There are four United States Service Academies that require Congressional Nominations for consideration for a Service Academy appointment: the United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Each member of Congress is able to make 10 nominations and the Vice President is able to make 5 nominations.
Congressman Tony Cardenas has the honor of nominating eligible applicants for consideration for an appointment at a United States Service Academy. The mission of the U.S. service academy is to provide instruction and experience to all cadets so that they graduate with the knowledge and character essential to leadership and the motivation to become career officers in the U.S. military.
This is a great opportunity for students to attend one of the top colleges in our nation.
If you plan to attend, send me a note and I will make sure to reserve a seat.
Please feel free to share my contact information for questions. I am here to help and serve.
Thank you all for your time and assistance with this event.

LOS ANGELES, CA – PLAY BALL! Charter Communications takes a swing at Congressman Tony Cárdenas’ (CA-29) pitch to end Dodgers TV blackout and will air six regular-season Dodgers games, including the final series, to be broadcast by local Los Angeles over-the-air television station KTLA (Channel 5). The broadcast of the first game will include celebrations related to Vin Scully Appreciation Day.
“Game on! Man have I missed Vin Scully,” said Congressman Cárdenas. “He’s the reason I signed up for the Congressional baseball team again this year and why I will be watching the games that will air on KTLA 5. As a legislator, I do not always get to take a swing at fun topics, but if there is anything I am proud of it is my efforts to end the Dodgers blackout in L.A. This may not be the home run my colleagues and I had been writing to FCC Chairman Wheeler about, but it certainly gets us on base.
“For the next month, I’ll be singing a special rendition of the fan favorite song…
Take me out to the ball game,
The Dodgers are finally on.
Buy me a TV that airs the games.
After Vin leaves it will not be the same.
Let’s root, root, root for broadcast negotiations;
If they don’t agree it’s a shame.
For it’s 1!
3!… 4,5,6 games
And we’re back on in L.A!”
In July 2014, Congressman Cárdenas led his Los Angeles delegation colleagues in writing a letter to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler asking the FCC to mediate the stalemate between Time Warner Cable and other pay-TV providers that had left thousands of Los Angeles Dodgers fans unable to watch their team from their homes.
Congressman Cárdenas’ June 29, 2016 op-ed in the Los Angeles Daily News called attention to the issue once again and suggested a work-around in which New Charter could come to an agreement with a Los Angeles TV station to broadcast a number of games over-the-air.
Rep. Cárdenas on Supreme Court’s Ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Tony Cárdenas (D-CA) today praised the Supreme Court’s 5-3 decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt as a major victory for women’s health and a woman’s right to choose.
“Today’s momentous Supreme Court decision has given power back to women in Texas and all across the country. I applaud the Supreme Court for standing on the right side of history by rejecting the absurd premise that women can’t make their own health decisions. The laws struck down today are unconstitutional and arrogant. And to be clear, they are a veiled attempt to obstruct women’s rights and take away their right to consult with a doctor and make their own personal decisions.
“Our job as legislators is to create policies that empower individuals, regardless of their gender, religion, or ethnicity. The Texas legislature placed additional obstacles in the path of women who seek help and care. Not only did the Texas law alienate women, particularly in low-income areas, it failed to provide a single medical example of how these laws would help women. The burden is undue.
“Today is a day to celebrate, as the Supreme Court reaffirms what we should already know as a nation: men and women have the ability and constitutional right to make their own health decisions, and government bodies cannot stand between a woman and her doctor. I proudly stand up, today and every day, for the right of every woman to live her life and make her own choices.”
The forum will be held this Thursday, June 30 at 6:30 p.m. at LA Mission College. The flier is attached with additional information.

Hope to see you there!
