Welcome to my legislative website. It is an honor to have this opportunity to serve my community. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns that you may have with the district—or with your state government.
There have been an estimated 4,500 publicly disclosed data breaches in the United States since 2005, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, with many more undoubtedly unreported. With so many opportunities for cyber criminals to gain access to personal information about you and your family, the dangers of fraud and identity theft have never been more real.
To help build awareness of these threats and how to protect against them, California will celebrate Data Privacy Day on January 28th - an international effort to empower individuals to take action to control their 'digital footprint' and protect their data and their privacy. And key to taking action is knowing what to watch out for and what you can do to protect yourself.

Sacramento, CA - The California Legislative Black Caucus calls for peaceful protests after an unusual nighttime announcement of the Ferguson Grand Jury decision not to indict Officer Wilson for fatally shooting unarmed teenager, Michael Brown.
“Let us channel our feelings in a positive manner to bring about change in a meaningful and peaceful way so that the life of this young man was not in vain,” states Senator Holly Mitchell, Chair of the CLBC.
“In the spirit of peace and harmony, let nonviolence prevail, let’s link our hearts and our minds by channeling the spirit of Martin Luther King, who believed that “Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”
Violence and destruction of private property will not achieve anything but only feed the legacy of racism and distrust that permeates our Nation. Let us duplicate instead the legacy of those who marched in peace and harmony in Selma and work together as a community to bring about meaningful criminal justice reform.
