My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fighting to bring down costs and protect access to health care for all Americans.
  • Standing up for veterans to make sure they have access to the resources they deserve.

Biography

I'm a fourth-generation Inland Empire resident raising my family here in the community I grew up in. At the age of twelve, I started working with my grandfather at the San Bernardino County Courthouse cafeteria. I then put myself through college with the assistance of student loans and federal grants, and went on to establish a life in public service to give back to the community that raised me.

My goal has always been to serve as a voice for middle-class families throughout San Bernardino County, which is why I'm focused on policies to create jobs, support local students, and protect critical programs for veterans and seniors.

As the Mayor of Redlands, I worked to gain a reputation for bipartisanship and have always been committed to making our region a better place to live, work and raise a family.

Political Beliefs

 

I believe that we can accomplish more by working together. As your Representative, I’ll continue to make sure that we honor the promises we’ve made to our seniors by protecting Medicare and Social Security, work to make college more affordable by lowering the student loan burden and make our country and communities safer by ensuring law enforcement have the resources they need.

And I’ve been standing up to President Trump’s agenda to take health care away from millions of Americans, cut taxes for wealthy corporations on the backs of the middle class and build a wall on our southern border while separating children from their parents.

I am asking for your vote so we can continue expanding opportunities for Inland Empire families while standing up to President Trump’s dangerous policies and divisive rhetoric that threatens our security and well-being. Thank you for your support.
