Rep. Royce Invites Southern California Jobs Creator as Guest to State of the Union

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Ed Royce (CA-39) announced his guest to be seated in the House gallery during the President’s first State of the Union address.

“I’m honored to have a local Southern California jobs creator join me as my guest for this year’s State of the Union,” said Rep. Royce. James Lin is the CEO of Unified Network Information Services LLC., headquartered in Walnut, CA. James grew a small trucking company into a high-tech, global supply chain corporation. UNIS also manufactures electronics and is growing jobs in California; the company employs more than 1,100 full-time employees. “I believe the state of our union is strongest when job creators, like James, have the opportunity to thrive,” said Rep. Royce.

James also participated in Rep. Royce’s inaugural Southern California Competitiveness Council last July. This event brought together small and medium businesses in Southern California for a discussion on how to better compete in the 21st century economy. During the event, Rep. Royce highlighted James’ accomplishments as a jobs creator saying, “James is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and executive. His amazing story of success – taking the company his father grew from one truck and one employee – to where it is today is the American Dream in action.”
