A candlelight vigil will take place in Hanford this Friday. The event is nonpartisan and we are inviting various justice oriented nonprofits and organizations to come and participate.
Would you mind emailing this flyer to those that may be interested?
We are meeting at 7:30 pm at the Civic Auditorium near Superior Dairy in Hanford. I expect that the event will end around 9 pm.
There’s a lot happening in Washington, so I wanted to bring your attention to an issue that may not have the headlines, but is incredibly important to the people of CA-21.
The Trump Administration just proposed a new eligibility rule for the SNAP program which could see over 3 million Americans lose their food snaps benefits.
There’s no real way to sugar coat this one. These cuts would be an absolute disaster for California families — particularly in CA-21 where 24% of local households utilize SNAP to keep food on the table. In the Visalia-area of my district, 31,000 household use food stamps. That’s the highest rate of use in California and the eighth highest in the nation.
