As a thirty-year law enforcement officer and founding Mayor of Elk Grove, I spent my career on the front lines, fighting for safer communities, more opportunities for young people, and good-paying jobs with a future.

As your Assemblymember since 2014, during mobile district office hours throughout the district, at fairs and farmers markets, and in meetings with countless local constituents, I have heard your concerns and acted on them — from business owners and farmers coping with labor shortages and foreign competition, to seniors and young people struggling to find affordable housing, and parents coping with the rising cost of health care and child care.

In the State Assembly, a particular legislative focus of mine has been protecting victims of sexual assault and giving law enforcement the tools to crack down on sexual offenders. And I have been a staunch and vocal opponent of the Twin Tunnels project since its inception.

I am proud to be endorsed by the California Democratic Party, teachers, police and fire, state employees, elected officials in Sacramento, Elk Grove, Galt and Lodi, and hundreds of your friends and neighbors.
