My Top 3 Priorities

  • (1) Reverse big money politics and restore representational self-government.. Prioritize our national budget for communities, job growth, and people’s futures, not corporate subsidies and tax breaks.
  • (2) Bring resources to our district to fund infrastructure for water, transportation, and public safety; update industries like agriculture to healthier, sustainable practices; and create new jobs and opportunities by facing our climate challenges.
  • (3) Protect liberties and provide justice for all, continue to protect and care for workers, consumers, veterans, our young and elderly, all genders, all ethnicities, and our immigrants. We can ensure living wages and health care for all.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Pay-to-play politics and corporate funding for political candidates has corrupted our self-governance.  We need to hit the reset button, elect qualified people from our communities to represent us, reverse or supersede Citizens United, move to publicly funded elections, and restore representational government.
