(Irvine) — Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Orange County) hosted California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. in Orange County, where they held a media availability immediately after a private tour of proposed sites for a new state veterans cemetery in Irvine. Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva and Governor Brown also met with local officials and community groups. “There is still more work to be done to see this through, and I will continue to push the state to do its part on the project. The men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for this nation deserve proper recognition without further delay; and, the taxpayers of Orange County need to know they will not be asked to foot the bill for big land developers. I urge all parties to proceed with these two goals in mind,” said Quirk-Silva.
