Hello! My name is Pamela Ison, and I am the District Director for Senator Toni Atkins. Because the boss is celebrating her birthday today, Team Toni decided to give her the day off and take over the August newsletter ourselves. What we thought we'd do is tell you a little bit about the District Office and what we do, and our colleagues from the Capitol will chip in with an update on the budget and infrastructure bills that were signed in Sacramento since our last edition.
Team Toni is fortunate to have many talented staff in the 39th Senate District serving constituents, and in honor of Senator Atkins' birthday, we invited each of them to share what they love about their work:
Hi I'm Nick Hardeman, Senator Atkins Chief of Staff in Sacramento, happy to help our colleagues in San Diego give the boss a birthday break by sharing an update of what's been going on in the Capitol since our last newsletter.
San Diego Pride week is one of my favorite annual events in the 39th Senate District. It's an uplifting celebration of the resilience, diversity, and vibrancy of our LGBTQ+ community. From She Fest to the San Diego Pride Parade, each event is an opportunity to connect with members of the community and allies, and to recommit to the fight against anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination. Together, we'll build a world where all can thrive! Happy Pride, San Diego!
The San Diego Pride parade was a joyous celebration of love and inclusivity! It was incredible to see so many friends, supporters, members of the community, and allies at this lively event.
