1332433836-norma_torresWASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-CA) was officially sworn-in as U.S. Representative for California’s 35th district.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve in the United States Congress,” Torres stated.   “I am humbled by the opportunity to represent the residents of California’s 35th district and am ready to get to work on their behalf.

The problems facing the Inland Empire are no different than those most Americans face: keeping a roof over their heads, putting their kids through college, affording quality healthcare, and finding a good-paying job,” Torres continued.  “I am committed to doing my part to break through the gridlock by working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to move our nation forward and do what is right for the voters who sent us here.”

Rep. Torres was elected to Congress on November 4, 2014 and succeeds former Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod.

New Hope Baptist Church Hosts Shopping Spree for Youth

An unexpected shopping spree delighted families and children from New Hope Missionary Baptist Church  just in time for Christmas.  Fredda and Art Davis paid it forward, giving youngsters a chance to “Go shopping in grand style during the Christmas season.”  Art and Fredda arranged to meet the youngsters and their parents at a local Target Store, where the kids received $100.00 per family. One father was overheard saying, “This is really cool, things are tough, and true, this helps my wallet, but it really helps my heart! It is good that they are sharing theirs. I want to be just like them!” Dr. Robert Fairley, Sr. Pastor of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church said he is “Delighted to have our congregation’s young people participate in this spirited spree”
