News From the 5th District

 Twitter

The @CaliforniaNP is an incredible organization dedicated to supporting those who do life-saving work in our communities. I share their passion for service and commitment to bridging the gaps in our health care system. It was a treat to meet their Pasadena chapter!

We serve our constituents best when we share our diverse perspectives. Thank you to the @SanGabrielCity council and staff for sitting down with me to talk about transportation, public safety, and housing issues that affect our residents.

Started by a Gold Star father with a keen awareness of the challenges veterans face and a passion to help them, Rojo's Better Life Center connects those who’ve served with the resources they deserve.

Appointed by two Fifth District supervisors, Z. Greg Kahwajian served as a valued member of the Civil Service Commission for 21 years. We are immensely grateful for his integrity, leadership, and keen eye, which made our county more efficient and effective.

The Resilience Scholarship sheds light on the incredible work the women in our communities are doing to make L.A. County better and brighter. Recognizing their time and talents with this scholarship equips them with an extra tool to pursue their career dreams.

Florida Flashback Friday: This week, I joined a delegation of California officials for an up-close look at the Virgin Trains USA operations in Florida. This is the first privately constructed, operated, and maintained intercity rail system built in over 100 years. The system is illustrative of what the company intends to construct between Las Vegas and Victorville in the coming months. The High Desert Corridor, a North Los Angeles County priority project, will be the way we'll connect with the Virgin Trains project. Ultimately, this will bring a first-ever high speed train connection between Los Angeles and Las Vegas! ... See MoreSee Less
