California’s Assembly District 5
I am running for CA State Assembly District 5, which encompasses 9 counties in the Central Valley, Foothills and Mountain Rural areas of the Central Sierra Nevada. The 9 rural Counties include: all of Alpine County, Amador County, Calaveras County, Madera County, Mariposa County, Mono County, Tuolumne County, and nearly 70% of El Dorado County and 7% of Placer County. Distinctive areas of the district include Gold County Towns along highway 49 which have wineries, hotels, restaurants and local shopping and the beautiful High Sierra Nevada Mountains, Lakes, Rivers, and Forests and high Desert of the eastern Sierra Nevada. The District has many tourist destinations to Federal, State and Local Parks for enjoyment, recreation and camping including: John Muir Trail, Yosemite National Park, Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, Big Trees State Park, Bodie SHP, Columbia State Park, Mariposa Big Trees, Mono Lake Tufa SNR, and Mammoth Lakes, DL Bliss State Park and South Lake Tahoe Parks and much more.
Assembly District 5 includes some of California’s wealthiest residential communities to some of the poorest with all rural, small town cities including: Amador City, Angels Camp, Auburn, Bridgeport, Chowchilla, Coarsegold, Ione, Jackson, Madera, Mammoth Lakes, Mariposa, Murphys, Oakhurst, Placerville, Plymouth, San Andreas, Sonora, South Lake Tahoe, Sutter Creek, Twain Hart, Tuolumne City and many others, including unincorporated areas of the counties. It is my deep love of the mountains, rural family agriculture, small towns, the region’s diverse people and top notch travel destinations that I want to run for public office to protect, foster and preserve the health, happiness, and prosperity of our district’s Environmental Ecosystems, High Quality Pre-K-College/Technical Education, and help to provide Good Jobs, the world’s 6th largest Economy ought to provide, with a special focus on including Health Care for all. As your new representative to the California Legislature, I will listen to people and not corporate lobbyists, and will be transparent and accessible with all of my constituents, the public and the press.
