(MILPITAS, CA) - Today, Assemblymember Kansen Chu hosted his 5th Annual Community Heroes Award Ceremony with more than 500 people in attendance at the India Community Center in Milpitas.  This event, like those in previous years, honored community members who have dedicated their time, energy and efforts to improve the lives of those in Assembly District 25.

“I am heartened to see so many people come together to support more than 80 community members who were recognized and given medals of honor for their dedication and hard work,” said Assemblymember Kansen Chu (D-Milpitas).  “Everyone who received an award today did great deeds, whether big or small, to make our district a better place to live.  I am so honored to represent a district with so many community heroes.  Because of people like the honorees I recognized today, I am inspired keep doing the work that I do in Sacramento.”

Assemblymember Kansen Chu began this annual tradition when he was a Councilmember in San Jose.  It is a way to celebrate the work by those that sometime go unnoticed.  If you would like to recognize a hero in your life, keep an eye out for calls for nomination in 2020.
