Tune In and Tune UpValley residents may be eligible to receive incentives to repair or replace their high polluting vehicles!

Bring your car or truck in for an emissions test at no charge. The first 525 vehicles that qualify will receive a $500 voucher for smog repair. Complimentary food and refreshments will be available to participants, while supplies last.

After hearing from folks at past Tune In and Tune Up events, I introduced a bill this year – AB 188 – that will help get more high polluting vehicles off the road by making light-duty trucks that fail emissions tests qualify for the state's vehicle retirement and replacement programs. I hope to see you at the event this Saturday and look forward to hearing from you!

WHEN:
Saturday, August 19
8 a.m. – Noon

WHERE:

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. So, with your help, we are working to remedy that situation. 

Assemblymember Salas will be there to answer any questions you may have regarding any state or legislative issues.

National Night OutNational Night Out is a program that not only creates cohesion within the community, but also builds bridges with local law enforcement.

This year, on the evening of August 1, residents in neighborhoods all across America are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors and police.

National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and will involve at least 15,000 communities in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases all around the world.

On a local level, National Night Out includes residents, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, local businesses, neighborhood organizations, religious groups and local officials.

Please find a list of National Out Events in Assembly District 32 listed below. For more information on how to get involved in this year’s efforts, please contact my office.

Happy 4th of JulyThe nation's founders risked ruin, war and death to develop this country and our government system. I am reminded of that each Fourth of July when we celebrate our Declaration of Independence from England. Thomas Jefferson and others wrote that the day of the signing must be celebrated throughout the entirety of the Republic.

With that in mind, I was proud to support Assembly Concurrent Resolution 107, which calls on Californians to study our nation's history during the Fourth of July holiday and expresses gratitude to those who serve and have served in our Armed Forces.

4th of July Safety Tips for your family and pets
CAL FIRE's Office of the State Fire Marshal has the following tips:

  • Local ordinances should be verified before purchasing and/or using fireworks.
  • Always read directions.
  • Always have an adult present.
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Never use near dry grass or other flammable materials.
  • Light one at a time.
  • Keep a safe distance.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  • Never experiment with fireworks.
  • Have a bucket of water and a hose handy.
  • Never attempt to re-light or "fix" fireworks.
  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets.
  • Fireworks are not toys.
  • Use only State Fire Marshal approved fireworks.
  • Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, please resist the urge to take them to festivities. Instead, keep your pets safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home.
