California Governor Jerry Brown spent time away from his Capitol office in Sacramento a few weeks back to visit the California Conservation Corps' statewide headquarters. Brown had a chance to meet with staff and also field questions from several dozen corpsmembers in attendance.

Questions ranged from drought relief to the governor's vision in founding the CCC during his first term in 1976.

This was Gov. Brown's second visit to the CCC headquarters in the last few years.

California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. was filmed this week talking about the California Conservation Corps' Energy Corps, which has done hundreds of energy audits for California schools. The work is funded through the state's Proposition 39 initiative. The Governor's remarks, which also included reflections about today's CCC along with the program he created in 1976, will be included in videos for the Corps. Sacramento corpsmember Nick Mathews, shown with the Governor, is a member of one of the CCC energy crews.

A recent video made by the California Conservation Corps depicted "A day in the life of a Corpsmember" and featured footage and audio of Governor Brown talking about the value of the Corps.
