My Top 3 Priorities

  • Improve Public Education, by focusing on preparing children for school, helping students succeed in K-12, and increasing opportunities in higher education by boosting Cal Grants and enrollment in community colleges, Cal State, and UC systems.
  • Protect Our Natural Environment. Focus on climate resiliency, clean air and water, restoring endangered species, cleaning up our oceans and preparing for sea-level rise. Finding ways to transition from oil and gas production to renewable energy.
  • Create Economic Opportunity and Improve the Quality of Live for all Californians. Focus on public health and safety, a sustainable economy with respect for the environment and workers rights, and housing and job security.
