Sabrina Cervantes siempre quiso tener cuatro hijos. Lo que nunca pensó es que la vida le iba a cumplir su deseo casi a cabalidad en su primer embarazo: en diciembre, la asambleísta y su esposa se convirtieron en madres de unos trillizos, dos niñas y un niño.

“Estoy constantemente ocupada”, dijo Cervantes, quien representa el distrito 60 de la asamblea estatal. “Aunque nuestro corazón está lleno de amor y felicidad; [nuestros hijos] son una bendición”.

Como la representante demócrata fue quien dio a luz a los bebés, además de sus múltiples ocupaciones y cargos en el gobierno, tiene manos llenas –literalmente– con el amamantamiento de los tres niños.

As a new mother to three infants, I immediately hoped for what every parent in our community wants for their children: the best and brightest future for our children.

That is why, when our family’s Census form arrived in the mail, we made sure to count every person in our home, especially our infant triplets.

It is so important that everyone is counted in the 2020 Census—especially our children under five. Oftentimes, parents with young children do not realize they need to include all children. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 1 million children (4.6% of children under the age of 5) were not counted in the 2010 Census.

The school’s largest building now fits 80 students, which is part of the reason the number of incoming students has grown only from 50 the first year to 77 in 2020. Plans are ready for a new, larger building that should be complete by 2023, Deas said.

The funding will also allow the school to hire more full-time faculty and staff and purchase additional state-of-the-art equipment for classrooms and the simulation center.

Senator Richard Roth, Assemblyman Jose Medina and Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, all Democrats based in Riverside, sponsored the increased funding.

Roth, in partnership with assembly members Sabrina Cervantes and Jose Medina, both D-Riverside, introduced legislation last year to spend $80 million on a “dedicated facility” for the medical school, which opened in 2013. A boost in ongoing state funding was part of the bill, but final budget negotiations last summer left that increased support in limbo.

Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, D-Riverside, gave birth to two boys and a girl last week, her office announced Monday, Dec. 16.

“My wife and I … are deeply grateful for the love and support from our family, friends, and the medical team who have been with us on this exciting journey,” Cervantes said in a news release. “We look forward to celebrating the holidays with the three newest additions to our family.”

Cervantes and her family are in good health, the release added.

She’s the fourth California legislator and the first LGBT lawmaker to give birth while in office. First elected in 2016, Cervantes’ district includes part of Riverside along with Corona, Norco, Eastvale, and Jurupa Valley.

To say Sacramento’s attention to Inland needs is overdue is an understatement. For years this area has been a political afterthought.

So special kudos to the lawmakers for including in their $213 billion budget a few million dollars so UC Riverside’s medical school can expand and the Inland area can get more judges.

Kudos to Sen. Richard Roth, D-Riverside, and Assemblymembers Sabrina Cervantes, D-Corona, and Jose Medina, D-Riverside, for spearheading the effort to get up to $100 million for medical school expansion and a piece of the $36 million earmarked for more judges in the state. They also secured a $10 million boost in annual funding for the medical school.
