National Night Out

On the evening of August 7th, 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 in honor of National Night Out. This tradition strengthens the community and builds relationships with local law enforcement.

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.

National Night Out brings together local residents, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations, religious groups, local officials and community leaders.

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!
