Since the conclusion of the legislative session in September I have had the great pleasure of spending my time in the 21st Assembly District attending community events, meeting with local leaders and residents and holding local office hours in numerous communities to hear directly from constituents about their concerns and priorities.
My first session as a member of the State Legislature is now concluding and it’s been a very productive year.
It’s finally summer and I am looking forward to the next phase of the legislative session.
Foremost, the Legislature passed the State Budget on June 15, 2023 that addresses the State Budget deficit as detailed in the Governor’s recently released May Budget Revision which proposes to close a projected $31.5 billion budget shortfall while protecting key investments in the issues that matter most to Californians, including education, health care, housing and homelessness, public safety, public transit and climate action.
Welcome to my inaugural newsletter!
As your State Assemblymember, I look forward to informing you about important state issues, what I am doing on your behalf and critical state services and programs that impact local residents.
My first few months in the Legislature have been busy.
