Brown Declines Press Club Invite

Katy Grimes: Gov. Jerry Brown has declined an invitation to speak to the Sacramento Press Club – and what a shame, as previous governors before him have graciously addressed the club.

According to Press Club President Rich Ehisen, the club has been asking Brown to speak for nearly two years.

“We’ve checked the Governor’s schedule and unfortunately he won’t be able to participate in a luncheon at this time. My apologies. We appreciate the invitation, and have it on-file. There may come a point when this is a possibility, but for now we’ll need to decline,” wrote Brown’s spokeswoman, Elizabeth Ashford in an email to Ehisen.

As a new press club board member, I  am hoping that Brown reconsiders and pulls the request out of his file sooner rather than later.
