Political Philosophy


The Napa County EMS Agency, in concert with numerous EMS providers (e.g. Napa Fire Department, Angwin Community Ambulance, AMR, Queen of the Valley Medical Center, etc.) have made an incredible difference in our community by bringing awareness to the importance of “Hand’s Only CPR”. This effort has undoubtedly increased our community’s health and empowered every citizen with lifesaving skills. Senate Bill 658 and Assembly Bill 1719 (recently signed by Governor Brown) collectively mandate specific school district requirements including AED instruction/utilization and CPR education as a requirement to graduate high school. Allured stated “I am positioned in a perfect place to not only understand the importance of these bills, but also capable of ensuring compliance. In fact, I’d take these requirements to the next level and assist the school district with staff/student training and obtaining administrative commitment. I'd also like to screen high-school athletes for cardiac abnormalities, which may prevent pre-mature death and/or health complications for students.


In addition, like so many others, Allured shares the passion to ensure our students are offered healthier foods. “When sugary drinks are more accessible and cheaper than water...something is wrong!”, Allured stated. “Seriously, my daughter won't even eat the pizza! Our household has personally struggled with weight and general health issues due to poor eating habits. It has been a long emotional battle and one we fight daily. I want to ensure our students are educated on the importance of what they consume. This goes beyond mandating the Board offer better choices...there is a huge public health campaign at play. I would be very successful in helping community advocates such as Katie Aaron and Laura Miller carry this extremely important torch”.  


Finally, as alluded to above, the NVUSD is fraught with student disparities. Allured will fight to ensure an equitable learning environment for all students and from ALL demographics, especially among Latino learners. “Students need to feel safe, comfortable and respected. I strongly support pilot programs such as the one at Vintage High School surrounding cultural competency and relevant learning”, Allured said.


Allured is dedicated to serving our students/teachers and unequivocally understands the direct impact our public education has upon the community. “I’m hungry for progression, change and transparency while our students…our students are simply hungry for healthier foods”.


Allured is endorsed by the Napa County EMS Society
