Today is the first day of the 2022 legislative session. That means new bill proposals, new budget discussions, and new business being discussed in Sacramento. It has been my absolute honor and pleasure to represent you and our 67th district this past year, and I am ready to tackle all the hard work that lies ahead.   My priority has always been listening to your needs and fighting for the issues and concerns of our communities.   In 2021, my team assisted over 2000 constituents with resolving issues with state government agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Franchise Tax…
The New Year is almost here! While many of us plan on gathering with friends and family to celebrate, please remember to stay safe by using a designated driver, public transportation, or a rideshare service. New Year’s Eve has been labeled “the most dangerous night on U.S. roads,” and on average, over 300 people die in drunk-driving related crashes during the New Year holiday season. As a former first responder, I have seen the tragedy of drunk and impaired driving firsthand. I have felt the frustration that such heartbreak could have been prevented. During this legislative session, I was…
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!   Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous, healthy, and safe holiday season.    May you have the opportunity to create wonderful new memories with your family and friends.   It is a privilege to serve you and our 67th District. Thank you.
The state could be holding some of your money! The California State Controller's Office has close to $10 billion in unclaimed property. California law requires banks, insurance companies, corporations, and other entities to submit their customers’ property to the state when there has been no activity for a period of time. California safeguards this lost or forgotten property as long as it takes to reunite it with the rightful owners. Common types of unclaimed property include bank accounts, stocks, bonds, uncashed checks, insurance benefits, wages, inheritance, and safe deposit box contents.…
Today is Small Business Saturday!   Consider exploring your hometown for that perfect cup of coffee, holiday shopping, and locally sourced goods!   Small Businesses are truly the lifeblood of every community. They are the number one supporters of kids athletics and employ the majority of Californians.   When you decide to shop small, not only do you support a small business and a dream, but you uplift our community at the same time.   If you cannot support a small business by purchasing goods or services, consider writing a positive review online, following them on social media, and…
I want to wish you and your family a warm and Happy Thanksgiving!  This year, I am grateful for the privilege to live in and serve this great country and our 67th District.  As we gather, let us also honor and thank the brave men and women serving in our U.S. Armed Forces as they fight to preserve our freedoms here and abroad. We salute them for their service and sacrifice. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts.  From my family to yours, wherever and however you may be celebrating, have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Today we say thank you! Thank you to the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve to protect our safety and defend our freedoms. Thank you for your tireless efforts, service, and dedication. There is no way we can pay back the sacrifices made by these heroes and their families, but today we honor them and let them know their commitment has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Have a blessed and restful Veterans Day!  For more information about the California resources available to veterans and their families, please visit ​CalVet.

This past legislative year, my office sent out a General Issues Survey, both via mail and email, to constituents across our district asking them to share their thoughts on the issues they care about and help shape the policies that affect our state and community. Thousands of people responded, and I wanted to take a moment and share those results with you. I appreciate everyone who took the time to answer these questions. Your input helps my team and I better understand the needs and opinions of our district. If you did not have the opportunity to fill it out, you can still take the survey…
