My Top 3 Priorities

  • I will fight to increase funding for pre-K, K-12 schools, community colleges, and will make college more affordable and accessible for California students.
  • I am working to bring new jobs to the area and invest in workforce training. I support middle class families and will tackle income inequality. We need to make sure our young people have the training for the jobs of the future.
  • I will promote and support Affordable housing. I have supported and approved many affordable housing projects during my time in city government and will continue to champion affordable housing in the future.
