Weird Al Yankovic video demonstrates creativity, versatility of CDFA IT programming staff

One of CDFA’s Information Technology programmers, Jarret Heather, is enjoying a richly deserved moment in the spotlight for his work on a side project, animation for a video by performer Weird Al Yankovic. The video, for a parody song called Word Crimes, is viewable below, as is a recent feature story about Jarret in the Sacramento Bee.

In a nod to the agency that we appreciate, the video segment includes a “Care-O-Meter” that was certified by CDFA’s Division of Measurement Standards, which is responsible for regulating all weights and measures in California.

The video reflects CDFA’s philosophy that employees be encouraged to express creativity and explore their talents to find their true calling on the job. We see this as essential for our staff to foster relationships, identify additional aptitudes, and promote the learning process throughout their careers. As it relates to Jarrett, he has created a number highly valued animation projects for CDFA that helped prepare him for this moment.

We enthusiastically congratulate Jarret for his achievement. We hope many more of our employees enjoy similar opportunities in their areas of interest and expertise.
