Congratulations to everyone who participated in this weekend’s National Fantasy Rodeo Barrel Race and Futurity at Diamond Bar Arena — a great event in Ceres which brings in more than a thousand people each year. Had an awesome time meeting contestants and watching the barrel races.

UDW County Provider Appreciation Dinner

UDW/AFSCME 3930 and UDW Home Care Providers Union members play an extremely important role in communities throughout California and the country, ensuring that our family members and neighbors in need of care can receive that care with dignity and at home around loved ones. Thank you for inviting me to join you at this year’s Merced County Provider Appreciation Dinner.

A special shoutout to UDW member and community member Astrid Zuniga for her successful efforts this year to pass legislation ensuring law enforcement has access to information necessary to communicate with individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities — congratulations!
