Assembly Member Holden is seeking nominations to honor the 41st Assembly District’s 2016 Veteran of the Year. The program has been developed to honor a Veteran from the 41st District whose community service and work have made a positive impact. The 41st Assembly District includes Altadena, Claremont, La Verne, Monrovia, Pasadena, San Dimas, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena, Upland, and portions of Mt. Baldy and Rancho Cucamonga.

In order to qualify, the Veteran must reside or perform community service within the 41st Assembly District. The Veteran may be nominated by a resident or representative from a school, private and non-profit organization, municipality, chamber of commerce, and/or any other organization within the 41st Assembly District (no self-nominations please). One Veteran will be selected and recognized in Sacramento at a recognition ceremony in June 2016.

Please think about a Veteran who is positively contributing to the community. Deadline is March 24, 2016. For more information, please contact Matthew Lyons at Matthew.Lyons@asm.ca.gov or (909) 624-7876.
