Mike Betts is the chairman and CEO of one of FBA’s oldest members — the Betts Company, a sixth-generation family-owned manufacturer and supplier of springs and heavy-duty truck parts in Fresno, founded in 1868. At the 10th Annual FBA Meeting of Members on November 9, he introduced members to a new organization — the New California Coalition.

The New California Coalition is the non-partisan political home and voice for over 6.5 million “Common Sense” voters across California who want results. The group is organizing everyday voters, business leaders, and community organizations from across the state into a movement to demand change and action.

Betts provided copies of a white paper, Seizing the Semiconductor Opportunity in California-Oct20, on how California could increase competitiveness and capture federal CHIPS Act funding recently sent to the Governor, along with an op-ed published in the Fresno Bee, OP-ED NCC Heartland Chapter Final, about why Betts and other Central Valley business leaders have signed on.
