A TIME FOR MOURNING AND ACTION, NOT EMPTY POLITICAL RHETORIC

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (MAY 26, 2021) – Earlier today, former Congressman Doug Ose released the following statement regarding the tragic event at the San Jose rail yard:

“I do not have the words to express my sorrow for the victims and families of those forever impacted by the horrific event in San Jose today, and my prayers go out to each and every life impacted.  Leadership means grieving with those hurting and directing law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation to uncover how and why this happened.  Then we must do all we can to ensure these types of tragedies don’t happen again.  Nobody is well-served by jumping to conclusions before facts are known.

“I can’t comprehend why Governor Newsom routinely uses tragic events as self-serving opportunities to deploy his empty rhetoric and advance his political agenda.  This is not leadership.”
