    At last, an election result to celebrate. I remember when Jerry Brown was Governor last and I mean to tell you that this state was in darn good shape back then. I had a good job, a good life, and businesses prospered in this state. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't perfect and since that time our population has grown extensively and the economic environment itself has become very unstable, but Jerry Brown is very much in touch with what's going on with the people and always has been. He may not have fancy answers for the state's problems but he does have the necessary experience to deal with hard headed legislators and to get the wheels of change in motion. He is also very "environmentally" minded and has implemented very successful programs that have allowed Californians to get their energy needs met while protecting alot of our vital natural resources.
