FULLERTON, CA— Today 65th District Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva released the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s continued statements that seem to support anti-American groups like the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis:

“It seems every day that President Donald Trump drags the political discourse in this country (and with it the esteem of the presidency) to a new low. Please, Mr. Trump, find the good grace to cease giving aid and comfort to hateful, repugnant racist people through your words and apologize to the American people for your actions surrounding the people and events that took place in Charlottesville.

“We need our president to help heal the moral wounds of our country, not one that actively rips its stitches out. Please start showing that you understand that message.”

(SACRAMENTO) –Assembly Bill 690 (AB 690) by Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Orange County) was signed into law, by Governor Jerry Brown. AB 690 requires Home Owner Associations (HOAs) to deliver, within the annual budget report, an itemized estimate of fees that may be charged by a professional management company for documents necessary to facilitate a real estate transaction. This bill would also require a disclosure on whether the manager receives a referral fee from third parties for distributing required documents.

“I authored this law to help unit owners understand costs associated with the transfer of their homes, and to ensure all parties involved have the tools necessary to make informed decisions,” said Quirk-Silva. “This law makes sure there's more transparency in the process of transferring property, and that there aren't additional fees that are added on or excessive fees for the disclosure documents.”
