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.
WHAT: 33rd Congressional Council
WHEN: Saturday, June 4th from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: Wilton Place Elementary School, 745 South Wilton Place, LA 90005 map
I’ve sent you this invitation because I feel your work in our community plays an important role and your voice should be heard in Washington.
How Can I Help? Share This With Our Community!
Do you know someone who would be a great member of our Council? Tell them! Our sucess is dependent upon participation from our community, so I hope you’ll take a moment and share this with friends, family and neighbors.

Do you feel like you don’t really know what’s going on with your Federal government in Washington, DC? What about your local Congressional District (CD33)? Or what your local Congressmember (Rep. Karen Bass) is doing for your community, as well as our country?
The Democratic Party is looking for volunteers to help them with their “get out the vote” campaign for this November’s elections… and they have a pretty sweet deal for students. You can get credit from school’s like USC for volunteering your time – plus it’s great experience for your resumes! They’ll provide letters to future employers, and other perks for students as well. Their office is just down Washington Blvd., near Western.See the attached document for further details. (Really anyone can volunteer – so if you’re interested, contact your MINC rep – Michael Sonntag – or the numbers on the flyers for more information.)
