33rd Congressional Council


Dear Neighbor,

In a strong democracy, communication and transparency are essential. That’s why I’d like to invite you to become a member of the 33rd Congressional Council, a group that will advise me on important issues affecting our community. As a member of the California Assembly, I created the AD47 People’s Council, which helped to highlight the needs of our community and allowed our constituents to access key decision makers in Sacramento. Now I would like to continue our efforts as a member of the House of Representatives by launching a new advisory council for the 33rd Congressional District.

Please join us for the inaugural meeting of the 33rd Congressional Council and help me take your voice to Washington D.C.
