Event Report

We had a small, last minute event in the City of Los Alamitos. It was the only event in Orange County and was well attended by local EV drivers from Los Alamitos, Cypress, Stanton, Long Beach, as well as the Tesla Owners Club of OC. Other drivers came from as far away as San Diego and Laguna Beach.

Local dignitaries included the Mayor of Los Alamitos Shelley Hasselbrink, and Council members Warren Kusumoto and Josh Wilson. Also in attendance was SCAQMD Board Member the Honorable Dwight Robinson.

The event far exceeded expectations and many of the attendees stayed for the entire time to educate those interested in EVs, and exchange ideas and tips with current EV owners.

A local news crew interviewed several participants and put together a 3 minute video on YouTube.
