Millions of Californians are excluded from the political process by politicians who practice extreme partisanship, favor special interests, and use their positions for personal gain. In 2016 alone, California lawmakers accepted over half a million dollars in gifts, many of which came from individuals, organizations, and corporations that employ lobbyists. By representing the interests of a few at the expense of the majority, they encourage a culture of political apathy. We deserve better! We deserve a representative that prioritizes our interests. I will devote my administration to providing every member of our community with true representation. I will fight for your betterment without regard for partisan politics, and will not be swayed by special interests. As a testament to my promise, I am video documenting my entire campaign, and will continue to do so throughout my administration. This footage will be made available online, thereby ensuring that you know exactly what is taking place in my office, every single day.
Californians are facing the largest gas tax increase in our state’s history. Yet, California’s state government spending data is more inaccessible than any other state in the country. A lack of transparency equates to a lack of accountability. We deserve to know where our money is going. We deserve better! If elected, in addition to video documenting my administration, I will work to develop a comprehensive and interactive website, that allows the public to keep track of state government spending.
Overcoming Obstacles to Success
All Californians, regardless of ethnicity, level of income or education, face obstacles to success. Unfortunately, a lack of access to basic needs, such as affordable housing, health insurance, and education, places success beyond the reach of far too many. Although we have agencies that are responsible for assisting the public in overcoming such barriers, they are largely undermanned, poorly funded, and lacking proper supervision. If elected, I will fight to ensure the people of Assembly District 9 have the tools and resources they need, so they may have the opportunity to earn their success. We need to make the system work for the betterment of the public, by ensuring existing government agencies are properly administrated, and that each has adequate personnel, supervision, and accountability. As your assembly member, I will be your advocate. You will always be welcome to visit our capitol and district offices to speak with me, or knowledgeable members of my staff. Your concerns will be heard and addressed. I ask for your vote in the upcoming primary election, on June 5, 2018, because you deserve better!
