My Top 3 Priorities

  • I believe in universal healthcare & Medicare for all: everyone deserves affordable health insurance that is there when they need it most.
  • Bringing good jobs to the central valley: Let's make the Valley the agricultural technology capital of the nation and work to make college and technical training programs accessible.
  • Comprehensive immigration reform: I want to protect dreamers, provide a pathway to citizenship, and ensure the immigrants who are the fabric of the Central Valley are supported.

Biography

More than a century ago, my great-great grandfather joined a wagon train to Manteca, started a farm, and laid the foundations of a better life for the future generations of his family. I grew up in Turlock, went to public school, and worked my way through college and business school. I’ve spent my career helping entrepreneurs and new companies grow their businesses and turn their ideas into engines of economic growth.

I want the Central Valley to share in that economic growth. For too long, the Central Valley has been left behind. In fact, if the Central Valley were a state, we would be the poorest in the nation. That’s unacceptable, and I’m running for Congress because we can and must do better.

In Congress, my mission will be to bring more good-paying jobs and more investment to the Valley - so a child growing up today can have the same opportunities I had as a kid. I will work with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to help our local farms and businesses prosper by investing in education and infrastructure and helping to create more good paying jobs. I will also stand up to President Trump when he is wrong, and fight his agenda when it threatens our values and our families.  

Together, we can defend our values and strengthen our economy.
