The Inland Empire’s road to economic recovery will be the focus of a resource fair and panel discussions in San Bernardino Thursday, Oct. 29 for residents and community members of the 62nd District, which includes Colton, San Bernardino, Muscoy, Fontana, Rialto and Bloomington.

State Assembly Member Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto) is sponsoring the Town Hall event from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., which is called, “Economic Recovery: Where Do We Go From Here?” The event will offer exhibits and information on workforce training and foreclosure prevention as well as two panel discussions on the issues.

California Assembly Speaker Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) is the keynote speaker. She will discuss what is happening at the state level to help the Inland Empire weather today’s rough economic times and for residents to secure their financial future.

“Assemblymember Carter’s Town Hall is a great venue for discussing how we can continue to pull ourselves out of this economic crisis,” Speaker Bass said. “With both high unemployment and foreclosures rates still plaguing our state, it’s wonderful to see residents of the 62nd Assembly District coming together and addressing these issues, as well as looking at ways to help workers retool and succeed in new information and green job markets.”

Assemblymember Carter said that she is looking forward to meeting with her constituents to “explore innovative solutions to job and housing market problems that my District and the entire state are facing.”

The event is at National Orange Show, Valencia Room, 689 S. “E” Street in San Bernardino. The resource fair is from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. The panel discussions are at 5:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. and will address “Avoiding Foreclosure” and “Career Horizons.”

The speakers are representing the Inland Empire Economic Recovery Corporation; Springboard; Workforce Investment Board; San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office; San Bernardino Valley Community College. Other legislators and public officials will be attending.
