Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia Co-Hosts Community Exide Status Cleanup Hearing
(Los Angeles) – During an oversight hearing at Resurrection Church in Los Angeles, Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) participated in a status update on the residential cleanup efforts by the Department of Toxic Substances Control and issues still faced by the community. “ We have to connect with our constituents and share the information that’s important in a community like this where so many areas are hot-spots and so many individuals are affected,” said Garcia. “This is a community that has been left behind, has been treated like a wasteland and who’s constituents feel they’re treated like they’re disposable. We are not going to be satisfied with so little when we know so much more needs to be done.” For more, watch this Assembly Access video.
