Senior Scam Stopper Series

CASTRO VALLEY - Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) is hosting several Senior Scam Stopper events throughout the 20th Assembly District this summer. The events, held in cooperation with the Contractor’s State License Board will help consumers learn how to spot commons scams and avoid falling prey to them. Attendees can get answers to their questions and obtain immediate assistance if they have been victims of a scam.

The seminar will feature a panel of experts from across the state, who will discuss topics including: how to protect oneself from identity theft, how to avoid investment related scams, and what to look for and ask about before engaging in home and auto repair contracts.

Asian and Pacific Islander Americans have played a significant role in the social, economic and political development of California throughout its history. Today, Asian and Pacific Islander Americans comprise over 14 percent of California’s population, or about five million people.

Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month is a perfect opportunity for us all to learn more about our Asian and Pacific Islander neighbors, and to acknowledge the contributions they have made to our state and our nation.

Join me as we celebrate “Unity in Diversity” at the 20th Annual Asian American Heritage Festival, on Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 10 AM – 5 PM at City Hall Plaza in Hayward.

I will be on hand to commemorate the work of the Asian American Federation of California in organizing this festival for the past 20 years, and to speak with you about any state related concerns.
