More conciliatory talk in Sacramento: First Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vowed to cooperate with legislative Democrats, and now Democrats promise to return the favor. “We want to work hard to improve upon the standard of living in this state,” said Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuez, D-Los Angeles. “If that means we’re going to work closely with the governor this year to help him get things done and that might help him in his re-election, so be it.” It’s refreshing to hear Democrats and Republicans speak the language of cooperation and civility. And given the nonideological nature of the governor’s current agenda – overhauling state infrastructure – there’s no reason why both sides shouldn’t be able to put aside their usual partisanship in the interest of the public. Still, politics is politics, and this is an election year. We would love for all sides to work together, but we’ll believe it when we see it. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
