Around the District
A Quick Note
Thank you for subscribing to Knight Vision. As you may know, we are now publishing this newsletter once a week so that you can stay up to date on what is going on in California’s 25th Congressional District and in Washington, D.C. Some of you might have received last week’s edition twice or later than expected. I would like to apologize for any inconvenience that this might have caused. We experienced technical difficulties, but the issue has been resolved and we do not expect similar occurrences in the future. 

National Night Out
We had a fun time at National Night Out in Palmdale last Tuesday. Thank you to the City of Palmdale, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s and Fire Departments, and everyone else who made this a great event.
