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 I have heard your concerns during mobile district office hours, at fairs and farmers markets, and in meetings with countless local constituents, and I’ve 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 healthcare and childcare.

In the State Assembly, I’ve fought for better wages and eliminating pay discrimination for women, protecting pensions and benefits, and bringing good-paying jobs to the area. I voted to fund local transportation projects, combat climate change, keep e-cigarettes out of the hands of minors, provide affordable housing for veterans and residents, and deliver a new homeless shelter with comprehensive health services and a new food bank. A particular legislative focus is 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 shipping our water south via the tunnel.

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.
