District Newsletter: November 2023

Assemblymember Rubio

Greetings everyone,

It is my pleasure to represent the 48th Assembly District in the California State Legislature. This term will serve as my 7th year as a Legislator in the California State Assembly. It is an honor to serve over 498,000 residents in our district and collaborate with nine cities in the San Gabriel Valley. I am excited to share our 2023 November Newsletter and ensure our communities stay up-to-date with state-related matters.

Community Engagement

Assemblywoman Rubio Provides Thousands of Turkeys to Families in the District

I was proud to host my seventh annual AD 48 Operation Gobble Drive-Thru Turkey & Food Giveaway in partnership with Foothill Unity Center, Charter Oak Unified School District, City of Covina, Covina Police Department, Jan's Towing Inc., and AAA Auto Club Enterprises. Hundreds of residents, local leaders, and students from our high schools dedicated their time to volunteering for this amazing cause.

Over the years, this event has expanded due to the need in our community. I am grateful to continue spreading holiday cheer to our families and contributing towards a greater quality of life for our neighbors. Thank you to our sponsors and everyone who lent a helping hand.

It was a pleasure to be recognized by the Occupational Therapy Association of California as their Vision Awardee!

Thank you to the association for this thoughtful commemoration. I look forward to working with them in the future.
