My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public education: We need to ensure that every child has the opportunity to gain access to the resources they need for their academic and professional future.
  • Affordability for working families: Working families are getting priced out of this district, unable to buy or rent in the communities they’ve lived in for decades. We have to address the rising cost of housing and do more to create economic equity
  • Criminal Justice: We must do more to level the playing field by ending the school-to-prison pipeline, reforming our criminal justice system and giving every Californian the same fair shot at success.
