Assemblywoman Catharine Baker Visits DBMG Members at October Meeting
Assemblywoman Catharine Baker met with the Diablo Black Group Mens Group (DBMG) members and spouses during our General Membership meeting at the Bridges Golf Course on Oct. 3 to discuss the work she’s doing in Sacramento. Assemblywoman Baker represents the 16th Assembly District which includes Alamo, Danville, Dublin, Lafayette, Livermore, Moraga, Orinda, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Walnut Creek.
Baker is currently Vice-Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee, and a member of the committees on Transportation, Business and Professions, Privacy and Consumer Protection, and the Joint Legislative Audit Committee. She also serves on the Select Committees on Youth and California’s Future, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education, and Renewable Energy Development and Restoration of the Salton Sea.
During the DBMG meeting Baker gave the group an update on the work she’s doing to improve funding for our local community colleges and state university systems. She also took time to hear questions, comments and issues that attendees had about the schools in the San Ramon and surrounding Tri-Valley area.
Assemblywoman Baker also announced to the group that DBMG members Phil Tucker and Mitchell Hopson have joined a volunteer committee to focus on issues pertaining to the African-American community within the 16th district. One of the goals of this volunteer committee will be to provide Assemblywoman Baker with additional clarity and perspective on the complex issues and challenges that affect the African-American community, and make recommendations on possible solutions.
