Quotes

"Consultation with Congress is definitely important to Mr. Thompson," says spokesman Austin Vevurka via email, "and that's why he stressed in his statement that action should be taken "with the cooperation and involvement of Congress.""
...They will help our cities and towns repair the damage that was caused by the earthquake," said Thompson. "However, these funds do not help individuals in our community who are still struggling to get back on their feet. This is the worst earthquake the BayBay Area has seen in 25 years. Many families have significant damage to their homes and personal property. Our government cannot turn their backs on them in their time of need. I urge the White House to take the next important step and approve federal disaster assistance for individual families as requested by the State of California."
"This Labor Day, let's commit ourselves to jumpstarting the middle class by creating good jobs, raising the minimum wage, and making higher education affordable. Let's commit ourselves to making sure everyone who works hard and plays be the rules has an equal and fair opportunity to achieve the American Dream."
"This decision is big help to our local businesses who have been severely impacted the earthquake," said Thompson. "It will give them one less thing to worry about as they get back on their feet. Anyone who has questions about applying for this assistance should consider my office a resource and contact us with any questions."
