In tough times like these, our state needs strong, experienced problem solvers to keep us moving forward.
Our region needs leaders who can help us grow our economy, restore funding for education, reduce traffic bottlenecks on our roads, and improve services for the most vulnerable among us: our children, elderly, and disabled. We also need someone to protect our water for our communities, farms, and vineyards.
For three years in the State Senate and six years in the Assembly, I’ve been working to solve these problems. Our economy is improving and the state is finally getting its fiscal house in order. But tremendous challenges remain.
While there are no easy answers, I can promise to work hard for you and continue bringing my experience and collaborative approach to produce the results you expect and deserve in Sacramento. I’ve forged bipartisan compromises – authoring over 70 laws signed by both Democratic and Republican Governors. I don’t let partisan gridlock get in my way.
Some of you know me from my prior work in Sacramento. This year a citizen-led redistricting process has brought many of you into a new district that I’m seeking to represent for the first time. Whether you are a long time friend or a new one, I pledge to work with you to improve the lives of everyone in California’s new 3rd State Senate District.
Thank you for your consideration.
