Letter from the OC Caucus Co-Chairs

As the 2015-2016 year comes to an end, we would like to thank everyone who has supported the Orange County Caucus and helped us succeed with all of our events throughout the year. From the NAMI Walk in October, serving Thanksgiving lunch to families at the Mental Health Association of Orange County, to donating blood with the American Red Cross or painting homeless shelters with the Thomas House Foundation, we express our deepest gratitude.

This has been a great year and we could not have done it without the support from Gina, Pancy, and Dr. Weiss.

As we begin this next chapter in our lives, we end our current one with the strength manifested from the life-long friendships we have established. Hopefully, for most of us, this is not a goodbye, but simply a "see you in the field".

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Fight on!

Your 2015-2016 Orange County Caucus Co-Chairs,

Jonathan Aspuria & Sarah McClellan
