Dear Neighbor,

Very happy to announce that several important pieces of legislation have moved forward from the Assembly and will now be moving through the Senate. We’re very proud of our work on behalf of our communities and the people of California. This is only a partial list of our legislative package, take a look below:

Housing and Homelessness

Dear neighbor,

Individuals experiencing homelessness or domestic violence often are denied shelter if they don’t surrender their pets. When pets are surrendered, less than 15% are reunited, furthering depression and anxiety among our most vulnerable.

Dear neighbor,

It is my pleasure to invite all community members involved in non-profit organizations operating in Assembly District 52 to join my office for a town hall and panel discussion. This event will provide non-profit organizations with an excellent opportunity to learn about the state resources available to support community initiatives across our district.

Through the discussions, we will provide an opportunity for community-based organizations to network and share ideas. Details and RSVP below:

Dear friend,

With so many in our community still facing severe economic challenges as a result of being displaced or evacuated by this year’s winter storms, power outages, and flooding, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the ability to use SNAP benefits to purchase HOT foods and foods intended to be consumed on retailer premises.

Hot foods may now be purchased with SNAP EBT benefits through May 2, 2023, are considered SNAP eligible during this period and NOT subject to sales tax.

Dear friend,

With this year’s legislative cycle well underway, my office has partnered with conservation organizations and advocates across the state to address the unfortunate damages that abandoned oil wells continue to have today in California. When their original operators do not assume responsibility for their cleanup, Californians like you foot the bill.
