Last week, plans to be voting in DC were changed to pay respects and lay President George H.W. Bush to rest. Bush served our country with dignity, and our thoughts remain with the Bush family during this difficult time.

Mark's Bill to Rename the Nevin Avenue Post Office in Richmond was Signed into Law

On Friday, Mark's bill to rename the Nevin Avenue Post Office in honor of Harold D. McCraw Sr. was signed into law. Harold was a distinguished and dedicated civil servant, who began working for the Richmond Post Office in 1965 and served the United States Postal Service (USPS) for 45 years. Mr. McCraw was also an active member of the Richmond community, serving on various boards and commissions, and he facilitated the development of a child care facility that has expanded to five locations and cares for hundreds of children.

Commemorated the 77th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor at the Mt. Diablo Beacon Lighting

During World War II, the beacon atop Mt. Diablo went dark to make an air attack on California more difficult, and was not lit again until 1964. Each year since on December 7th, a date which will live in infamy, we light the beacon to pay tribute to the lives lost at Pearl Harbor.
