversity of California, every 100 acre feet of water that is lost costs somebody their job. Phat is why as you tour the nation to discuss your job creation proposals I would like to take the occasion to mite you to join me in my district to examine the particular issues that hare contributed to high levels of Iongterm unemployment in California’s Central Valley. where communities are struggling with unemployment rates as high as 20° o. Many of these job losses are concentrated among lower wage workers, further stressing social service programs in the state. I would invite you to join me at a food bank here in the Valley to see firsthand the hardship experienced by so many. As a farmer and a former State Senator I know that through a combination ot targeted infrastructure investment and regulatory reform we can soixe this crisis and have an immediate, positise impact on the labor markt r (alifbmia V% bile I an mindful that we will not al s a 1 on how to booct job creatior I belicc rce
