Happy Holidays from Supervisor Hagman


As the Christmas season approaches, I am taking a moment to count my blessings: 

First, I’m blessed by my wife and children. I’ve never been the same since the kids were born and they made me a better man. The blessing that is my family has fostered empathy for families and communities in need. This in turn creates in me a desire to make life better for those around me through public service.

I’m blessed to represent the Fourth Supervisorial District, the economic engine of San Bernardino County and my home for over a quarter century. There’s no place I’d rather be and no finer constituents to serve anywhere. 

I’m blessed, grateful and proud to be an American. I hope to play a small part in moving this great nation one step forward into the future. 

Looking to heaven, I’m humbly grateful to God for his favor and for sending his Son, whose birth we celebrate during this season, to bring us life and love. This Christmas, more than ever, I’m aware of this nation’s need for His gift of love and peace.

I hope in this busy season, which can become so focused on material things, you will be able to take time to count your own blessings, and share them with friends and family in word and deed. May you and those around you be as richly blessed this Christmas season. 




Upcoming Events




Della Robbia Wreath Production Tour


Boys Republic recently celebrated its 110th year in service as a private, non-profit, non-sectarian school, and treatment community for troubled teens.  Students are referred to Boys Republic by probation officers and juvenile court judges.  These are typically young folks who've had more than one journey through our juvenile justice system.  The earlier journeys had not produced the changes needed to become a good citizen and a productive member of our communities.  

On Wednesday, November 29th Supervisor Curt Hagman's District Office staff toured the World Famous Della Robbia Wreath production building located at the Boys Republic in Chino Hills. During the four weeks of wreath production, students and Boys Republic employees assemble, package and ship about 3,000 wreaths per day.  This real life program gives teens an opportunity to learn important work-related attitudes and habits. 

Wreath production was established in 1923 by Boys Republic founder Margaret B. Fowler to serve as a work experience program for students of the non-profit school.  The wreaths were patterned after a ceramic design created by the Della Robbia family of Florence, Italy. The first year of the Boys Republic Della Robbia campaign, only a few dozen wreaths were produced and sold on the streets of Pasadena.  The program grew to meet increasing demand and today they produce and ship more than 50,000 wreaths each year to destinations throughout the United States and around the world, including the White House.



Team Hagman Holiday Open House


On Thursday, December 7, Supervisor Curt Hagman hosted his Christmas Open House at Chino Hills City Hall. The event was open to the public and was attended by 200 plus guests.  Supervisor Hagman was able to visit with constituents and local electeds at this annual event.  He gave a brief holiday welcome and talked about the many successes in the Fourth District.  Near the end of the evening, Santa took a break from his North Pole duties and made a special appearance at the reception.
