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!

Safe Halloween TipsAutumn is finally here! I am thrilled to tell you that my office has partnered with organizations and community leaders to host "A Safe Halloween" and fall celebrations throughout District 32 where families, children and friends can safely trick-or-treat and enjoy fall festivities. I hope that you and your family are able to make it and join the fun!

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind for trick-or-treating:

  • Place reflective tape on costumes and provide flashlights for visibility.
  • Remind children never to get in a car with a stranger.
  • Tell children that it's never OK to enter a stranger's home.
  • Trick-or-treat in a group.
  • Adults should carefully check all treats before they are eaten.
  • Parents should stay close to younger children.
  • Stay on the sidewalk - don't jaywalk.

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.
