After a yearlong stint at war in Afghanistan, Assemblyman Jeff Gorell can unpack his bags now in Camarillo. He expects to finish processing paperwork today to transition out of active military duty.
“I’m back in California, I’m home,” Gorell told The Bee. “It’s great to be back.”
The 41-year-old, first-term Republican lawmaker expects to return to the Capitol on April 9, when the Assembly reconvenes after a weeklong recess.
“I’ll be there, rocking and rolling,” Gorell said. “I’m looking forward to getting back in the mix.”
Meanwhile, Gorell can spend time with his wife, Laura, and with their two young children.
Welcome home, Jeff!
There will be a welcome home celebration next week at California Lutheran University.
