Relief from long waits at the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is on the way. Starting this month, forty field offices throughout the state will now offer Saturday service, including the San Francisco location at 1377 Fell Street.
In releasing his state budget revision last week, Governor Brown proposed to allocate $250 million in emergency funding to help cities and counties address homelessness, which has reached crisis levels in California.
Since I was elected to represent you in the State Assembly five years ago, I have prioritized making state government more accessible to those it serves. Every year during budget season, I have hosted an interactive budget town hall powered by Next 10, a local non-profit organization. These town halls give you an opportunity to voice your budget priorities and understand how spending decisions are made. As I enter my third budget season as the Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, I want to hear from you, my constituents.

Bikes will be available to borrow.

On any given night, more than 1,300 San Francisco youth don’t have a safe place to call home. This is unacceptable. I was inspired to champion the effort to earmark $10 million in the state budget to get California’s homeless youth off the streets and succeeded in getting the funding.
