My Top 3 Priorities

  • Jobs and the economy. Too many Californians have low-wage jobs, jobs without benefits, or are working only part-time because they can't find full-time employment. Small businesses face paperwork, regulatiory and taxation burdens that must be eased.
  • Education. A good education system is the foundation of a properous economy. I will work hard to keep the cost of college affordable to middle-class families.
  • Transportation and infrastructure. The 29th Senate District is a suburban commuter area, with many traffic congestion and gridlock problems. I will fight to ensure the district receives its fair share of transportation funding.
