Homelessness Discussion 101 - Fullerton

Friday, June 21, 2019

The California state auditor today reported that the CSU has been funneling hundreds of millions to accounts outside of the State Treasury, disregarded state laws, and used millions of dollars in revenue from campus parking permit fees to fund projects unrelated to the CSU parking program. Through the audit, it was discovered that the surplus from these fees were hidden in separate accounts from public and state overview.

“Unfortunately, the state auditor has again uncovered violations and waste that occur when we allow CSU to operate its campuses without adequate state oversight or accountability,” said Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva. “The legislature must enact measures to ensure state funds cannot be hidden in outside accounts and are being spent in the best interests of students.”

Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva's Legislation to Create OC Veterans Cemetery Heads to Senate

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

A wonderful piece shared by CAL Matters discussing how the new rules in California Assembly has led to a mass censorship and limited the hearing of bills.

The public deserves to have their voices and legislative ideas heard. For the sake of our constituents and all Californians, we should not be censoring what comes before the Legislature.

This path is sure to lead us down a dark road that is anything but democratic.

SACRAMENTO – Today, Governor Gavin Newson announced his adoption of Orange County Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva’s proposal that seeks to provide options at the State’s Fairview Developmental Center, for Orange County’s homeless.

To address the immediate crisis of homelessness and severe medically ill Orange County residents, the Governor has included authorization to move forward to house and treat approximately 200 OC residents who have no shelter, security or medical treatment.

Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva, author of Assembly Bill 1295, which is reflected in the Governor’s budget proposal, was humbled and quick to praise the Governor’s support for the consideration of the Fairview state property for Orange County’s neediest and despairing residents.  The Assemblywoman stated that, “These men and women are our hidden neighbors; they come from all over Orange County, and need shelter and medical care, in order to find stability and hope.”
