In our inaugural Assembly newsletter, I want to thank all of you for your support and counsel. As your new Assemblymember, I'm honored to serve you – whether to help you navigate state services, to champion issues in Sacramento that reflect our shared values, or to provide information on how legislation from Sacramento impacts San Francisco and California.
My first action in office was to introduce legislation that will help preserve and create much-needed housing for our lowest-income residents because affordable housing is one of my top priorities in Sacramento. You can read more about my bill in this newsletter. I'm grateful that Speaker Toni Atkins appointed me to be part of her leadership team as Assistant Speaker pro Tempore, which means I will preside over a number of Assembly floor sessions this year. I will also serve on the Assembly Budget Committee, Health Committee, Housing & Community Development Committee, Judiciary Committee, and Local Government Committee. I look forward to working with my new colleagues in the State Legislature on issues critical to all Californians.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns, through my website or by calling my district office at (415) 557-3013. As I did on the Board of Supervisors, I plan to communicate regularly through our newsletters, and appreciate your feedback, suggestions and announcements for future issues.
Assemblymember, 17th District
