Message to California manufacturers - prepare yourselves for a wild ride in 2018!

Posted by Dorothy Rothrock, President on Jan. 8, 2018

If there ever was a time to be involved with politics, this is the year. The national economy is growing at a rapid clip. Manufacturers in every sector are making bold new investments and hiring more workers.  Communities across the country are attracting manufacturers to their states to improve wages and quality of life for their citizens. 

We want California to be a leader in this national manufacturing revival.

How will that happen?  We need to tell candidates for Governor, legislators and local officials what you need to grow and prosper.    

This year is crucial.  The election in November will not only determine the next Governor, it could also bring new taxes and mandates through the ballot box. This year the legislature will debate dozens of proposals related to taxes, energy, climate change, labor protections, and workforce development.

CMTA will be smack in the middle of it all.  We didn’t get to be 100 years old by sitting around!

In fact, our Centennial celebration will be dedicated to showing that manufacturing is the engine that powered California in the past and will keep us on the cutting-edge of technological advancement in the future.  

CMTA lobbyists and communications team are on the job for you.  They will tell you what’s happening, listen to your concerns and make forceful arguments to our elected officials.  We’ll hold them accountable and let you know when they do the right thing…or not! 

Thanks for being part of the CMTA family. It is a pleasure and honor to represent California manufacturers in Sacramento. 

Best wishes for a prosperous New Year!
