(Pasadena) — For fourteen years, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has welcomed the public to his street for a fun day of constituent services and conversation on issues facing the community — set against the backdrop of a monumental block party. From the JPL Mars Rover, to the giant dragon slide, to the art table hosted by the Armory Center, it was an uplifting and informative day. More than 40 state and local agencies were on hand to help residents of the 41st Assembly District. Learn more about this Pasadena-area tradition, broadened to the whole 41st District in this Assembly Access video.
It's that time of year again. Please join me for our 16th Annual Block Party and Community Resource Fair this Saturday, August 8.
Attendees can enjoy complimentary hot dogs and lemonade while getting job information and other resources. School kids can receive a free back-to-school backpack, while supplies last. There will be live music, a classic car show, a puppet show, arts and crafts for kids and much more.
Come discuss legislative and community issues at this great event. Information on state and local resources that may be of value to you and your family will also be available.
This Fourth of July marks the 239th anniversary of our nation’s founding. When we gather with family and friends to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, we pay tribute to the document that paved the way for a new nation and a new way of life.
This Saturday there will be parades and floats and costumes and games. I hope you will join me to celebrate our nation’s birth at these local events:
