Trunk or Treat Flyer

Did you know that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime and 1 out of 6 women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime? To empower victims and help prevent domestic violence and sexual assault, I am hosting a free self-defense class at Camarillo Jiu Jitsu in Bakersfield.

The unique class provides an opportunity for men and women to join experienced instructors from a top competition Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school to learn and practice self-defense techniques while gaining valuable information and strategies for avoiding potentially dangerous situations such as dating violence, college campus assaults, stalkers, domestic violence and sexual assaults.

Gold Star Mothers and Families Tree Planting GraphicGold Star Mothers’ and Families’ Day is observed on the last Sunday in September to recognize surviving military mothers and families, and honor the legacy of service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation.

I was honored to author the Assembly Resolution recognizing Gold Star Mothers’ and Families’ Day in California. Joining together with Gold Star families and veterans, I am hosting a tree-planting and dedication ceremony in both Kern and Kings Counties to commemorate our lost heroes and support their families.

In recognizing Gold Star Mothers and Families, we honor the memory of fallen soldiers for their bravery in defense of our freedom, and pay tribute to the unthinkable loss that their family and loved ones endure every day.

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

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 repairs at a participating STAR smog shop. 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 passed a bill (AB 188) in 2017 that makes 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 and look forward to hearing from you!
