“We are proud and honored that you folks have chosen to make your communities part of our communities” said Baker at the signing.  The ceremony was witnessed by Asian American Pacific Islander caucus Rep. Tacky Chan, Rep. Donald Wong, and Rep. Rady Mom as well as representatives of other elected officials.
