Mike Noordewier: Denham helped motivate this CEO

A couple of years ago, we were contacted by Jeff Denham’s office and asked if we would like Denham to stop by and talk about some of our concerns. I thought this odd. The election was still some time off. I didn’t immediately see a reason why he would care to meet with us. We readily agreed to have him come in, but his purpose eluded us. Jeff came in and spoke to our employees. He was very informed about the Valley’s issues, and I found myself agreeing with most of his ideas. Then he did something I never expected – he met with my partner and me and challenged us to grow – to reject the recession, avoid layoffs and add more jobs.
