Governor Davis touted his record on education Monday during a rally at Cal State University Chico. Davis told a group of construction workers and students on campus that he has held off tuition increases, despite the state´s budget problems. He also said voters have realized his commitment to education and he´s starting to get more credit for it.
While Davis´ Republican challenger Bill Simon got an endorsement today from the California Farm Bureau Federation, Davis said he also has done plenty for California agriculture. He touted tax breaks that he signed to aid farmers during last year´s budget negotiations, and a new campaign to encourage residents to buy produce grown in California. He also brushed off Simon´s criticism of the farm worker mediation bill he signed last month.
