As 2020 draws to a close, I think we can all agree this has been an incredibly tough year.

And while there are challenging days ahead, I’m firm in the belief that we’re going to get through this pandemic because we have each other. Through fires, floods and now this virus, we’ve always been stronger when we work together.

We’re incredibly hopeful for the new year. With vaccines now being distributed in the state, brighter days are ahead after so much sacrifice and hardship by so many of our neighbors.

That’s why, as we close out 2020 and look towards 2021, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Please know, while we may not always agree, we deeply value your insight and opinion and I hope you’ll continue to reach out.

It’s an honor to live and work in Northern California, here in the Golden State, with the most amazing people on earth – where every voice matters as we work to meet the unique challenges of this big and diverse district.

We can’t thank you enough for being an active and engaged part of the important decisions that determine our future. Please let us know how we can provide assistance in the months to come.

From all of us here in the office, here’s to better days ahead. Happy New Year!

Warmest Regards,

Mike McGuire

State senator
