If you have been on our Facebook page or read our recent blog post then you know there is a lot of news/buzz circulating about state budget allocations for the DDS department. As many of you know, our budgets have seen far too many cuts in the last 10 years, and we really need to be made whole. We are hoping Jerry Brown does the right thing and gives us at least 10%! Many from our team went down to the Capitol on Monday, May 18th to rally around our cause. We had the opportunity to sit in on a hearing where we heard from some of our Assembly members (Mostly Tony Thurmond and Shannon Grove) and some representatives of DDS. Our presence was definitely seen and heard as they adjusted their schedule to accommodate for the large number of guests there to advocate for our cause. Time is running out and we need to continue to spread the message. Please go here and reach out to Jerry Brown, Assembly members, and Senate members. Your voice makes a difference!
