Partnership hosts successful breakfast with Rep. Judy Chu
PASADENA - Last week the Partnership hosted a special breakfast event with Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) at Shriners Children's Medical Center. Nearly 40 members of the Partnership attended the event and heard an update from Congresswoman Chu on a number of critical federal issues.
Congresswoman Chu addressed a broad range of topics, notably the new tariffs enacted by the Trump Administration and the negative effect they would have to key industries throughout California - notably the wine and agriculture sectors. Congress has been working to overturn those tariffs and help mitigate their effect. The Congresswoman also discussed her support for the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument and the additional financial support that the designation has brought to the area to address long-term critical needs such as trail maintenance, trash collection and other important services. Breakfast guests were welcomed by this year's Chair of the Board Reyna Del Haro of Kaiser Permanente.
Partnership members attending the event came from the Arcadia and Citrus Valley Associations of Realtors, San Gabriel Valley Water Company, Citrus Valley Health Partners, Rose Hills, the City of Pasadena, Pasadena City College, and Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District.
The Partnership thanks Shriners Children's Medical Center for generously hosting the breakfast and opening their facility to our guests.
