NEXT MEETING

2020 Priorities with Assemblyman Miguel Santiago 

Friday, December 6
10 - 11:30 a.m.

Join the Health Care Council as we welcome Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, member of the California State Assembly Committee on Health, and hear his priorities for the upcoming year. Assemblyman Santiago was first elected to the state Assembly in 2014, where he focuses his efforts on eradicating homelessness, advocating for affordable housing, and leading efforts to make community college free. He also sits on the Assembly's Higher Education, Public Safety, and Utilities and Energy committees and serves as chair of the Communications and Conveyance Committee. Santiago, who represents California's 53rd Assembly District, including Boyle Heights, Downtown Los Angeles, Koreatown, Pico-Union and surrounding areas, will share his thoughts on future policy in the Health Committee as well as possible partnerships with the business community.

We will also use this last meeting of the year to update the Council's guiding principles document that will help shape our advocacy in 2020, and also get a full legislative recap from 2019.
