A NOTE FROM FREDDIE
I hope the new year is treating you well. We have a number of exciting community events coming up in February that I hope you will take advantage of, beginning with a Covered California Enrollment Event on February 7th. With the financial aid application season upon us, I will be holding three Cash for College Workshops to offer assistance with filling out the FAFSA and identifying other financial aid opportunities. And on February 14th I will be working with the California Insurance Commissioner to offer a Low Cost Auto Insurance Workshop to bring you information about Affordable Auto Insurance options. If you are interested in attending any of these events, please RSVP by visiting my website or calling my district office at (909) 902-9606.
The legislative session kicked off on January 5th with the inauguration of Governor Jerry Brown for a historic fourth term in office. I am pleased that Governor Brown highlighted improving our local roads and highways as one of his top priorities for California. I look forward to working with the governor to bring much needed infrastructure improvements to our community.
I have hit the ground running in Sacramento and have introduced ten bills so far for this session. You can read more about the bills I have authored in the Legislative Update section of this month’s newsletter.
As we continue our work in Sacramento, I want your help guiding my legislative priorities for this year. Earlier this month, I sent out an online survey to residents in our district asking for your input on the most important issues facing our community. To those of you who have completed the survey, I thank you. Your feedback is invaluable. Your responses have helped support the argument for local control of the Ontario Airport which I wrote about in the Daily Bulletin last Wednesday.
If you have not had a chance to take the survey yet, you may do so by visiting my website.
As always, my door is always open to you. If you have an idea for legislation or if you need help with any state related issue, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working together.
Assemblymember, 52nd District
