It is an honor to represent the 24th District in the California State Assembly.
While Congress and the Trump Administration remain mired in gridlock, I’m proud of the real work we have done for Californians in the State Assembly. We have passed landmark legislation to address California’s severe housing crisis, repair our crumbling transportation infrastructure, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to fight climate change.
I had more bills signed than any other assemblymember in 2019, providing doctors and mental health professionals with the training they need to help reduce gun violence in our communities, improving access to justice for sexual assault survivors, cutting bureaucracy to maximize CalFresh benefits for low-income families, and helping public agencies preserve open space and habitat.
I’ve been a leader on protecting our elections from cyber threats, creating the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity and protecting voters from efforts to deceive them.
As a champion of public education, I’m leading the effort to restore the promise of an accessible, affordable, high quality public higher education to every California student.
I’m also heading up the efforts to ensure a complete census count. California is conducting a historic outreach campaign to ensure that all of our residents, regardless of immigration status, are counted in the 2020 Census. Congressional representation and billions of dollars in federal funding are at stake.
There is more work to do, which is why I humbly ask for your support.
