Breakfast Club with California's State Controller Betty Yee
This morning our office hosted our Breakfast Club with California State Controller Betty Yee. Events such as breakfast club enable our state legislators and state representatives an opportunity to speak with our constituents directly and address their concerns. I was honored to share the stage with State Controller Betty Yee.
