  1. The correct, full name of the California Aqueduct is the, "Governor Edmund G. Brown California Aqueduct." When Governor Edmund Brown ran for Governor he ran under the motto, "Responsible Liberalism."

The legacy of Governor Jerry Brown will always be to me that he failed to do anything to fix the California Water System, never building any new reservoirs or repairing the older infrastructure. Governor Jerry Brown has been Governor for 4 terms, and he has failed in focusing on the important Infrastructure projects, instead focusing on a bullet train that will cost billions, and the taxpayers WILL subsidize the ticket prices to compete against airlines like Southwest. The State Government of California is a complete failure!
