Yes governor, you have done a job on balancing the state budget. You talked the people into passing a tax bond. You released felons back on the street, moving more to county responsibility and saving millions of dollars.

It will take a while to adjust to only leaving your house during the day and locking your doors at night. You have not addressed the billions in debt owed for state retirement, which will double in ten years, and fire protection tax for rural residents.

Governor, you have fee increases from almost every state agency and property tax increases without paying our bills, so you are sitting on a truck load of cash. Governor we are still in a recession no matter how you want to sugarcoat it.

Governor stop patting yourself on the back. Your job as governor is no better than your job as mayor of Oakland. You are a professional politician and know all the ins and outs of politics. There are hard choices to be made and I personally don’t think you are up to the job.

    Gov. Brown is a fiscal Conservative. That's about all he's got going for him. If it wasn't for him, his cronie Dems would still be spending money liike drunken sailors. He's a cheapskate, that's for sure Not unlike the Republicans of the state

    We balance our spending in California and have started to pay down our debt. Some people don't know a good thing when it smacks them in the face.
