Father's Day Message
Yesterday we celebrated the men in our lives who play huge roles in shaping who we all are today. My father has been an inspiration and guide to my daily life; especially in my own role as a father to my two sons. The lessons we all learn from our fathers create a glimpse of how we learn and grow within our communities for the future. Thank you to all of the fathers in our lives. I hope you had a wonderful day!
Happy Father's Day!

Santa Clarita Open Space Ceremony
June 15 my staff presented a certificate to the City of Santa Clarita congratulating them on the acquisition of 240 acres of land retained for open space. This plot of land connects to the 302-acre property, Gateway Ranch, and has been added to the City’s Open Space Preservation District, which restricts it from future development indefinitely. Preserving our land and all its contained wildlife is an important part of preserving our community’s heritage.
