John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), US-President. Typed Letter Signed as President, on green White House letterhead, Washington, February 9, 1962. “...I want to thank you for the role you played in making the Conferences a success. I feel the Conferences were a unique experiment in which Federal, State and local officials communicated directly and understandingly with each other and with the people of America. The exchange of ideas stimulated by the Conferences will enable our nation to move forward at an increased rate toward its goal of a more bountiful life for all the people. I was most gratified by the response to the Regional Conferences...” – Kennedy sought to improve the lives of the American people, and he articulated the issues to be tackled. “We have a steadily rising population. We have the problem of maintaining high employment. We want education for our children. We want our families to live in decent housing. We want to keep our employment steadily growing, and to take advantage of the millions of young men and women who are coming into the labor market everywhere. And we want to provide security for our older citizens.” In November 1961, he called a set of innovative White House Regional Conferences, both to obtain ideas on measures and methods to attain these goals, and to ensure that the government in Washington remained close to the people at home. Representatives of various Federal agencies and departments traveled to major cities to talk to informed and interested citizens about the difficulties they faced, and what government might do help solve their problems. Governor Brown played an active role in the San Francisco and Los Angeles conferences.
