Visiting Our Allies

Last week I traveled to Eastern Europe with a few of my colleagues on the House Armed Services Committee to meet with leaders in the region to discuss United States’ role in the area and to show support for the allies there. We stopped in Latvia, Romania, Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine—many of which are members of the North Atlantic Trade Organization (NATO) and are currently affected by ongoing Russian military aggression. 

While there, I visited several significant sites, including the Warsaw Uprising Museum in Poland and the Holodomor Monument which is a memorial for the Soviet genocide that occurred in Ukraine in 1932. I also had the honor of meeting with Californian service members at the Mihail Kogălniceanu Airbase in Romania to discuss the current situation there from a “boots on the ground” perspective. As an Army veteran who was stationed in Europe during the Cold War, I am grateful that I could take part in this mission, and I look forward to using the information we gathered to strengthen our strategy in the region moving forward.”

Aerospace Updates
Our community is home to some of the best aerospace manufacturing sites in the world. During my week in the district I visited several of them, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman and Aerojet Rocketdyne. I took tours of their facilities, spoke with employees, and got feedback as to what the aerospace community in our district needs from Congress in order to function best. I also met with the Antelope Valley Board of Trade's AEROCOMM Committee to talk with our region's aerospace industry leaders. As a member of the Committees on Armed Services and Science, Space and Technology, as well as a resident of the “Aerospace Valley,” I am always interested in finding ways to optimize the industry’s performance and ensure they continue to provide quality jobs to the people in our community.

Transportation Fixation
This was a big week for the Antelope Valley Transit Authority. On April 9th, they celebrated “National Stand Up For Transportation Day” in Palmdale, where I spoke about the importance of public transportation and infrastructure. On April 10th, they announced the implementation of a pilot program that will place digital advertisements on some AVTA buses. I was particularly proud of this as the program was authorized by legislation I carried when I was a State Senator last year.
