Congratulations to my friend and fellow San Fernando Tiger Alex Padilla on your appointment to the United States Senate. It’s truly a historic moment for the State of California to welcome its first Latino U.S. Senator.
Thank you California Governor Newsom for understanding that REPRESENTATION MATTERS. Proud to serve a community we both treasure, as Councilmember in the 7th District where you commenced your political career. I’m also proud to continue the legacy of homegrown leadership for the constituents in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. May the nation now see what our community has long known – the amazing things that kids from the 91331 can achieve.
