My Top 3 Priorities

  • Environment & Economy: To sustain our economy and ensure a livable future for our kids, we must phase out fossil fuels and direct investment toward smart infrastructure ⁠— micro-grids, rooftop solar w/ battery storage, regional transit systems, etc.
  • Homelessness & Housing: From a lack of affordable housing to lack of mental health service providers, California needs to spend our resources strategically and demand accountability from all actors — incl. local governments, private insurers, etc.
  • Education: From preschool to higher education, we need greater investment and accountability in California’s public education system to ensure that all residents have access to high-quality, affordable education and can thrive in the modern economy.
