A stop in Redlands led to me to a coffee shop across the street from city hall. While city hall was closed (due to budget cuts and furloughs) Mr. Baker and I discussed Redlands, its history, and its future. And then I presented him with his award.
Afterwards, I drove to Irvine to meet with Janice Voshall and Cindy Smith, the two students who interned with a political campaign and ended up shaking the very foundation of California local governments.
Pictured below, I am with the two recent graduates at the Brandman Campus as they accept their awards for Service to the State.
