I understand the importance of our region to the success of California and the United States, and I want our government to better support our hard work through good-quality healthcare and education, living-wage jobs, twenty-first century infrastructure, smart environmental management, and retirement security. As a single mother who raised three young adults in Plumas County, I know how challenging it can be to find success in our rural communities.

We can create a New Rural Economy in Northern California by collaborating with our small businesses and entrepreneurs and building upon the District’s unique resources and character. We can put sustainable forestry front and center, reducing wildfires and protecting watersheds while preserving ecosystems, creating jobs, and keeping public lands accessible for recreation. We can develop new local industries, making products that help us respond to climate change. We can bring back rural communities as centers for arts and culture, services, and remote work, all supported by reliable high-speed internet. Let’s make that our reality.
