To welcome in the new year, Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez will be hosting an open house at her district office for members of the public from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday at 41391 Kalmia St. Suite 220, Murrieta.
This is an opportunity for residents to meet their newly elected state representative.

Melendez was sworn into office Dec. 3.
