March 31st marks the official California holiday to celebrate the life of civil rights leader and labor activist, César Chávez. During this time, community groups, schools, organizations and individuals nationwide will commemorate his legacy through education, celebration and a day of service. You can work at a food bank, teach a child, help a co-worker or any act of public service to make the world a better place in César Chávez’s memory. Please join me at either of the following events to honor his legacy with a day of service:

Valley 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 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 in 2017  – 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 and look forward to hearing from you!
