Stuff the Bus Graphic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come to "Stuff the Bus," a school supply drive, and help make sure that schoolchildren have the supplies that they need to succeed. The school supply drive will collect backpacks, pencils, notebooks, and other items to support students in local schools. 

Too many students do not even have these supplies when they go back to school. With your help, we are working to remedy that situation.

Fifth Annual Car Seat Safety Check

 

 

 

 

In partnership with the California Highway Patrol, I am hosting my fifth annual Car Seat Safety Check-Up event to help parents ensure the safety of their children.  Specially trained technicians will be available to inspect car seats and make sure that they are properly installed and equipped. It is estimated that 73% of car seats are not used or installed correctly. Technicians will also demonstrate proper installation methods to ensure each child is properly secured in their seat.

The event is free and no appointment is needed. Attendees are welcome to bring questions about public safety and other important legislative issues. I hope to see you there!
