I’m honored to represent the working people of the 33rd District who drive California’s economy, from the Port of Long Beach to the transportation corridor that links California to the rest of the country. Please do not hesitate to contact my capitol or district office for assistance with state agencies or to voice your opinion about matters facing the legislature.
