Over 500 volunteers and local residents of CA-25 gathered at a park in Stevenson Ranch on a hot, sunny day in June to celebrate local candidates. Hosted by CA-25 United For Progress, as part of their Summer of Persistence program, they dined on BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers while getting ready to Get Out The Vote.
