Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Now is the time for California to work for all of us: families, communities, small businesses, and all who want to make a better life for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.
I believe that progress begins when we listen respectfully, empower each other, and create a more open and inclusive society so all can thrive. I will work with my constituents and their cities, counties, and the state to build bridges so that we can address the challenges we face. I will work to lift up those in need and create an equitable environment where everyone can succeed.
To do so, we must:
Support students, teachers, and schools
Address our housing and transportation crisis
Reform our criminal justice system
Ensure equitable healthcare for all
Protect and preserve our environment for the future
We can no longer afford to wait for future generations to manage these crises. We must take on these challenges together so that we can build a stronger, safer society. Together we can improve the lives of our children, our neighbors and our communities.
