Aera hosts Central Valley BizFed Leadership Roundtable with Rep. Kevin McCarthy

As part of its membership in the Central Valley Biz Fed, Aera hosted Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who represents the 23rd Congressional District, who shared his thoughts about some of the top issues impacting local businesses, but he also came with advice for the local energy companies in the room:  “Explain the macro story, how higher energy prices make California unaffordable. Shift the conversation away from the Central Valley and tell the story about how this affects people’s ability to live in other parts of California.”  With representatives from small, medium and large businesses in attendance, McCarthy laid out some of the challenges facing the country: the country needs to have an “all of the above approach” to energy; fix the immigration policy; improve workforce development; rebuild the military; and that both the Republicans and Democrats need to learn to compromise. The Central Valley Biz Fed’s central mission is to become a stronger voice for Central Valley businesses.
