General Election: November 6, 2018
Change is needed now.
Our beautiful northern California district is rich with resources and vibrant rural communities, and yet, we have been forgotten. Because of political polarization and the toxic effects of money in politics, our voice is no longer represented in Washington, and we need change now. Seven of our eleven counties are listed within the 15 poorest counties in California. Our schools and hospitals are at risk, our infrastructure is aging and dangerous, and our basic services are being threatened. These are the concerns that people of all backgrounds have expressed to me as I’ve traveled across our vast district -- listening to, and learning from, constituents in our 11 counties. It’s time for change.
California district 1 needs a representative who will fight for us - the people who live in each of our northern California communities. Not powerful, wealthy special interests.
We are all inherently equal in rights and dignity. Advocating for people starts with setting aside our preconceived notions and authentically listening. This is what I will do as your representative. In my conversations with people throughout our district, I have found that, despite political viewpoints, we have many more commonalities than differences. We love our country and our communities. We want more jobs in our region, high quality and affordable education, a healthy environment for future generations, and high quality healthcare without going bankrupt.
Our intense political polarization and the toxic effects of money in politics have caused absolutism and gridlock in congress. If you send me to Washington I will work for and fight for every single person who lives in this district. We are united. We are at a unique moment in history, where we have a real chance to come together, and make our shared claim that we deserve better representation. Stop corruption. Save democracy.
Just and Inclusive Communities.
I will work for you – the people of district 1 – and not the corporate money interests in Washington. Together we’ll create a future for the North State where people don’t die because of a lack of health insurance, where the color of your skin and your socio-economic status doesn’t determine your future, and where the dignity and worth of all humans is respected.
