Perry Taking ‘Economic Development Trip’ To California
AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is heading to California to meet with business owners and promote Texas’ favorable job creation climate.
The trip follows a week-long radio campaign in California which aimed to convince companies there to relocate to the Lone Star state.
Perry will travel to San Francisco, the Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Orange County to meet with business leaders in the high tech, biotechnology, financial, insurance and film industries. He departs on Sunday, Feb. 10 and will return to Texas on Feb. 13.
The trip is funded by TexasOne. No tax dollars will be used for the travel or accommodations.
California Gov. Jerry Brown downplayed the ads and noted the insignificant amount invested by Perry.
