Dear Friend,

Great news! My bill to ban corporate-owned single-family homes passed the State Assembly. AB 2584 will give families a better opportunity to buy their first home. If someone’s dream is to be a homeowner, then they should have a fair opportunity to achieve that goal. The bill will protect the limited stock of for-sale homes by banning large corporations that own more than 1,000 single-family homes from purchasing additional single-family properties.

Dear Friend,

It is my pleasure to invite you to my upcoming in-person Community Office Hours on Thursday, June 6, which is rescheduled from May 30. I hope to connect with you one-on-one regarding issues most important to you.

Community Office Hours is a great opportunity to discuss any bill ideas you have, and my legislative priorities at the State Assembly. My staff and I can also help you with issues related to state departments, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Employment Development Department.

Dear Friend,

I’m excited to invite you to Assembly District 24’s inaugural Youth Art Showcase on Saturday, May 18! My office will be featuring the artwork of students K-12 that illustrates the theme “A Home for Everyone.” During the event, I will be recognizing participants for their involvement and announcing the top submissions of the contest.

Dear Friend,

We recently heard from a fifth grader about her personal story on the harms of anti-aging products. Like many kids, Scarlett Goddard-Strahan enjoys spending her free time watching videos with her friends. After hearing glowing reviews of various skincare products, the 10-year-old sought out products advertised as anti-wrinkling and brightening.

Dear Friend,

The Assembly District 24 Youth Art Showcase is just around the corner! In partnership with the California State Library, it is my pleasure to invite students K-12 to participate in our Youth Art Contest, with the theme “A Home for Everyone.” Housing is a human right, and everyone should be able to live, play, and work in their hometowns. Submitted artwork will be judged on how it conveys concepts that illustrate "a home for everyone."

Dear Friend,

When I was elected to office, I realized that we were missing a crucial tool — namely social housing — to address California’s housing crisis. By creating publicly-led housing developments, we can provide affordable and financially self-sustaining homes for all.

Dear Friend,

I’m excited about what we can achieve together this year. I’ve introduced a series of bills to tackle the housing crisis, from creating social housing for all to protecting homeownership opportunities and tenants' rights. Beyond housing, my legislation will help promote public health, workers’ rights, the well-being of LGBTQ+ community members and more. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on our progress, and here are some of the major bills I’ve introduced:

AB 2881 - The Social Housing Act 

Dear Friend,

Happy New Year! Our office is looking forward to the 2024 district events that are in the works. One of those events is the Unsung Heroes celebration in March. It’ll be a great occasion to recognize the hard work of our community members, and I’m inviting you to nominate an unsung hero of Assembly District 24 — an individual or organization whose dedication to making our district a better place may have gone unnoticed.

Dear Friend,

I hope you're doing well. November was a month filled with multicultural celebrations. Traditions like Diwali and Thanksgiving brought community members of various faiths and backgrounds together. As we gathered for these celebrations, I was reminded of the great diversity of my district, and why I'm so passionate about representing my community as your State Assemblymember.

Dear Friend,

I'm proud to see that the Governor has signed 11 of my bills, a culmination of my office's hard work over the course of this legislative year. As we continue to build on our past legislative successes, our bills will bring meaningful impacts to California's traffic fatalities, housing crisis, environmental inequalities, and beyond.

Dear Friend,

It's been a productive month as we worked to move our legislation through the final steps in the State Legislature. This year, 12 of our bills were passed through the legislature and sent to the Governor's desk — legislation that helps advance housing, traffic safety, environmental justice, and more in California. The deadline for the Governor to sign or veto bills is approaching, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates!
 



Capitol Corner

Dear Friend,

Great news! The Social Housing Act, AB 309, was passed in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Our social housing legislation has made it the furthest any social housing bill has ever moved in the State Legislature. I’ve been pushing for social housing legislation since I first came into office three years ago. Our vision is to bring the paradigm shift of providing housing as a universal human right in California, just as we do for our schools and roads.

Dear Friend,

I’m proud to announce that the state has dedicated millions in the 2023-2024 budget for our district. The budget, which was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom last month, allocates $10.1 million to the cities of Fremont, Newark and Milpitas for education, transit, business development, services for unhoused individuals and more. This is a big win for our district, and in the meantime, our legislative package continues to make headway in the state legislature.
