On November 4, 2014, California voters passed Proposition 47, a law that changed certain low-level crimes from potential felonies to misdemeanors.

Prop. 47 is the largest opportunity in U.S. history for people to change past felony convictions on their records. As many as 1 million Californians may be eligible.

One in three people are banned from employment due to a criminal past that includes a felony. Are you, a family member, friend or neighbor ready for a second chance?

The record change process (also known as reclassification) is for individuals with a qualifying low-level, nonviolent felony on their criminal record. Prop. 47 record change clinics and resource fairs are happening across the state.

Visit for a list of events.

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone in Assembly District 62 for your continued support and vote of confidence in me.  Communities like ours are the drivers for change.

And, as the biggest holiday shopping season approaches, I encourage you to shop local whenever you can. This Saturday, November 26 is Small Business Saturday  which serves as an important opportunity to show support for our many local small businesses.

One of the best investments we can make in our community is to support local businesses. Local business owners are the backbone of California's economy.
