It has been a great start to the New Year. In this newsletter you will find highlights from the Governor’s proposed budget, information on Valley Fever, and updates from events that took place in Assembly District 32. I will be sending out e-Alerts with information on upcoming events and important dates. Lastly, it is bill introduction season, so check my website in the coming weeks to learn more about the legislation I am working on this year.
I hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your loved ones! With a new year right around the corner, I’d like to share with you some of my recent events and provide resources that may help make 2019 a little brighter and easier. This month’s roundup also includes important information on Covered California Open Enrollment and Funding Your College Career.
Happy Holidays! I hope that you and your loved ones had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. This month, I’ve been able to participate in some great local events like our Trunk or Treat fall family celebrations and I had the opportunity to send off the cross country runners as the honorary "starter" at the McFarland High School Jim White Invitational.
Fall is finally here and it has been a busy month! I have been working with Bakersfield College to invest in workforce development, beautifying our communities by planting trees, and hosting free self-defense classes in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The legislative year ended last month and I am excited to announce that three of my bills to fight Valley Fever were signed into law, along with a number of other pieces of legislation I authored that will help families in the Central Valley.
This has been a busy summer in the 32nd Assembly district! In this newsletter you will find more information about the back-to-school supply drive and distribution events I hosted as families and kids prepared for the new school year, investments we are making in public safety infrastructure for the Valley, updates on my efforts this year to fight valley fever, the unveiling of a Valley Fever Institute in Bakersfield, and the Stratford community rallying together for clean drinking water.
Last month, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed a state budget that delivers for the Valley and invests in our communities and our future. I fought to secure funding for Valley Fever research and awareness, investing in public safety infrastructure in Kings County to keep our families and communities safe, expanding workforce development programs at Bakersfield College and surrounding communities, and funding for three independent living centers including the Independent Living Center of Kern County. For more information, visit the budget update section of this newsletter.
As the weather begins to heat up, so are negotiations and debates around budget proposals and legislation inside the Capitol. To learn more about legislation that I am working on this year to help hardworking families in the Valley, visit the legislative updates section.

Greetings! Spring is finally here, which means that I am working on legislation and budget negotiations to help the communities and families of the Central Valley.
