Das Re-elected

As many of you already know, my oldest son Das was re-elected to the California Assembly this past November. Here's the message he sent out at year's end:

The end of the year is a time for reflection and an opportunity to share your appreciation to everyone who had an impact in your life.

This was a year full of accomplishments and victories, which would not have been possible without the support and dedication of individuals like you. And because of that, I would like to thank you this holiday season.

For me, the highlight of the year was our success in balancing the budget with the passage of Prop 30. It certainly makes me breathe a lot easier in returning to the State Legislature for a second term, which I'm grateful to have earned.

If there is anything this year has taught us, it is that there is nothing we cannot accomplish if we simply communicate with one another. Prop 30 was passed and a great team was elected to represent our community because of the work we did together to talk to voters and give them enough hope in our future to get out and vote.

My wish for the new year is that we continue to have respectful dialogues with our neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family about the issues that affect us all. If we do that, we will make 2013 as great of a year as 2012 has been.

Happy New Year!
