Around the District

 

A Little Music

On Tuesday I toured the Little School of Music, a Royal Conservatory Music Development Program Founding School, in Santa Clarita. We spoke about the importance of music education programs in schools and how they’re teaching students to love and appreciate music while having fun.

Veteran Medal Presentation

Tuesday morning I attended Coffee for Vets at Crazy Otto’s Diner Avenue I, where I had the honor of presenting the Good Conduct and National Defense Service Medals to Pete Lopez. Thank you Mr. Lopez for your service to our country.

Thank you for your service Mr. Lopez


Engaging Engineers

After the Coffee I had the opportunity to speak to the students at the Lancaster University Center, where students in the Antelope Valley can obtain their B.S. degree in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering from California State University, Long Beach. We discussed a range of topics, including the Aeronautics Innovation Act, which lays out a comprehensive roadmap for American aerospace with the goal of developing aeronautics programs that can face the challenges of the 21st century. Thank you to Dr. Ken Santerelli for allowing me to speak to the students. Keep up the great work!

Explaining how aerospace engineers help the Antelope Valley thrive

Fighting for Small Business

Earlier this week I was presented the ‘Champion of Small Business’ award by the Small Business Investor Alliance. I am thankful for the recognition and I look forward to continuing our work with the Small Business Investor Alliance to ensure our locally owned businesses have the resources they need to thrive. Read more here.

Thank you to the mall Business Investor Alliance for your work

Disney Ranch Tour

On Wednesday I toured the Golden Oak Ranch (better known by Santa Claritians as the “Disney Ranch”). Steve and Lisa showed me around the property and explained the history behind the location. I also learned about their work in the community, including their efforts in assisting the USFS, LA County Fire, and local residents during the Sand Fire, and the vegetables they grow and donate to the local food bank.

Learning about Disney Ranch and its contribution to our local economy

Senior Center

After the tour we paid a visit to the SCV Senior Center, where we presented them with a new American flag in honor of their 40th Anniversary and answered questions about how our office can provide assistance with federal agencies like Social Security Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Chatting about how my office can help with Medicare benefits

Shooting Hoops and Giving Back

I spent Thursday afternoon touring the Boys and Girls Club of Simi Valley to see some of the great programs they put on for our community. Thanks for having me and for letting me play a little ball!

Great visit with the Boys & Girls Club of Simi ValleyAntelope Valley Fair

  1. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/01/08/donald-trump-i-will-get-rid-of-gun-free-zones-on-schools/ Does Steve Knight want guns in schools like Trump? Steve Knight has an A rating with the NRA so I guess it’s safe to say he and Trump agree on this one. 90% of Americans want gun reform, yet Steve Knight votes against his constituents to line his pockets with blood money. Shame on you Steve Knight!
