Summer 2022 Newsletter
I hope that you and your family have been having a safe, healthy and happy start to your summer! It’s been great to see so many of you in person over the last few weeks with California’s full reopening. It has been such a hard last year for so many, and my office has remained focused on our community’s full recovery. I want to encourage you to reach out to us at any time if you have questions, concerns, or are in need of assistance with state agencies like the Employment Development Department or need our help. I also wanted to provide you with some updates about our office!
Our Office is Moving!
Our office will be moving to a new location within San Ramon’s Bishop Ranch office complex because of a very exciting project that is bringing brand new housing to the site where we are currently located.
PLEASE NOTE OUR OFFICE PHONE NUMBER HAS CHANGED TO: (925) 244-1600.
I look forward to inviting you to our new space.
It’s hard to believe that I have been your representative in the State Assembly for just over 6 months now, and it has been the honor of a lifetime to represent our community. Throughout these past few months I have been very busy. We created our legislative package, held committee hearings, hosted community events, and spent most of my time engaging with my constituents.
Up in Sacramento, we recently reached a substantial deadline in the legislative session, when bills had to leave their house of origin - I am proud to inform you that ten of the bills I authored have made it onto the State Senate. They focus on important issues like protecting our environment, our most vulnerable children, gun control, protecting college students, victims of sexual exploitation, and individuals with food allergies, along with prioritizing district issues and transportation projects in AD16. It was important for me to carry a legislative package that reflected our District’s values, and I am proud I was able to accomplish that. I look forward to continuing to advocate for these bills as they make their way through the Senate, and hopefully all the way to the Governor’s desk.
The Governor also recently signed his budget, and I am very proud to see that several projects I advocated for are included. Our District will be receiving $300k for Lafayette’s Brook Street Park, $1.4 million for Dublin Sports Ground All-Abilities Playground, $4 million for East Bay Regional Park for the McCosker Creek Restoration and Public Access Project, and $750k for a joint pilot project for Contra Costa and Alameda Counties to address illegal dumping.
