Blue Ribbon Task Force announces change in leadership


On June 15, the Blue Ribbon Task Force met to announce the transition of the Task Force to the office of State Senator Jose Menendez (Senate District 26). Judge Peter Sakai of the 225th District Court and retired Judge John Specia will join Senator Menedez in a tri-chair leadership of this group. The mission of the Blue Ribbon Task Force is to develop and advance community-based solutions for the problems of child abuse and neglect. Through education, support and prevention efforts, the Blue Ribbon Task Force will help create a community where all children are cherished and protected. More details will be provided as they become available regarding plans for future and on-going meetings of the Task Force.
