Rep. Gomberg: Inferno

Labor Day ended with more impact than any of us could have imagined. Monday night, warm winds erupted from the east. The sky filled with smoke. And early in the evening, the power went out for most of us.

Gomberg: Getting Our District Back to Work

We are fortunate to live in a special part of America that values racial, ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity. But anyone paying attention this week knows that problems persist. Systemic, institutional, and interpersonal racism remains in our country and in our state that must be addressed.
