Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) issued the following statement when he spoke to the
Earthquake Town Hall a community gathering, at Trona High School

“I want to
thank everyone who joined me at our Earthquake Town Hall in Trona yesterday.
All the first responders have done an amazing job in the recovery effort but I
am most impressed with the resiliency and kindness of the people of Trona. I
spoke to many residents about the terror they felt during the earthquake and
the toll it took on their lives. It was heartbreaking to hear their stories.
Despite this tragedy, everyone has come together to make sure that their
neighbors, family, and friends are taken care of. Although there’s still much
work to be done, we’re off to a good start.
“On the way
back from the town hall meeting, I had the opportunity to meet with Vice
President Mike Pence. He and I spoke about the earthquake and the federal
declaration of emergency. I found him to be very knowledgeable and extremely
caring. He pledged to help us with whatever is needed to get these communities
back on their feet.
committed to getting residents all of the help they require to recover from
this disaster. I encourage anyone affected by this earthquake who needs
assistance to please call my District Office located in Hesperia, so we can
help connect them to the services that they need.”
