My Top 3 Priorities

  • Supporting Candidates and Elected Officials who have the best interest of the people as their guiding light and not self interest.
  • Bringing diversity of thought, background and experiences to the Central Committee.
  • Working together with other members of the Central Committee to ensure the priorities of the CA Democratic Party are representative of the people of which it is comprised.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

The gap between those who have and those who do not is continuing to grow in our communities.  If we do not elect people who will guard the interests of those who may be able to guard them, we are in serious trouble.  When Big Business, Corporate Interests and Elected Officials are aligned; there is a need to look to those not beholden to others for fair representation.  Please visit
