Wednesday, February 7, 2018

(Sacramento)     – Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) had a special guest with  him for Governor Jerry Brown’s 16th and final State of the State  address. Eagle Scout Joaquin Villegas, who started a community service  scout project to have a monument dedicated to Veterans from throughout  the Valley and of all six branches of the armed forces, sat in the  gallery as the Governor delivered his speech. A dedication ceremony for  the completed monument was held recently. “I made a project that I  thought would benefit the veterans and fortunately I was very lucky to  have opportunities like this to come to me,” Villegas said.
