McCarthy Statement on Newsom Visit to Bakersfield
Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement on Governor Gavin Newsom’s Bakersfield visit to discuss homelessness initiatives:
"Homelessness is a severe crisis in California and our community. As policy makers and community members, we must explore every potential solution to this problem. This must transcend politics, and federal, state, and local collaboration on this matter is the only way we can end homelessness. I am glad that Governor Newsom recognizes the unique perspective that the city of Bakersfield offers when it comes to helping our neighbors, and I am hopeful that we can work together to spur progress to improve the lives of all Californians."
