Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Educación: Como maestra de escuela primaria de Fullerton durante 30 años, creo en nuestro sistema de escuelas públicas. Lucharé por un mayor financiamiento para las escuelas, apoyaré el control local, ampliaré el acceso a la educación temprana y mejoraré la seguridad escolar
  • Economía: Como presidenta del Comité de la Asamblea de Empleo, Desarrollo Económico y Economía, me sigo enfocando en promover oportunidades económicas para todos los californianos, y en particular para aquellos que no se han beneficiado del reciente crecimiento económico.
  • Veteranos: Debemos honrar a los veteranos que se sacrificaron por este país. He aprobado leyes que mejoran la supervisión de los programas que brindan servicios de salud mental y que promueven pequeñas empresas propiedad de veteranos.
