I was recently glad to join local female labor leaders for a special, non-partisan briefing from the League of Women Voters about the state propositions on California’s ballot this year. I participated in the conversation and introduced the speakers. We know that information is power, especially at the ballot box. Thanks to this meeting, the labor leaders in attendance will be better able to inform our communities about how these propositions will impact our state and our neighborhoods.

Thanks to everyone who attended my Service Academy Workshop at the Downey City Library on Saturday! Downey Mayor Fernando Vasquez came by to welcome us. Attendees then heard from representatives from the service academies, including U.S. Military Academy Cadet Jonathan Yi (Class of 2017), from Downey; U.S. Naval Academy Midshipman First Class Jonathan Kim (Class of 2015), from L.A.’s Koreatown community; U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Gilbert Gonzales (Class of 2017), from Commerce; U.S. Coast Guard Academy Partner Dr. Kim Armstrong; and U.S. Air Force Admissions Liaison Officer Lt. Col. Robert Jayme. All of the representatives spoke about the requirements for admission to the service academies. In addition, the cadets and midshipman spoke about their academy experiences, and what motivated them to attend. The attendees also heard from Mr. and Mrs. Gonzales, the parents of Cadet Gonzales. To attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, you need a nomination from a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, a U.S. Senator, or the Vice President. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is the only academy that allows applicants to apply directly. For more information about applying to a U.S. Service Academy, please visit my website: http://roybal-allard.house.gov/constituentservices/serviceacademynominations.htm. ***Completed applications for a nomination must be submitted to my office by November 15, 2014, at 5:00 PM.***

5:04 p.m. today marks 25 years since the Loma Prieta quake struck northern California, costing dozens of lives and billions of dollars in damage. Today’s a day to remember those we lost, and to make sure we’re prepared for earthquakes and other natural disasters. Visit the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (http://www.calema.ca.gov) for tips on preparedness.
