HIGH ABOVE DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (Feb. 9, 2018) -- Sen. Holly J. Mitchell's efforts to better know her Senate District 30 took to new heights as she received a pilot stick-on aerial tour of the home to nearly one million of her constituents as part of a California Highway Patrol training program for its Air Rescue Support Division. As a member of the Senate Public Safety Committee, Mitchell rode along with the California Highway Patrol’s Southern Division Air Operations Unit on a patrol flight to get first-hand experience on CHP air operations.

SACRAMENTO -- While walking by the Capitol Rotunda recently, two Wisconsin tourists asked Sen. Holly J. Mitchell where else they should explore. Mitchell's answer floored them, literally: “Well, why don’t we go to the Senate Floor?” What followed was a lively conversation about the political process, Senate history and the California’s Legislature. Judging by the expressions of awe on the faces of the two visitors, Mitchell's after-hours tour and openness was as well received as unexpected. (Photo by Alan Moore, Senate Fellow).

On Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, Sen. Holly J. Mitchell sponsored the installation of the Black Quilters Exhibit in the Capitol annex next to the governor’s ground floor office as well as a welcome reception for the artists in room 211.
