"I can be more productive working at a job fair in my district" - Andy Vidak
Thursday, January 25, 2018

Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) issued the following statement today on the Senate Democrats' panicked plan to continue Tony Mendoza's paid vacation by quickly passing Senate Resolution 79 this morning:

"Given the choice of helping match job seekers with employers looking to hire, OR dealing with the pay Mendoza charade (SR 79) planned for the Senate Floor today, I choose to be productive and work at the job fair in my district."

Vidak is in Lemoore today for his fourth annual Career & Resource Expo, which connects people looking for jobs with employers who have current job openings. Today’s job fair has over 80 confirmed employers scheduled to attend, all of whom have current job openings that need to be filled.
