Washington, DC — Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) today announced that Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen will be her guest at the State of the Union on Tuesday.
“I am honored that Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen will join me as my guest for the State of the Union,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “From the Thomas Fire to the recent Woolsey and Hill Fires, our community has been tested, but with the brave leadership of Chief Lorenzen, we have remained strong and resilient. The words ‘thank you’ do not even begin to fully convey how deeply our community appreciates not only his service and leadership, but the service of all of our local firefighters and first responders, who sacrifice to protect our community every single day.”
“Ventura County has been devastated by tragedy over the last year, and Julia Brownley has consistently stood beside first responders and our communities as we responded and now recover,” said Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen. “I am honored to be invited by Congresswoman Brownley to attend the State of the Union as a representative of all those that are committed to serving others.”
