During the San Gabriel Valley Housing and Homelessness Summit, we will discuss the promise of Measure H, which created a one-quarter of a cent sales tax to generate funds for homeless services and short-term housing. Not to mention, it will raise approximately $355 million a year over the next 10 years for Los Angeles County to fund services for homelessness prevention, mental health care, job training, and non-profit homeless service providers.

A team of expert panelists, stemming from diverse backgrounds will chime in with the importance of the Measure H policy.

  • Scott Chamberlain, San Gabriel Valley Consortium on Homelessness
  • Jan Cicco, San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments

  • and a representative from Union Station Homeless Services

In addition, a legislative update on current and statewide issues that affect San Gabriel Valley will be presented.

This event is sponsored by the San Gabriel Valley Consortium on Homelessness in partnership with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments.

Please join me, and your neighbors, for a Wildfire Town Hall on Saturday, April 27 at the Mt. Baldy Joint Elementary School. 

The biological diversity of the San Gabriel Valley, especially Mt. Baldy, makes it one of the most alluring places to live in Los Angeles County. Unfortunately, the region is severely prone to destructive wildfires with limited escape routes. That's why I am bringing experts to discuss:

  • How residents can protect their homes from wildfires.
  • How to navigate fire insurance.
  • How to be prepared for evacuation.

Our expert panelists include:

  • Daryl Osby, Fire Chief for the Los Angeles County Fire Department
  • Donald W. Trapp, Interim Fire Chief for the San Bernardino Fire Department
  • Representative from the California Office of Emergency Services
  • Representative from the California Department of Insurance
