My first year in the State Senate was a productive and exciting one.
A highlight was traveling to Glasgow, Scotland for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP26. It was a great honor to represent California and share with attendees, including media, what we’re doing in California to address climate change and what our key challenges are. I also had an opportunity to tour an offshore wind farm, where lessons learned can be applied to plans for wind farms off the California coast. Prior to leaving for the UN Climate Change Conference, I was pleased that Governor Newsom signed all 10 of the bills I authored that made it to his desk this year.
I’ve also had the opportunity to spend a lot of time in the beautiful and diverse 17th District, where I’ve been meeting with community members and local leaders to discuss a wide range of issues, including higher education, transportation, firefighting, libraries, police reform, groundwater sustainability, agriculture, affordable housing and much more.
I look forward to continuing to work hard for our communities. Thank you for your continued support. It means a lot to me.
