COMMUNITY VOICES: Open trade with our neighbors is a win for the Central Valley
Here in the Central Valley, our farmers, farmworkers and agricultural employees work hard to help put food on dinner tables across the nation.
In 2018, CA exported $48.4B to Canada & Mexico, supporting nearly 240,000 jobs & creating more than $29B in economic value. Free trade with these neighboring countries powers the 5th largest economy in the world!
Unfortunately, our president’s positive direction is often met with unnecessary attacks by Gov. Gavin Newsom. These political attacks may serve as a headline for the governor, but they are destroying livelihoods in the Valley. He cannot continue assaulting the industries that make Kern County strong just because he likes media attention.
