Thanksgiving just might be my favorite holiday of the year, a time where families all across our nation gathered at the dinner table to give thanks and reflect on blessings that have been bestowed on them over the past year. We also ate a lot of food — nearly 50 million turkeys worth — making this time of year an excellent opportunity to focus on how we can better reduce and recycle our food waste.

We live in beautiful region, and it’s critical that we come together to ensure we protect and improve it. That’s why I decided to serve in the state legislature in the first place – I wasn’t happy with the state that we’re on course to leave to our children and grandchildren. Across Sonoma County and across our state, people are looking for a good quality of life for their loved ones, and together, I truly believe we can leave future generations a better and more sustainable world.

This year marks the 95th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, a significant milestone in the evolution of civil rights in our nation’s history. While we have made progress over the past 95 years, women still do not receive equal pay for equal work. California can play an important role in correcting this disparity.

It’s graduation season, and many young people are celebrating their accomplishments and preparing for the next chapter in their lives. As I reflect on the promise of this generation and all they will accomplish, I also find myself concerned with the state they are inheriting. Pay equity is one of the fundamental issues we must address to provide our children a brighter future and a better state to call home.
