When I was elected to represent the State Senate four years ago, the mission was simple – serve the people of the Valley.
As life became more challenging during the pandemic, the Valley came together, because that’s what we do when times are hard. I was proud to deliver tax refunds, grants for small business, rental relief and mortgage assistance to hundreds of thousands of Valley families hurt by the pandemic.
I want to continue the important work we have started together which includes more funding for clean and reliable water supplies and policies to improve healthcare, provide quality education, strengthen our local economy and to fight crime in our neighborhoods.
There is still much work to do. I’d appreciate your support in my re-election for State Senate.
Contaminated water has long plagued California’s Southern Central Valley, a region home to many farmworkers. SB 974, a bill by Senator Melissa Hurtado, seeks to provide safe drinking water by exempting small disadvantaged communities from certain CEQA provisions.
