Around the District

Another Successful Townhall
On Thursday I hosted our third in-person townhall for this year.  This one was held in Santa Clarita.  I appreciated the opportunity to talk with everyone who came and for the chance to listen to your thoughts on a wide-range of issues and concerns.

Cutting Edge Treatment
I visited AEGIS Treatment Center in Simi Valley which provides comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, outcomes-based treatment for opioid addicted patients. The work these medical professionals do is inspirational and beneficial to our community, especially those suffering from addiction and the families who care about their recovery.

Protecting Mental Health Treatment
I also met with members of the Simi Valley medical community to discuss mental health concerns with our youth. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to discuss this important topic. Keeping our children safe and taken care of is every parent’s #1 priority.

Lunch with the Vets

I was honored to have lunch with a great group of veterans in Simi Valley. Along with hearing some of their wonderful stories, we discussed the 8 new veterans bills that Congress passed recently.

Meeting with Simi's Bright Young Minds
One Wednesday I visited Simi Valley High School to see their Amgen Biotech Experience that is part of their Biotechnology Pathway. I watched these amazing young people perform at the 5 lab stations that start with the Basic Biotech Lab Skills up to the Protein Purification. This program brings real world applications and experiences to students in the classroom to inspire the next generation of innovators. As a member of the Science, Space and Technology Committee I am always thrilled to see the students in my district excel in these subjects and look forward to seeing what remarkable things they will be doing in a few years!

Around the Capitol

Family Vacation to D.C.
On Thursday, the Quevedo family from Santa Clarita stopped by my office to meet with my staff and take a tour of the Capitol. It was their children’s first visit to Washington, D.C. I hope you enjoyed your tour and look forward to seeing you again here someday soon! Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to the Fleet!
Congratulations to first class aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford and its crew on its successful delivery to the U.S. Navy today! The aircraft carrier has been delivered following its acceptance trials and is the Navy’s newest, most advanced warship.

A Visit from Local "Spellebrities"

My staff had the chance to meet the Bigham and Yago families from Santa Clarita. They were in Washington because their daughters are finalists in the Scripps National Spelling Bee “Spellebrity” Video Contest. They made a video about the importance of reading and learning! Best of luck to the three of you in the Spellebrity contest!
