Legislative Day – A Letter From Our GAOR 2021 President

Yesterday we joined the California Association of REALTORS® and our colleagues all over the state for Legislative Day. It started in the morning with a large presentation from CAR on the issues affecting us every day. We also heard from our state leaders including Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, Senate Republican Leader Scott Wilk and Governor Gavin Newsom. Because we are a non-partisan organization, we know how to work with everyone, across party lines, so that we can focus on improving housing in our state and get important work done. About 2,300 people listened to the Governor’s speech online today. Next year, since we expect the pandemic to be in the rear-view mirror by then, we will be in Sacramento in person to meet with our state leaders and remind them about the need to make housing a priority for everyone. If you are interested in participating in Legislative Day...
