A Roadmap of Priority

A Roadmap of Priority

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD – 75 (R) Tired of sitting in backlogged traffic on the I-15 or just trying to get your kids to school and then to work?  California’s population has almost doubled since the 1970s, but our highway system has not kept pace and must be upgraded to keep our people moving and […]

9-11 Remembrance Ceremony not seen

I wish to commend the Fallbrook Chamber, the contributors and participants for a heart warming presentation remembering the events of 9-11-01. The only thing missing was the attendance; where were the people? It seems that people have grown complacent to that so very important event, 9-11-01, that has changed life as we know it in […]

Globally, maternal mortality rate has declined

That includes California as well. That’s the good news. The bad news is, that as a whole, America’s rate increased to 21 percent. This is from a study in the September Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology covering the period 2000-2014. The horrible news: Texas maternal deaths per 100,000 births rose to 23.8 in 2014 from […]

Consumer Protections in Health Care

Consumer Protections in Health Care

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD – 75 (R) We are all deeply concerned about the welfare of our families. As a wife and mother, these concerns naturally influence my legislation, as well as the bills I support. As a result, this session I was proud to lend my support to an important package of healthcare bills […]

Especially popular are books geared toward high school, middle school and elementary level students. Magazines, puzzles and games are also welcome. The BookSwap is an event that gets reading materials into the […]

Governor Brown signs climate change legislation

LOS ANGELES – Ten years after California adopted the toughest greenhouse gas emission reduction goals in the nation, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. strengthened that commitment on Sept. 9, signing SB 32 by Senator Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills) and AB 197 by Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella), which require the state to cut emissions at least 40 […]

Re-zoning land to one or two acre lots is best idea

It appears likely that the Fallbrook Golf Course will never be a golf course again. The owner is about to be foreclosed upon. The neighbors in the surrounding area are very concerned with what will happen with the land. Most, I am sure, would like it to remain as a golf course or open space. The […]

Women In California Legislature

When I was elected to the Assembly in 2012, I was the 136th woman to ever have served in California’s Legislature.  Women first received the right to vote in California in 1911, and in 1918 Esto Broughton, Grace Dorris, Elizabeth Hughes and Anna Saylor became the first women elected to the State Assembly. Since then, […]

Re: FPUD adopts 2016-17 budget and rates [Village News 8/25/16]

FPUD billing has much lower rates than what I am paying. For my standby locked meter, FPUD’s rates are about 70 percent lower; for  the 3/4 inch  meter, turned on, they’re about 50 percent lower than our Rainbow customer rates as charged now. I was told that “RWMD customers ‘own’ a larger section of the water system than those in […]
