“I am a proud Californian, union member and longtime resident of District 30 who comes from a family of unwavering service to our country and community.
I firmly believe in standing up for what is right, ensuring equality and expanding opportunities for all.
I’m running for Congress because it’s time to restore faith in government by offering reasonable, innovative and compassionate solutions to our country’s most pressing issues.
And it’s time for new and passionate leaders who can help move our country forward. Leaders who want to see the government operating at maximum capacity, unhindered by political divisions and special interests.
Please join our movement!”
