Before we wind down for the holidays, I want to wish you all an early Merry Christmas. For families across the nation, it has been a tough year. After a rollercoaster of soaring prices, gas shortages and supply chain disruptions making it hard to get food on the table or gifts under the tree, I hope everyone can find peace this Christmas. In our district alone we have withstood yet another fire season filled with devastation. These hardships unite us, and I look forward to continuing to rebuild and make our home stronger.
Today and into the new year, I hope that we can find relief from the hardships faced this year, celebrate with friends and family and find time to give thanks for our blessings. This Christmas I rejoice in the reason for the season: the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. I am thankful to spend time with my loved ones and for our service members and law enforcement who keep us safe at home and abroad. I am grateful to live in a country that grants us unalienable rights and freedoms. As snow continues to fall across the north state, I wish all who are traveling this holiday season a safe journey.
From my family, my team, and myself, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It is an honor to continue serving you and California’s first district.
