SACRAMENTO, CA – Today, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) adjourned in the memory of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona. Natalie was just 22 years old when she was shot and killed on the evening of January 10th, while performing her duties as a rookie Davis Police Officer at a routine traffic stop.  She is survived by her parents, Merced and Lupe Corona, and her sisters Jackie, Cathy, and Cindy of Arbuckle, CA, where she was born and raised.

“Her commitment to service was only exceeded by the love for her big Colusa family,” said Aguiar-Curry. “Every person I’ve spoken with during the past few days has said Natalie was meant for great things.  One of her colleagues said this rookie would have been the chief someday.”

SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) issued the following statement following the shooting of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona in the line of duty in Davis, CA on the evening of January 10, 2019:

“My heart broke last night upon hearing the news. Natalie Corona, was widely recognized to be a rising star among her fellow police officers in the Davis community.  Her service was so much more than a job.  She committed herself completely to protecting the Davis Community as an officer, and also committed her personal time to working for us all.

We will, without a doubt, miss her dedication and passion for public safety.  Yet, I know that nothing we are feeling could possibly compare to the grief of her family at this time.  I am grieving with the Davis community and with Natalie’s family. Our community is shaken, and we will struggle for a long time to process what happened.

Sacramento, CA – Today, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D – Winters) and several of her Assembly colleagues introduced ACA 1, a constitutional amendment which would give local governments improved options for funding critical infrastructure projects, including broadband expansion, local roads, and affordable housing projects. This bill is important, because it will empower local communities to address local priorities without needing to rely on state and federal funding initiatives.

ACA 1 would reduce the local vote threshold for approval of bond and special tax measures from a two-thirds vote to a 55 percent majority.  This is the same vote threshold that currently applies to all local school district measures. By making this change, ACA 1 puts housing and infrastructure projects on par with school proposals, so that cities, counties, and special districts have a practical financing tool to address community needs.
