Stepping Up During the Fire

On August 24 I presented the Golden Oak Ranch with a special congressional certificate in recognition of all their efforts in the Sand Fire. During the fire, they let the community use their property as a base camp for the aerial firefight and allowed usage of their water wells, among other efforts. Thank you Golden Oak Ranch for your contribution to the community!

Santa Clarita Studios

On Friday afternoon I had the opportunity to tour Santa Clarita Studios with Mike, President, and Richard, VP. We spoke about the entertainment industry, its effect on California’s economy, and how important tax credits are to keep the industry here in Southern California. I also received a special look at the sound stages hosting a buzzed about TV show, as well as some other shows and movies to look forward too.
