My Top 3 Priorities

  • To rebuild the middle class with good jobs that provide benefits to workers and their families.
  • To fight back against Trump's anti-immigrant agenda by allowing all local families to live and work in our community, regardless of immigration status.
  • To protect future generations from the harmful effects of climate change.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

 

When you first voted for me to represent you in the State Assembly, I promised to help create better jobs, protect immigrant families, and work towards opportunity for all our communities.

With your support, we’re making real progress.

We raised the minimum wage and passed laws to make sure every worker earns paid sick leave and overtime pay. We’ve strengthened social security and Medicare.

We have fought back against the Trump agenda, and passed laws to ensure immigrants can report crimes and interact with police without fear of being deported.

And, we have registered more citizens to vote than ever before in California.

We’ve done a lot. But there is so much more to do. I hope I will have your vote to continue the progress we are making.
