SCV TO DC Trip Slated For September 19, 20 & 21, 2022
On the heels of the popular annual KHTS Sacramento trip, the Santa Clarita radio station is bringing back its Washington DC Advocacy trip in cooperation with Santa Clarita Congressman Mike Garcia.
The four-day trip from Sept. 18 – Sept. 21, (Sunday, September 18, 2022 is a travel day) will contain a full schedule of meetings with official decision-makers.
Garcia Is Enthused
“My staff and I are excited to welcome KHTS Radio, Santa Clarita business owners, local leaders, and a few of our Santa Clarita residents back to Capitol Hill!” said Congressman Garcia.
“After two years of the pandemic, I am thoroughly looking forward to sharing our nation’s beautiful Capitol with those from CA-25 and bringing industry leaders to discuss issues impacting our community,” said Congressman Garcia.
Education Workforce, Energy, Transportation, Mental Health, and the business climate will be among the topics covered.
Representatives from the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce, College of the Canyons, the City of Santa Clarita, VIA, and many other community leaders will be participating.
“It’s a cross-section of the community,” said KHTS owner, Carl Goldman “We’re planning to seek additional funding for the Santa Clarita SeniorCenter, the Santa Clarita Boys & Girls Club and Santa Clarita Grocery (our valley’s food bank). It’s an incredible opportunity to get an inside view of the inner workings of Washington DC. The trip is open to Santa Clarita residents and/or people who work in our valley.”
Along with many meetings, a special private dinner is planned with Congressman Garcia and a keynote speaker. Past speakers have included former Senators John McCain and Martha McSally.
The cost to participate is $1,450. The price includes 3-nights at the Capitol Hill Hyatt Regency Hotel, Dinner at the exclusive Capitol Hill Club, and participation in all events. Travel is the responsibility of each participant.
“We participated in the last KHTS SCV to DC trip in 2018,” shared Inessa Chavez. She and her husband Jeff live in Santa Clarita along with their three children. They own All American Bail Bonds. “It was a once in a lifetime experience. Jeff and I plan on going again this year.”
Goldman added, “We have a few spaces remaining for our KHTS Sacramento trip on May 31/June 1, 2022. . We have room for a total of 120 on our Sacramento trip, but only have slots for 50 for Washington DC and reservations are filling up fast.”
