Kicked in the Teeth--Again!
An article appeared in today's Daily Bulletin under the Ontario NOW section regarding an open house at Assemblywoman Norma Torres' new District Office at 822 N. Euclid (see on map of the 61st District at left). So she couldn't get out of town fast enough. One might argue that the assembly seat is district wide so you need to be in the center of the district. But the way I see it, it's nowhere near the center (unless you count the center as the center of the 10 freeway). So those poor seniors who have to eat dog food must be grouped near Euclid and the 10 freeway so they can easily walk to get help from her staff. That's the only reason I can think of that she eschewed her Pomona base for the higher demographics of Ontario. (Sorry, sarcasm comes so easy.)
Why can't a Pomona assemblyperson have a district office IN Pomona? Nell Soto did the same thing. So much for those of us in the "hinterlands" getting any attention from the assembly office.
