EDUCATION

 

As an educator, I believe that every student deserves a quality education regardless of birth or circumstance. Students should have the support to afford the college or vocational training of their choosing. We need to make sure that students’ focus is on their education not their tuition. No student should stop going to school because they cannot afford it. Further, we need to change the perception that community college or vocational training is a second class education. I pledge to be your champion for education in Sacramento.

 

 

 

For Our Community

I Will...

Support an expansion of Cal Grants to low and middle income students.

 

Support expanded funding for community colleges and vocational training.

 

Support funding for Music and Arts in K-12 schools.

 

Fight for students who have an absent parent to emancipate from that parent’s taxes.

 

Ensure we continue to earn our reputation as a shining star for the American education system.

HEALTHCARE

I believe that quality, affordable healthcare is a right of every Californian. Our citizens deserve better local assistance. I believe that MediCal recipients need improved access to hospitals and clinics inside our district. I believe the costs of prescription drugs are too high and need to be renegotiated. Senior citizens and those with chronic illnesses should not have to worry about whether or not they can afford the medication they need. I pledge to fight for healthcare that does not break the bank for the people of our district.

 

 

 

For Our Community

I Will...

Support MediCal recipients to have more access to hospitals and clinics.

 

Fight for California to be able to renegotiate the costs of prescription drugs.

 

Expand funding to enforce the laws that protect those in hospice and nursing home care from abuse and neglect.

TRANSPORTATION

I believe that the people of our district should have access to efficient public transportation. The people of our district should be able to get to their jobs and families without worrying that they missed the last bus or train. I also believe that our growing train system should be safe for everyone. This includes our train engineers, conductors, and station staff.

 

For Our Community

I Will...

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

The prison system is broken, and we need to provide avenues for non-violent offenders to become productive members of society. We have too many nonviolent drug offenders sitting in jail cells who should be in programs to rehabilitate them and make something of themselves.

 

We need to make sure that, if you’re a non-violent offender, you have access to vocational and educational programs while in prison. People with bankable skills have an easier time staying out of prison.  However, we need to keep the most dangerous people out of our communities, so we can protect our civilians, police, and first responders.

 

We have to prevent people from coming in, and we have to help people from going back.

 

 

Support the gold line expansion through East Los Angeles into Whittier

 

Support expansion of dedicated bus lanes in the district

 

Fight to ensure that our train systems and stations are safe for our citizens and train employees. By expanding funding for transportation safety officers and securing our stations and platforms, we ensure the staff have all the tools and training needed to protect and serve our citizens.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Our Community

I Will...

 

 

Support drug rehabilitation programs for nonviolent offenders and for drug court to be mandatory.

 

Support policies that treat drug addicts like patients instead of prisoners.

 

Support an expansion of vocational programs for inmates to keep them in a job and out of prison.

 

Fight to reform AB 109 to fix our current prison system to keep violent offenders off the streets.
