It's always the police and firefighters that they dems target first. Why doesn't Gov. Moonbeam furlough staff in Sacramento first. He'd save more money, as they make more than the CHP. My sister worked for the State in Sac, and would complaint that the co-workers in the State House would show up late for work (or not at all), leave early, constantly complaining about how much work they had, although it was their interns and junior staffers that did all the work.

The troopers are working every day, all day, but they have to make the cuts.

Wait until LEO's and firefighters find out that CA is BROKE and won't be able to pay their retirements! Fiscal mismanagement by mostly liberals, but some conservatives and that the illegals here have been coddled for so long and have taken up so much public money, cities and the state are bankrupt!
