Cameron Smyth
Elected in 2006, Assemblyman Cameron Smyth is honored to represent the 38th Assembly District, which includes the cities of Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Simi Valley and Glendale.

Upon his re-election in 2008, Assemblyman Smyth was appointed by Assembly Republican Leader Michael Villines as the Republican Caucus Chair, which is the second-highest ranking Republican in the State Assembly. An integral part of the Assembly Republican leadership team, the Caucus Chair assists the Leader in advancing the Republican policy agenda, and achieving the Caucus' political goals. Additionally, the Caucus Chair regularly communicates with Republican leaders throughout California on key legislative issues and party matters.

33 Minutes - A Must-see Video


Protecting America in the New Missile Age

We will be showing this video at Galpin Ford at 7:00pm on Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00pm.  Please join us to see this very important film.  We will have a discussion following the film

33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age is a one-hour documentary produced by The Heritage Foundation that tells the story of the very real threat foreign enemies pose to every one us. The truth is brutal - no matter where on Earth a missile is launched from it would take 33 Minutes or less to hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy.

Nuclear proliferation around the world, and the threat of a ballistic missile attack of some kind is mounting as more and more countries obtain nuclear technology. The ongoing threat toward America is also accelerating due to the fact that there are many rogue nations and terrorist organizations who either have or are seeking ballistic missiles and nuclear technology.

The challenges of protecting America and its citizens for President Obama's administration are great. Featuring rare footage and in-depth interviews with leading experts in the field, 33 Minutes is the definitive documentary exposing the untold vulnerability we all face and the action plan necessary to revive a strategic missile defense system that America uniquely can develop, maintain, and employ for its own defense and the peace-loving world's security.
