My Top 3 Priorities

  • Guaranteed Healthcare for All. SB 562, the Healthy California Act, will create a single-payer system that will cover every Californian regardless of income, improve overall access, lower individual costs, and reduce the burden on employers.
  • We must solve California's housing emergency. Communities are stronger when we live where we work. Commuting accelerates climate change and takes a toll on our financial resources, our communities, our families, and our quality of life.
  • Increased investment in K-12 public schools and public school teachers and a return to California's original promise of tuition-free college, trade or technical school. We must invest in our kids--not saddle them with crushing debt.
