Past Events

Join us for our Annual District Office Open House on Tuesday, November 19th, for light snacks, refreshments and friendly discussion on the issues affecting our state and communities.  This event coincides with our annual Canned/Packaged Food, Blanket & Sock Drive!!

Canned food items collected will benefit Westside Food Bank which has served as the food bank warehouse for the Westside since 1981, distributing 4.5 million pounds of food annually to over 70 local social service agencies serving much of the 50th Assembly District.

Blankets and socks collected will benefit Daniel's Place, a project of Step Up on Second, created as a drop-in center for transitional age youth who are experiencing mental health conditions and who may or may not be experiencing homelessness, and today, remains steadfast in its efforts to promote early intervention and education in order to reduce the likelihood of the effects of a mental health issue becoming a persistent and disabling condition.

We hope you will consider bringing a donation of any non-perishable foods, blankets (new or gently used) or socks(new) with you to the event, but donations are not required. You can also drop items off at our office anytime before the event.

Please RSVP for the event below.  We look forward to seeing you!

Anyone can become a victim of a scam, but if you are 65 years or older, you are a scammer's prime target.  According to the FBI, senior citizens are most likely to have a "nest egg," to own their home, and/or to have excellent credit—all of which make them attractive to con artists.

Please join us for a FREE Senior Scam Stopper Seminar and FREE lunch to learn what you can do to avoid becoming a victim of a scam.

We hope you will join us Thursday, June 20, 2019, along with fellow Assembly District 50 residents and business owners for an opportunity to learn about the services the District Office can provide you and to hear about the work the Assemblymember is doing on your behalf in Sacramento.

Donations of new backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year are greatly appreciated, but not required. Your donation of a new backpack or new school supplies reduces the financial burden to families and increases student readiness, leading to better educational outcomes.
