Noting that Cervantes did not vote to extend California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, Rendon said: “With Sabrina, she’s not sort of an ideologically rigid member. She votes for things on a case-by-case basis … and I think her voters recognize that and I think they’ll reward her with another term.”
Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, 60th District, led the effort to secure a $2 million allocation to build a Veterans Resource Center at Norco College. The allocation was approved by the state budget in June – the only one of its kind statewide. The new center will expand and enhance programs and services to student veterans moving from boots and helmets to civilian life through: military service to college credit articulation, counseling, health services, housing, child care and access to community and veterans resources. The current Veterans Resource Center offers veteran students assistance with financial aid, military benefits, counseling, and academic support.
