My Top 3 Priorities

  • We need a real plan to tackle the rising inflation that's eating into the paychecks of working class Americans. I will fight for policies that support working-class residents and small businesses hurt by the pandemic and agressive lockdown policies.
  • Promoting public safety is the utmost importance. I will work to ensure law enforcement has the tools and analytical resources to keepour communities safe and not polticize our safety.
  • California has some of the lowest literacy rates in the nation. I will fight for the rights of parents to choose the best educational path for their children and will look for opportunities to expand school choice
