Youth Constituent Visitors
Wednesday in DC Noah and Emily, both constituents, visited my office. We talked about ways to help our veterans and how young people can get involved in the government process. I talked to them about the importance of serving our community and the role I play as their Member of Congress. They are both very bright and represent the youth of our district well!

Thanks for stopping by my office!

Ippolito Family Visit
It was great having the Ippolito family visit my DC office today from Santa Clarita. They were full of enthusiasm and ready for their adventures in our Nation’s capital. Their daughter has been choosing themes for each day of their vacation and today’s theme, as you can tell by their t-shirts, was Star Wars day! I hope you enjoy your vacation and as Obi Wan once said, "Remember...the Force will be with you, always."
