Last month, the 2017 Leadership Torrance cohort enjoyed an educational and enriching trip to Sacramento. Special thanks to LT Alumni and current Field Deputy for Los Angeles County 4th District Supervisor Janice Hahn, Mark Waronek, for facilitating meetings and appointments with our state legislators and leaders.

The group was presented with engaging presentations about our state's bicameral system and history of the Capitol's buildings. California business climate and current issues were also discussed with Cathy Mesch of Cal Chamber. The trip was highlighted by dynamic interaction with State Senator Ben Allen (pictured below), representing the 26th Senate District which spans from West Hollywood to Santa Monica and south along the coast to Palos Verdes, including parts of Torrance.
