Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger visited Palo Alto Thursday morning to shake hands with carpenters and construction workers who are building a 56-unit apartment complex for very-low-income seniors. (Listen to audio from the governor's visit)
"We're not just sitting around," Schwarzenegger said. "We're doing something to turn the economy around."
Money from Prop. 1C will "jump start" 14 housing projects around the state, Schwarzenegger said, including the Palo Alto project.
"This is going to be a whole community that is going to be developed here," he said.
The Bridge housing project is part of the Taube-Koret Campus for Jewish Life now under construction at the former Sun Microsystemns property on San Antonio Road.
The governor spoke to housing officials, contruction workers and reporters during his brief visit.
He also answered questions on other topics, including his endorsement of Arizona Sen. John McCain in his presidential bid.
