What We’ve Achieved As your leader in Senate District 35, Monteiro has:
Led during the covid-19 pandemic by providing essential services and advocated for the needs of our communities
The past few years have been incredibly difficult for our communities in Senate District 35. We’ve’ lost loved ones, our businesses have been disrupted, and our way of life has been turned upside down. But I want you to know that I will continue to be there for you and your loved ones, whether it’s listening to your concerns, helping find and fight for resources for our district. My commitment to our communities is stronger than ever.
During the COVID-19 pandemic our work and partnerships with community leaders, businesses, County, State, and Federal governments have helped our district overcome adversity and stay financially afloat. I participated in multiple food distributions for our Senate District 35 communities and worked to bring the COVID-19 testing to help protect essential workers and their loved ones.
As a result of our efforts, our district was able to:
  • Provide food and other essential services to residents in need. 

  • Increase access to COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

  • Support small businesses and keep our economy afloat.

  • Protect the health and safety of our community.

We are grateful for the support of our community partners and the hard work of our staff. We are committed to continuing to work together to build a stronger and more resilient district.

Public Safety Efforts:
  • We’ve increased police presence at our parks to make sure community members and our children feel safe and welcome.
  • We are working with police departments to create safer spaces for our communities in Senate District 35.
  • We are encouraging community policing programs to build relationships between law enforcement and our residents.
  • We know that traffic safety is a concern for many of our residents, and we’re taking steps to address it by installing traffic signals and speed bumps to make our streets safer for everyone.
  • We acknowledge that traffic congestion is a problem in our communities and recently created two left lanes on Crenshaw and 120th to improve traffic flow and safety.
As your Champion of Integrity, I continue to promote government transparency and ensure that your voices are heard. With crime on top of mind, and many of us feeling unsafe in our own neighborhoods. My priority is the well-being and safety of all community members in Senate District 35. Together and through collaboration, we can overcome these challenges of community safety. We can make our community a safer place to live, work, and raise a family.
Our communities is made up of people from all walks of life. We have people of different races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds. This diversity is one of our greatest strengths. It makes our communities more vibrant, more interesting, and more welcoming. We need to build bridges, not walls.
As a public servant and community leader in Senate District 35, We created the 1st Annual World Fest, which brought together people from all over the world to celebrate our diversity and our shared humanity. I was instrumental in planning Earth Day celebrations, Bunny and Providers fair, Centennial Anniversary, and sponsored the 1st Juneteenth Festival, Collaborated with FACE for the 1st Homeowner First-Time Home Buyer Program, specifically aimed at benefiting our African-American community, Promoted Hero Pay for all Staff in Hawthorne, and was Instrumental in the construction of Transitional Housing (tiny Homes) for the unhoused individuals. In collaboration with Hawthorne Imperial Lions Club and Friends in Sight, we screened 200 individuals and gave more than 200 free glasses to children and adults.
These events are all important ways for our community to come together and celebrate what makes us special. As Senator I will continue to celebrate our communities and diversity!
Senate district 35 is on the move. We are transforming our district into a more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable community. I am proud to be a part of this transformation, and I am committed to working with the community to make Senate District 35 a better place for everyone.
Here are some of the things that I have been working on to improve our communities:
  • I was instrumental in bringing Standards Company to create the Joint Power Agreement (JPA) to acquire the South Bay Millennium Project on Crenshaw. This housing project is for medium-income individuals, which will save rentals about $600 per month for rent. The JPA and its property management will give priority to first responders, police officers, teachers, and military personnel.
  • I advocated for more hotels in our district with good-paying jobs. Hotels create jobs, generate tax revenue, and attract visitors to our community.
  • I advocated for the LAX expansion, workforce development, aviation sustainability, and mobility; make Port of Los Angeles more efficient, with 21st-century technology with an electrification system, reliable, and sustainable to move goods into our communities safely.
