2022 Small Business of the Year
This month, we recognized Taqueria Las Vegas (with locations in both Milpitas and Fremont) as our Assembly District's 2022 Business of the Year! Established in 2003 by Francisco and Jesus Rodriguez, brothers that emphasize the importance of family, Taqueria Las Vegas prides itself on providing friendly service to everyone. A pillar of our community in their 19 years of service, they have always been involved in our community in various ways, including: fundraisers for our local schools, hosting yearly field trips for our high school Spanish and AVID classes, football and basketball teams end of year banquets, catering family events, high school reunions, church celebrations, nonprofit events, and feeding the unhoused. I'm grateful for all the work they do in our community!
Finally, I wanted to let you know that BART is celebrating its 50 year anniversary next month, and to commemorate, they're reducing fares by 50% for the entire month of September!
Yours in Service,
Assemblymember, 25th District
