Join me in Supporting the End Hunger Yolo Capital Campaign

Have you ever gone to bed hungry? Wondered where you will get your next meal? Watched your parent struggle to stretch a meal to feed a household of hungry stomachs? The State of California is the sixth largest economy in the world. The Agriculture and Food industry in Sacramento Region generates more than $7.2 billion in direct economic impact in production, distribution, processing, and support activities.

Help Support SB 54, the California Values Act

Friends, I’ve asked the Board of Supervisors to adopt a support position at our September 12th Board Meeting for Senate Bill 54 (SB 54), the California Values Act. The Federal Administration’s decision this week to discontinue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in six months created a need to reach out to individuals affected by this action. Some are helping with DACA renewal paperwork. Others are offering emotional support. I feel the need to advocate for continuation of the DACA program and other supportive policies.
