Join me for an electrifying event

Tim Goodrich Torrance City Council EVentSince 2011, I've been driving an electric car because of the many benefits they offer; improving our national security (not sending oil profits to counties who don’t share our values and sometimes funnel money to terrorist organizations), our economy (creating jobs by installing and maintaining infrastructure), and our environment (providing cleaner air).
