Our Tribute to Veterans and Military Families is Saturday! The event features live music, food trucks, an ode to World War II veterans, and exhibitors offering wellness programs, history, and veteran and military family resources. Admission is free, so I hope to see you there!

Thank you to the San Marino City Club for inviting me to join you this evening to share about issues impacting this community, including my collaboration with the Board of Supervisors, discussions surrounding transportation and traffic, and great funding for parks.

Over 100 kids joined us for Bring Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, which offered real-time workplace experience to help them envision themselves as successful professionals. And who knows—we may have had a future county supervisor with us today!

Congratulations to Granada Hills Charter High School's Academic Decathlon team, who has won the national championships seven times in the last nine years! We're so proud of these brilliant and dedicated students. @GHCHS_UPDATES
