Last week, I was honored to be officially sworn in as your U.S. senator.
I am very grateful and humbled for everything California Democrats like you have done to make our victory possible — and I am eager to get to work on behalf of the most voiceless and vulnerable in our society.
Never before has that work felt more urgent. With Republicans in the majority and Donald Trump in the White House, we have a lot of work ahead us — and I am committed to fighting for California and for our values.
As I roll up my sleeves, I am grateful to be carrying forward Senator Barbara Boxer’s progressive legacy. Senator Boxer has been a tireless champion in Congress for our state’s future. As she leaves the Senate, I know she would appreciate our best wishes and gratitude.
For so many years, Senator Boxer has fought fiercely for our environment, for women’s rights, for LGBTQ equality, for working families — the list goes on and on.
As we recommit ourselves to the struggle for justice and equality in the months and years to come, Senator Boxer’s unwavering commitment to standing up for what’s right throughout her years in Congress should serve as an inspiration to us all.
While Senator Boxer prepares for her next chapter in our shared fight for progress, I know she would appreciate hearing from her supporters.
