State Rep. Cephas Hosts her 1st Constituent Day
State Rep. Morgan Cephas held her first Constituent District Day on Saturday, Aug. 19 at Tustin Recreation Center, in association with Councilman Curtis Jones.
This free event featured activities for the entire family, including a basketball tournament, sanctioned boxing tournaments, mock police training for children, games, raffles, giveaways, food and refreshments. The event was complete with live music and entertainment. Legends Chubb Rock, Dana Dane, Kwame, Monie Love and Special Ed performed a rocking old school show. Following, Philly’s own Eve performed a medley of her chart topping hits.
In addition to the activities and entertainment, there were a number of different programs and groups that provide services to the community on site. “This event is about the people. I’m here serving as a state representative because they put their trust in me and it is not only my job, but my responsibility to cut the red tape and make the government more accessible to them,” Cephas said. “More than just fun for the whole family, I’ll meet with constituents one-on-one to make sure they know the broad range of services that my district office can help them obtain.”
Cephas and her staff provided assistance for constituents applying for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicaid, the Property Tax/Rent Rebate and other state government programs and benefits. “I hope I can meet more neighbors from my district to establish a dialogue, but more importantly, to keep the conversation open to better understand the issues and problems that concern them,” Cephas stated.
