🍎📚 Education is the fundamental investment we make for a strong tomorrow. I am an avid supporter of our public schools from pre-K through college or vocational graduation. My eldest son and his wife are both public high school teachers in San Diego. My daughter is a special education teacher of young children in Oakland. Their tireless dedication to their students inspires me and confirms the ideal that by investing in education for the next generation, including higher education, we set the pace to bring innovation, research, discovery, and tremendous economic development to our State.
I have been fighting for a fair deal for working families and the voiceless in our society my whole life. If elected, I will take the fight to Sacramento. I ask for your Vote on November 6.
510 days ago, this campaign was launched to bring real legislative leadership in Sacramento to our District. We are now down to the final week. This is my final pitch of the final inning of a long season. ⚾️
Thanks to the amazing contributors, volunteers and activists in our communities, our message of unity has been heard. If elected, I am ready:
to fight to deliver single-payer healthcare to all Californians,
to fight for our public schools and the teachers and employees that deliver education to our kids,
to fight for our planet’s future by ending our dependence on fossil fuels and building a sustainable clean energy economy,
to fight for affordable housing that delivers smart growth solutions to traffic mitigation and homelessness, and,
to fight for campaign finance reform and election integrity, the heart of our democracy.
These are big ideas for an age of new governance. But we deserve it, and more. Let’s finish strong. Let’s end the divisions and divisive politics of our time and march forward together as one District family. Let’s all be winners on November 6th.
Our region is electorally controlled by women and GenZ IF they VOTE! #bluewave2018
Contributing to community comes in many forms. For me it has been coaching and officiating youth soccer and youth baseball spanning two decades. I also served on the Board for Little League for 2 years. Working with children in sports is especially rewarding. Watching them grow, working together, while developing athletic and leadership skills has been the privilege of my adult life. Hearing former players call me “Coach” years later is a great honor and reminder of the important role the unsung heroes in the community have in shaping the future and instilling into the next generation the core values of hard work, perseverance , integrity , and the upmost reverence and respect for your competition – because like you, they had the courage to step into the arena and give it their best shot, win lose or draw. That is sportsmanship. #Community #Teamwork
🌎 ☀️🔥🌪💡Our health and climate are inextricably linked. From polluted air quality to shrinking food and water supplies, communities across California—and around the world—are already experiencing climate change’s harmful health impacts. The looming effects upon California’s communities, particularly those that are disproportionately vulnerable, are becoming increasingly urgent and severe.
