Fundraiser at Bitzee Mama's a Huge Success!

Thanks to everyone who attended last night's fundraiser at Bitzee Mama's in the heart of Downtown Glendale. Our Host committee - Lydia Guzman, Sammy Chavira, Martin and Sylvia  Hernandez-Moreno, Frank Camacho, Martin Samaniego, Luis Schmidt, Danny Ortega, Pat Montro and Victor Hugo Rodriguez did a fabulous job.

The food provided by Lulu and Kristine of Bitzee-Mama's was terrific.

My campaign will continue to focus now, and when elected, on Preserving our Neighborhoods and Protecting our Future.
