Protecting seniors from abuse

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) My Assembly Bill 728 will not allow convictions of elder/dependent adult abuse to be eligible for “expungement”. An expungement proceeding is designed to have the records of a prior conviction destroyed, eliminated or sealed. While current law allows expungement of criminal records under certain circumstances, elder abuse should not be […]

Rebuilding our transportation infrastructure

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) Last week I joined my Assembly Republican colleagues to introduce the Traffic Relief and Road Improvement Act (TRRIP). Unlike other proposals, our plan will restore and enhance California’s transportation infrastructure, without raising taxes! Since the 1970s our population has almost doubled, but our highway system has not kept pace. Californians pay […]

Julie Reeder Publisher There has been constant controversy over the new Bonsall High School lately, before and after the election, and while it’s inconvenient, I believe it’s healthy for the community. There are obvious issues and concerns for neighbors as it relates to traffic, noise, space, etc. It’s too bad that it has to cost […]

Hooking kids on fishing

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) My new Assembly Bill 478 will raise the age requirement for the purchase of fishing licenses by two years. By raising the age from 16 to 18 years, we will expose larger numbers of California’s youth to nature, expand their life experiences and perhaps, their futures. This is especially important […]

A ‘Thank You’ to angels and heroes

I would like to thank everyone that rallied up as one to search for and recover Roland Phillips and Phillip Campbell, the two that died when their car was swept off of a flooded roadway in Rainbow during the flash floods last month. I am the widow of Roland and legal guardian of Phillip, the […]
