Keep neighborhoods safe and maintain fast emergency response times

As a City Councilmember, I worked with local firefighters, paramedics, and residents to reduce emergency response times. In the State Assembly, I will strengthen our unique communities, by working with law enforcement to keep our families and neighborhoods safe, and ensuring first responders have the tools, training, and technology that they need to effectively do their jobs.

Protect our beaches, coastline, open space, and natural environment

I have a proven record of working to protect open space, preserve beach access, build new walking and biking paths, and ensure that any new development is compatible with our neighborhoods as a City Councilmember. As your next State Assemblymember, I will work to protect our coastline, invest in renewable energy technologies, and advance progressive policies to keep our air and water clean.

Help San Diego County’s businesses grow and create quality jobs

Thriving local businesses are the heart of our communities. As a small business owner myself, I know how important local talent is for business success. In the State Assembly, I will work to ensure the training of the workforce of today and tomorrow as well as to help our entrepreneurial sector go from idea to proof of concept and then grow within our region, especially in clean, bio and high tech sectors.

Fully fund our schools and reducing barriers to college

As someone who became civically engaged to protect the kids walking and biking to school, I am a mother and former PTA leader who is strongly supported by local teachers because I am committed to fully funding our neighborhood schools and expanding access to after-school programs. I also support making community college tuition free, and finding new ways to reduce the financial barriers that prevent students from attending college.

Secure North County’s fair share of funding to mitigate traffic

As a City Councilmember, I know one of our communities’ biggest complaints is about traffic congestion. On the Council, we have worked to decrease cut-through traffic, increase road safety and fund more active transportation. In the State Assembly, I will continue to champion making a real difference in our lives by funding the transit and transportation projects most important to the everyday lives of our residents.

Ensure our veterans have the services and support they’ve earned

The granddaughter and niece of veterans, I strongly support those who have fought for our freedom and democracy. In Sacramento, I will continue our region’s strong history of policies that support veterans and our military families, including streamlining integration of state and military bureaucracy, recognizing out-of-state certification for military families, training for post-service jobs in our region and good, quality local schools for our children.

Host town hall meetings and office hours in every city in our district

State legislation can be sometimes so opaque, so ensuring that voters in our district understand the opportunities and challenges of our state issues is important to me. Our district not only deserves a representative in Sacramento who reflects the values of our district, but will also be accessible to all the people in our district. In the State Assembly, I will host town halls in our district as well as hold office hours in every city in our district.

Increase transparency and reduce the influence of big money in politics

A strong democracy is based on transparency and accountability. As a Councilmember, I helped increase transparency, inclusion and the voice of our community into our deliberative processes. In the State Assembly, I will continue this tradition to ensure that every step is as transparent as possible and that Sacramento is held accountable to the voice of the people in our district.
