I recently attended Assemblyman Tri Ta’s open house to welcome residents to his new district office in the City of Westminster. The former Mayor of Westminster represents the 70th Assembly District, which includes Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Los Alamitos, Midway City, Rossmoor, Stanton, Westminster, and portions of Huntington Beach, Santa Ana, and Seal Beach.

Small businesses are the backbone of #OrangeCounty and are critical for our economy. Assemblyman Tri Ta recently introduced AB 778 to help #smallbusinesses that continue to suffer from the ripple effects of the pandemic.

ℹ️ For legislative questions, state-related matters, or assistance with other community resources, contact Assemblyman Tri Ta’s office at 714-379-0970 or visit their website at ad70.asmrc.org/.Photos from Supervisor Andrew Do's post
