My Top 3 Priorities

  • New Voices in Alameda County: Alameda has the honor of being one of the most diverse counties in the country. With our cultural and economic diversity, we can be the example for the country on how to build inclusive party.
  • Sustainable Development: We are developing at a rate that will max out our space. The most troubling part is that our land will be fully developed, but our communities will not be. We need leaders who will address our housing crisis.
  • Green Energy Initiatives: Our planet is suffering from Climate Crisis and every level of government needs to act quickly and to be bold with new efforts to save our resources.

I would be honored to continue to serve you as a representative from Assembly District 20 on the Alameda County Central Committee. Since 2016, I’ve attended every meeting of the California Democratic Party and have been elected Chair of our Veterans Caucus and our E-Board Representative.

As Veteran Caucus Chair, we have held joint meetings with the Arab-American and Disabilities Caucuses and created a sub-committee dedicated to bringing home Deported Veterans.

I’ve also been humbled to serve as Congressman Ro Khanna’s Delegate to our Alameda County Central Committee. There, I’ve helped push for greater transparency, and I’m happy to report that our meetings are now documented on Facebook Livestream.

In Fremont, I’ve now lead two clean-money campaigns for City Council. Both on platforms that are unapologetically Progressive on every issue. Our last campaign earned the 4th largest amount of votes in the city, but due to our district election system, we did not earn one of the 4 seats available.
