Newsletters

As we approach the fall, I write to update you on where we are legislatively.

This legislative session, I focused on issues most affecting our district: recovery, preparation and aid from natural disasters. I am proud to announce that all natural disaster legislation I introduced was signed into law by the Governor. Additionally, this year we were successful in getting a total of 16 measures signed into law- all with bipartisan support, related to business & technology; the environment & natural resources; education; and health & human services.

I hope you find the information in this newsletter informative. I look forward to seeing you in the district soon.

As the end of the summer approaches, I wanted to update you on what I have been working on in the district and in Sacramento.

My legislative priorities this year were focused on the most pressing issues facing our community. In 2017 and early 2018 our community was devastated by two natural disasters that took the lives of many of our community members creating a void that may never be filled.

Last month, our district was tested yet again when two wildfires sprang up in the grasslands of our region, but this time we were prepared. Cal OES, local firefighters, and emergency personnel were able to utilize pre-staged equipment to contain the fire before it could further spread. I was proud to have supported funding to ensure prestaging resources and it is my hope that through further legislation and community support, we can get on the forefront of the now year-round California fire season.

I am proud to call the 805 home. Despite the difficult times our community has faced, we are working hard to recover and rebuild together.

As always, if you need assistance with a state agency or if you would like to invite me to a community event, please do not hesitate to contact me at (805) 564-1649 or leave me a note here. For updates on my work in the Capitol and around the district, follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @AsmMoniqueLimon.

Our community has shown incredible resilience and bravery through these difficult past few months. Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that we face, I am inspired by how our community has come together in support of those in need—from the Coast Guard service members who pulled people out of the wreckage by helicopter, to the Spanish translator who continued to translate Thomas Fire updates at community meetings after her home burned down. The 805 continually amazes me and we truly are 805 Strong.

My team and I are doing everything in our power, through resource awareness, legislation and funding, to ensure that both the immediate and long-term needs will be met. It is in this vein that I want to share updates on work I am doing in the Capitol on your behalf, provide resources to assist in recovery and extend the assistance of my Assembly office. My team and I can help you navigate the many issues you or loved ones may be dealing with because of the Thomas Fire or the resulting mudslides. This includes helping with state agencies and departments who handle insurance, unemployment or taxes. We can be reached either at (805) 564-1649 or (805) 641-3700.

Dear Friend,

I hope you had a wonderful autumn and are preparing for a joyous holiday season.

2017 was successful on many fronts. In addition to the work we continue to do in neighborhoods throughout the 37th Assembly District, the governor signed nine of my bills into law, and they will go a long way toward making our communities safer and healthier. If you have not yet viewed the 2017 Accomplishments Report, I urge you to take a moment to check it out at my website.

Dear Friend,

The 2017 legislative session has come to a close, and I am proud to tell you about the very productive year we had in the California Legislature. My colleagues and I took on some of the biggest challenges facing California today—from climate change and college affordability to equal pay and housing. Nine of the bills I authored were signed by the governor, and one was adopted as a part of the State Budget. You can help with the process for next year by participating in the “There Oughta Be a Law” contest (more information below).

I want to thank each and every one who called, visited one of my offices, attended an event, or sent me a message regarding legislation or policy—your engagement in civic duty keeps me inspired, and has been invaluable in helping me make decisions on legislation. I take your remarks into consideration when I analyze bills that come before the California Assembly. Please continue to submit your comments via the contact section of my website.

Dear Friend,

Summer is here and the 2017 legislative session is past the half-way point. I am honored to work every day on your behalf, in both the Capitol and in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, to build healthy, safe and strong communities.
