Rep. Miller honors Kimberly Felder as Angel in Adoption

Rep. Gary Miller's weekly newsletter had an interesting story. I am glad Congress has an award like this.

Kimberly Felder Honored as Angel in Adoption

Washington, Oct 2 - Congressman Miller was honored to nominate Kimberly Felder as his 2009 Angel in Adoption. The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute each year administers the Angels in Adoption program which allows Members of Congress to honor the good work of one person or family in their district who has enriched the lives of foster children or orphans.

Kimberly Felder has an unparalleled career in adoptive family development, spanning 20 years and two agencies in Southern California. She has shepherded thousands of children into loving adoptive families, giving them the opportunity for a more promising future. Kimberly and her husband Carl have two birth children and seven adopted children who joined the family as infants, toddlers, and adolescents. Congressman Miller commends Kimberly for being a real Angel in Adoption. On Wednesday, Kimberly was honored in a ceremony at the Angels in Adoption Gala in Washington, DC.

To nominate an Angel for 2010, please contact his Brea office at (714) 257-1142.

Three Valleys Municipal Water Board Director Xavier Alvarez was sentenced to five years in state prison Thursday for insurance fraud, misappropriation of public funds and grand theft.
He was led out of court in handcuffs after the sentencing in Pomona Superior Court.

Alvarez, 51, was convicted for registering his ex-wife, Juanita Ruiz, for health benefits with the water district from Jan. 24 to Oct. 31, 2007. The action cost the district about $4,000.

He will lose his position on the water board and will not be allowed to run for public office again, said Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Sandi Roth.

Alvarez's term on the water board has been drowned in controversy.

He was fined and sentenced to probation in July 2008 after he was convicted of federal charges for falsely claiming he won the Medal of Honor.

Alvarez represents south Pomona on the water board.

Assemblyman Curt Hagman Demands Audit And End To Any California Funding For Acorn

From Assemblyman Hagman.

Assemblyman Curt Hagman Demands Audit And End To Any California Funding For Acorn

Today, Assemblyman Curt Hagman (R-Chino Hills), Vice-Chair of the California State Assembly Public Safety Committee, sent a letter to Governor Schwarzenegger requesting an Audit and the suspension of any state funding currently being provided to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

"The United States Congress and Governor of Minnesota saw fit to withdraw funding in light of recent improper activity," said Assemblyman Hagman. "I support Governor Schwarzenegger's request for an investigation by the State Attorney General. I also believe recent reports and activities in California give good cause to audit and suspend any state funding for ACORN pending this investigation.

ACORN has so many tentacles only an audit can ensure no funding is going to this questionable organization."
