Search CAL. GOV. CODE § 11120 : California Code – Section 11120
Government agencies and organizations are exclusively created to perform the work of the people. (California Constitution) Those employed to staff these public agencies are public servants. The job assignment of every public servant is exclusively created to serve the public in what ever capacity is required to perform the work of the people.
The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies or the public servants which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.
Summary of inherent rights:
The ultimate authority and the restrictions imposed upon the government agencies and the public servants who perform the work of the people is stated as follows:

- “the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.” ― Article 3, Section 1
- “English is the official language of the State of California.” ― Article 3, Section 6(b)
