My Top 3 Priorities

  • Guarantee healthcare to all Californians, as a right by drafting legislation to have our state be the first, in our great union to implement a universal single-payer healthcare system
  • Protecting our environment by placing a ban on hydraulic fracking, implementing a carbon tax to punish polluters and spark a green technology revolution that will create thousands of good-paying jobs.
  • Improving our educational system by increasing per-student spending, holding charter schools accountable, and making public colleges and universities tuition-free once again.
