At California Forward, we’ve been following the California cities that have recently filed for bankruptcy. We are paying attention to these issues because California Forward believes that our residents need to be engaged.
San Bernardino is the latest to file for bankruptcy protection.

It’s attracted some big name companies to set up shop there, pumping some life into an economy that needed it.
Online retail giant Amazon is the latest to sign up.
