Friends:
 
I answer this call to run because I believe in representative democracy.  I believe with every election season and subsequent governing term, public faith in our institutions should improve as it is made clear through legislative activity that the concerns of the people to whom we commit representation are addressed.  For San Diego North County and Temecula, I am ready to take the cause to Sacramento and bring the change needed for our communities.   
 
I see many factors that contribute to waning faith, depressed voter turnout, and general political apathy.  In the coming months, I will address the divisive nature of our discourse and the belief by many citizens that their elected officials primarily represent those with the deepest pockets. Too many feel that their voices go unheard and overlooked.  
 
It is my mission and intention to be an advocate for every resident of the 75th Assembly District regardless of political leaning.  I believe in running a clean, higher-purposed campaign that highlights the most important issues we agree on and provides ground for meaningful and constructive conversations on ones where we do not agree.  
 
It is with this spirit that I commence on this journey to earn your support for our people-first campaign.  This campaign is not about me, it’s about us, and it’s about YOU and your family and friends.  So please provide feedback, encouraging or critical.  I look forward to hearing from you all and meeting you on the campaign trail!

Ending Homelessness in California

San Diego has the fourth largest homeless population in the nation after New York, Los Angeles and Seattle — developed over many years and will take many years to solve. San Diego County had 17,500 people cycle through local homelessness programs between October 2015 and September 2016, far more than the roughly 8,700 the region’s annual homeless count in January has found the last two years.San Diego already suffers from a relative lack of funding because of the federal gov...ernment’s formula for doling out money to address homelessness, which provides San Diego the 22nd most money in the nation despite having the fourth largest homeless population. Until the federal government gets a clue, we have to continue to lead in California -- Homelessness is no exception.


According to the Regional Task Force on the Homeless Report dated April 2017, the numbers of chronically homeless persons in Inland North San Diego County (Escondido, San Marcos, Fallbrook) and Inland Orange County (Temecula) are increasing. The numbers of chronically homeless persons who are unsheltered is also increasing. Veterans make up 12% of our homeless population.


I support San Diego's central intake center which is expected to open in 2019, including a hotline for available beds, adding a few hundred more temporary shelter beds, renovating a downtown facility where homeless people can shower and expanding the Downtown Partnership’s family reunification program. As your state representaive, I will work to find common ground solutions with the cities I represent, the property owners in our region and the organizations who will continue to spearhead the efforts. In California, there is no reason for any human being to be homeless.

Record heat and climate change policy

We will be experiencing record high temperatures in San Diego County this summer. It seems like every year we reach new extremes in our weather patterns.


15 years ago scientists were fighting the political forces to resist the data. Of course, the fossil fuel industry was engrossed in an "alternative facts" campaign to promulgate the notion that earth's climate is ever changing and that human activity does not matter so continue drilling and burning those fossil fuels.


California is leading the nation in developing a comprehensive set of solutions to reduce global warming pollution in the state. The foundation for the state’s pollution-fighting activities is a 2006 law, the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32), which calls for reducing the state’s global warming emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.


I will support our global participation with reducing our emissions and building a renewable energy system that will carry California into the next century. This is what fearless leadership requires.

Environmental Justice

California leads the country for high environmental standards. We must not lose sight of this leadership role no matter how loudly the polluters scream. When we come together, we're unstoppable.

Support AB 14

I support campaign finance reform period. In California, we can lead the country on this critical matter. Forcing disclosure of dark money is a good place to start.

Support AB 14.

SB562 Passes the Senate... On to the Assembly

On a 23 to 14 vote, the California Senate put their stamp of approval on SB 562, a Medicare for all-type/single payer bill that would bring the dream of guaranteeing health care to all Californians – without the devastating out of pocket costs that force millions to skip needed care even if they are already paying premiums to insurance companies
