Hollywood Family Resource Fair.pdfOn Saturday, August 5th, the Office of Assemblymember Richard Bloom, in partnership with the Youth Policy Institute, Central Hollywood Neighborhood Council, After-School All-Stars and Hollywood Hills West will be hosting a FREE Family Resource Fair at Yucca Park & Community Center.
The Hollywood Family Resource Fair is a great opportunity to interact with representatives from various non-profit and government organizations to learn about programs and services that may be helpful to you and your family and in some cases may reduce your family’s monthly expenses. Assemblymember Bloom's Office will distribute FREE backpacks and school supplies to local children to help prepare them for the upcoming school year. (Due to limited supplies, priority will be given to families who are the first to RSVP for the event).

This promises to be a great event for the whole family to enjoy. There will be an obstacle course, games to play and kids will learn about earthquake safety by experiencing a 5.7 magnitude earthquake in the County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s Shakey Quakey House!! Plus we will have a balloon artist and face painting!!

We look forward to meeting each of you and hearing any thoughts or concerns you may have on issues facing our state and local community.

Assemblymember Richard Bloom Open House School Supplies Drive

On July 26, 2017, my office will host our Annual Community Open House and School Supplies Drive at my district office in Santa Monica.

Join me, my district office staff, and fellow Assembly District 50 residents and business owners for a fun social event to learn more about the services my district office can provide you and to hear about the work I’m doing in Sacramento.

In coordination with the Youth Policy Institute, we will be collecting donations of new backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year. The purchase of new clothing and school supplies can be an overwhelming financial burden for any family, but lower-income families that are already struggling each month to provide for their families are particularly at risk. Your donation of a new backpack or new school supplies reduces this burden and increases student readiness, leading to better educational outcomes. Items collected will be distributed to students at our Hollywood Family Resource Fair.


Wednesday, July 26, 2017
4 – 7 p.m.

An appointment to a State Board or Commission by the Governor or Assembly Speaker can be a very rewarding experience and ensures your community has a voice in state policy.  As a member of a board or commission, you can influence public policy; bring attention to issues that you care about and help others understand why they are important; gain access to policymakers; learn about the political process; and serve as a role model for others in your community.  But how does one find out about the various boards and commissions?  What qualifications or expertise is needed?  Is there an application to complete? What is the appointment process?

Few know the answers to those questions which is why I have partnered with the Office of Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, the Office of the Governor, and the City of West Hollywood in presenting a seminar entitled “Taking the Lead – Get Appointed to a California State Commission or Board” in conjunction with the City’s annual Women’s Leadership Conference & Network.

Please join me for this FREE hour-long seminar which will be conducted by Mona Pasquil, Appointments Secretary in the Office of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., and Nikki Johnson, Senior Advisor to the Speaker on Appointments in the Office of Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. The two will explain the application process for seeking an appointment from either the Governor or Assembly Speaker. Come prepared with questions and be the first to learn about current vacancies.
