Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are able to spend the day with family and friends. I am home with my 77 year-old mom and family with so much to be thankful for, including the opportunity to represent you in Congress for a second term.
Serving our families, children, and seniors in California’s 44th Congressional District is the privilege of a lifetime.
I am committed as ever to protecting your rights, improving your quality of life, and ensuring that our government works for all of us, not just the rich and powerful.
I also want to express my deepest appreciation to our first responders and firefighters who have been working on the front lines and battling the destructive California fires. Their selflessness and bravery is inspirational – a true example of dedication to public service. I will continue to pray for the families who have suffered and are impacted. During this time of uncertainty, we must come together as a community to put the pieces back together for the families who have suffered tremendous loss to their livelihoods.
On this Thanksgiving, let’s remember all of the reasons we have to be thankful, and all of the people that we are thankful for! I look forward to the work ahead and the lasting friendships and partnerships we will continue to create in the years ahead.
