Pasadena-area State Assemblymember Chris Holden will look ahead to next year in the California Legislature before the Rotary Club of Pasadena on Wednesday, December 12, during the Club’s weekly meeting at the University Club of Pasadena.
The luncheon meeting is open to the public and no reservation is required.
Holden will be introduced by Diana Peterson-More and will speak about the California legislative outlook for 2019.
The Assemblymember brings to the state legislature a lifetime of experience in public service and business gained during his many years on the Pasadena City Council and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority.
Holden was first elected in 2012 to represent the 41st Assembly District, which extends from Pasadena in the West to Upland in the East, and includes the communities of Altadena, Claremont, La Verne, Monrovia, Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas, Sierra Madre, and South Pasadena.
He currently chairs the Assembly Committee on Utilities and Energy and the Select Committee on Regional Transportation Solutions.
Throughout his time in the legislature, he has worked to grow the district’s economy, protect the environment, strengthen infrastructure, and support working families.
This year, Holden established a $50 million dollar increase in the state budget for developmental disability services for the benefit of individuals and families living with disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and intellectual disabilities.
Holden will also discuss his legislative achievements, and the most significant legislation signed into the law this year.
Buffet lunch is $33 per person and complimentary valet parking is available.
