Latino Business Alliance
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to speak with the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber Latino Business Alliance. I updated them on some of my bills, our Congressional Small Business Conference & Expo, and what legislation we hope to see in Congress through September.

Local Support from Ventura County 
We are very excited that the County of Ventura voted unanimously to support our St. Francis Dam Disaster Memorial & Monument last week! The victims of the St. Francis Dam Disaster deserve to be memorialized. I am very pleased that the Ventura County Board of Supervisors is joining me in this effort and I look forward to working with my colleagues in the U.S. Senate to ensure that the monument becomes a reality.

State of the City
It was a packed house Tuesday to hear Mayor Jim Ledford give the State of the City Address at the Antelope Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Lunch. Lots of great things happening in the Antelope Valley!
