This last Saturday morning, Assembly Member Ian Calderon hosted an event at Benton Middle School. The scope of the event was to engage the residents of La Mirada on issues they would like to see addressed on a state level, while also providing them with an information update about the affairs of our state. Approximately 30 community members showed up to the event and many posed challenging questions to the Assemblyman. The discussion focused mainly around school, transporation, and taxation issues. It was a well hosted event and those who attended got some good face to face time with Ian. I encouraged him to continue hosting community engagement events, so as to better understand the issues we face in our region.
