Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares has worked for faith-based nonprofits helping underserved constituents. New Year’s resolutions are a great time to focus on what’s important, what has been accomplished and what needs to be done, according to Valladares.
In a recent on-air interview with KHTS reporter Jade Aubuchon, assemblymember Suzette Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, reviewed her first year serving in office.
California’s prolonged wildfire season and concerning drought conditions threaten to subject hundreds of thousands of residents to a new round of power blackouts if our state government doesn’t take meaningful action.
Suzette Martinez Valladares, Republican Assemblywoman from Santa Clarita, joins to discuss her family's history in California and how it has shaped her views on issues like criminal justice, her recent resolution to honor Nancy Reagan, her work in the legislature's Problem Solvers Caucus, and why "we need more moms" in the state legislature.
"A resolution introduced by Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, would honor the former first lady, who would have been 100 years old on July 6, for a whole year."
Assemblywoman Suzette Martinez Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, has rejected a salary increase approved for legislators, saying she doesn’t want to take a pay bump as thousands of her constituents are still struggling amid the economic fallout triggered by the pandemic. 
“Many of my constituents are struggling and not receiving the government services they need. With this in mind, I am denying the approved legislative pay increase,” [Valladares] wrote.
'"While there are some good items in the budget draft, we need to do more to get Californians the help they need—lowering the skyrocketing cost of living, addressing and making housing and healthcare more affordable and accessible, and fixing the problems that led to many workers not getting the benefits they earned,' [Valladares] wrote in an email statement." 
"Valladares also obtained Assembly approval of bills providing domestic violence reporting material in four additional languages, supporting the safe reopening of theme parks, exempting local forest management practices from environmental laws, and funding universal preschool in California."
"AB 267 builds on California’s long-term goal of building resilient forests and increasing wildfire prevention. With an outpouring of bipartisan support, AB 267 passed the Assembly last Thursday and is now headed to the Senate."
