Feinstein Announces Infrastructure Funds for California
Dianne Feinstein proves once again that when it comes to spending she doesn’t care about Southern California. Add the numbers below to the monies that will be appropriated to clean up San Francisco Bay and Lake Tahoe and we have an 89-year-old Senator who needs to be replaced by the up and coming Elizabeth Emken. I’ve had the pleasure listening to Elizabeth speak in a town hall fashion, it is certainly apparent that this is a woman on a mission. The mission is simple to do everything she possibly can once elected to help turn the country around. She’s a fiscal conservative, and advocate of the 2nd Amendment, and will immediately sign bills to start the Keystone Pipeline, as well as dismantling and replacing Obama Care should the Supreme Court fail to do so.
Elizabeth Emken is a content married woman with a lovely family and oldest son with Autism. My sense is she will serve her terms and happily return to the private sector. Unlike Feinstein/Pelosi it’s not probable she will be dying with her boots on. Elizabeth Emken is exactly What the Founding Father’s had in mind, a person that would come to Washington, accomplish goals and objectives and then go back to their lives. That has clearly been lost on many of our members of congress who have made their positions a career.
Should you like Dianne Feinstein, do her a favor and send her home so she can retire.
Elizabeth is eminently more qualified. Before becoming active with the autism issue, Elizabeth served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S. – helping streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of dollars.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
Washington—The U.S. Department of Transportation today informed Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, that it will award three critical infrastructure investment grants to California. The grants, part of the TIGER 2012 Discretionary Grants Program that was authorized during the fiscal year 2012 Appropriations process, will be awarded to Oakland, Sacramento and San Francisco.
“Infrastructure projects like these are a win-win for California—they create much-needed jobs and critical improvements to the networks that keep our state moving,” said Senator Feinstein. “I was proud to support these projects, and I will continue to advocate for transportation and other critical state infrastructure projects that put Californians back to work and modernize our state.”
California projects that will receive TIGER grants: (See where the money actually comes from, she’s blowing smoke again.)
- $15 million to the Port of Oakland for increased rail access and capacity at the port.
- $15 million to Sacramento to rehabilitate the 1926 Sacramento Valley Station.
- $10 million to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency for the Mission Bay/UCSF Hospital Multimodal Transportation Infrastructure project.
