Senators Scott Wilk and Melissa Hurtado request Governor keep EDD open 24/7 to clear backlog
SACRAMENTO - Senators Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District and Melissa Hurtado, representing the 14th Senate District, announced they have submitted a request to Governor Newsom urging him to issue an Executive Order to keep EDD phone lines and operations open and fully staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until the delay in claims processing is addressed.

"When our constituents can't feed their families or keep roofs over their heads because EDD has failed to process month's old unemployment claims, it is not a political issue - it is a crisis," said Wilk. "California is in a crisis and without drastic actions the situation at EDD will only continue to deteriorate; especially if the state continues on the trajectory of opening and closing businesses in response to the pandemic. If EDD doesn't clear this up quickly people will end up out of their homes and in the streets."

"The COVID pandemic has created unprecedented unemployment throughout the state. While the statewide average sits around 15%, parts of the southern central valley is upward of 24%," said Hurtado. "To address this extraordinary time in the pandemic we have no choice but to provide unfettered access to help process claims."

The City of Lancaster Seeks Community Help in Choosing a New City Logo and Brand
We are seeking input from our community to re-think, re-invent, and re-ignite the Lancaster image.

Lancaster, CA – As the City continues to evolve, a brand created a decade ago no longer meets the City’s needs. After months of comprehensive research, community outreach, design development, and working with Selbert Perkins Design (SPD), the City of Lancaster is primed to unveil a new brand!

Lancaster was founded by the nation’s original pioneers and continues to create the future through science, technology, art, community, and culture. “As home to astronauts, rocket scientists, awesome families, and unique businesses large and small, Lancaster is leading the USA with innovation” Mayor R. Rex Parris said. “This is really exciting, it is not just changing the logo; it is much more significant than that. It is a huge change, and the more community input we get, the better”.

The City of Lancaster’s brand will be a reflection of its reputation for many years to come. The goal is to look at the big picture to provide an innovative and integrated media solution that will build the Lancaster Brand in all media. The brand will engage the public and integrate analog and digital technologies to create a dynamic experience for all residents and visitors to Lancaster.

Assemblyman Lackey Calls for Audit of the EDD
The frustration with the Employment Development Department (EDD) has reached a tipping point. Every day, my office is contacted by members of the community whose livelihoods have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I have heard countless stories of families struggling to get by, single-income homes worried about where their next meal will come from and young people unable to make rent. It is time for the EDD to be held accountable for the hardships it has amplified in the lives of millions.

I am calling for an internal audit of the Employment Development Department to address the negligence and severe understaffing of the institution during this COVID-19 crisis. Please click here for more information.
