I am saddened by Friday's horrific and senseless stabbing death at Griffith Middle School in East Los Angeles. I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of this young man as they mourn his loss. It is chilling that this tragedy occurred at a school, which should always be a safe haven for our children. I hope that by working together, the community and our law enforcement can quickly solve this crime and bring justice to the grieving family and friends.

The project will widen Washington Blvd. to 6 lanes between Indiana St. and the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway, while improving traffic flow and safety, reducing delays, and enhancing pedestrian access. Congratulations to the City of Commerce, and to all parties involved in the launch of this remarkable and important project!

I'm proud to serve as a member of the newly formed Democratic Outreach and Engagement Task Force, which House Democrats launched today at a press conference. Our task force will play an important role in efforts to increase voter participation across our country. It is so important for us to educate our fellow Americans about why their votes matter, and how their lives are directly impacted by the decisions made by our elected leaders. That is why I convened city officials from throughout the 40th District last week to discuss ways we can promote voter participation and civic engagement in our communities. I look forward to continuing this important work in partnership with L.A. leaders and with my new Task Force colleagues in the House. Watch my remarks from today's press conference below: http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4524682/rep-roybal-allard-speaks-importance-voter-participation

It was a pleasure to welcome Downey Mayor Luis Marquez, Paramount Mayor Diane J. Martinez, and Walnut Mayor Nancy Renne Tragarz to my DC office. We discussed many issues of importance to the 40th District and the greater Los Angeles area. The mayors are in Washington to attend the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter Meeting.
