Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Educación: Cada californiano merece una educación de clase mundial ofrecida por nuestro sistema de escuelas públicas. Estoy dedicado a invertir recursos para brindarles a los educadores y padres de nuestras comunidades los medios para garantizar que nuestros estudiantes tengan una ventaja competitiva.
  • Seguridad pública: Mantener nuestros vecindarios, escuelas y familias seguros es una preocupación principal en nuestro nuevo contexto de mayor tecnología, crímenes de odio y tragedias de tirador activo.
  • Cuidados de la salud: Cada californiano debe tener acceso a cuidados de la salud asequibles que proporcionen pruebas de detección y atención preventiva para apoyar la salud y evitar impactos financieros duraderos a las familias.
