Representing the 27th District
A town hall meeting on Covered California, the marketplace for health care information and help, will take place Nov. 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, 150 E. San Fernando St.
The meeting is hosted by Assemblywoman Nora Campos with Community Health Partnership, Daughters of Charity Health System and Gardner Health Services.
SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Nora Campos, D-San Jose, applauded the news that state revenues continue to come in above expectations:
“A surplus is great news. Californians should be thanked for investing in our schools, and it’s fitting that our schools will benefit the most. I also will be working with my colleagues to begin reinvesting in job creation programs to address our chronic unemployment problem.”
The 27th Assembly District includes roughly half of the City of San Jose in Santa Clara County – the tenth largest city in the nation, and third largest in California. Assemblymember Campos served as a San Jose City Councilwoman before she was elected to the Assembly in 2010.
San Jose’s McDonnell Hall: a modest building with deep history
SACRAMENTO – McDonnell Hall, a modest building where Cesar Chavez got his start as the leader of the farmworker labor movement, was granted state historical landmark status Friday by the State Historical Resource Commission on a unanimous vote.
Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Nora Campos, D-San Jose, said the time has come for recognition. She initially authored Assembly Joint Resolution 16 in 2011 urging federal, state and local historical designation of McDonnell Hall.
Governor Jerry Brown recently signed three bills by Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Nora Campos, D-San Jose, to protect victims of domestic violence.

Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Now that the 2013 legislative year has ended, I am pleased to report that five of my bills have been signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, and two others are on the way to his desk.
It’s been a productive year and I continue to use my position as Speaker pro Tem to serve San Jose.

Much progress, but more needed to be done
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – “We’ve come a long way since Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech – look at the people of color who are emerging as leaders around our state and country.
But 50 years after the March on Washington and Dr. King’s speech, we still dream that equal opportunity is for all in fair wages, a good education and equal treatment under the law. We still dream that racial or ethnic profiling will one day end. We still dream that racial tensions – even those under the surface – will be a thing of the past. We still dream that we will see an end to violence that is often born in economic inequity and despair.
Many of us are still climbing the mountain, and we are a long way from the top. But, we can never end striving to be that nation where children of all races and creeds can hold hands as sisters and brothers to point the way to a fairer, more just future.”
IN THIS ISSUE:
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
The Legislature is in the final six weeks of the 2013 legislative year.
As Speaker Pro Tem, I am using my position as a member of the Assembly’s Leadership Team to advance the concerns and issues of my constituents of San Jose.
I have a number of important bills making their way through the Legislature to strengthen the rights of domestic violence victims; help protect the privacy rights of public employees; and stand up for women veterans and active duty military, among others.
