Assmeblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva has been named Chair of the Assembly Veteran’s Affairs Committee. A Statement from the Assemblywoman in response to the Assembly Speaker’s announcement of new committee chair appointments follows:
“I am very excited and honored to be given this opportunity to chair the Assembly Veterans Affairs Committee, which oversees various policy issues affecting the Cal-Vet loan program, Department of Veterans Affairs, National Guard, State military, and Veterans. Quirk-Silva represents the 65th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, Hawaiian Gardens, La Palma, Stanton, and West Anaheim.
I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature, staff and advocates on bills that are considered by this committee in the next session. I have been a strong supporter of efforts that will provide our veterans and their families with the services and benefits they need to help facilitate a full transition from active duty back to civilian life.”
Last month, Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva hosted a “Hometown Heroes” event where she recognized over 80 Veterans in her District for their service and dedication to their communities. A clip from this event and Veterans Day celebrations can be accessed below.
