I believe that three of the most important issues we face are:
Making sure that everyone has access to a first class public education, regardless of social or financial circumstance/situation;
Restructuring the economy for benefit of working families so there will be good paying jobs for everyone and making sure that our kids won’t have to “move away” to prosper economically;
Reforming politics by getting big money out and cleaning up gridlock and corruption.
I will listen to you. I will work with you to build upon our shared values, values that have made America the world leader that it has been in our common dreams and prosperity. We will work together to foster peace and make all people’s lives better by:
providing quality, affordable healthcare for all;
building a strong, shared local economy;
ensuring that our environment is strong and healthy;
restoring our forests and wildlands;
protecting our communities from wildfire by restoring a natural fire regime to our forests and wildlands;
ensuring clean water and air for all;
working together to build vibrant, sustainable communities that will work for all;
providing for the disadvantaged, including the disabled, seniors, and the unemployed or underemployed, and the homeless;
providing strong protections for civil and human rights; Constitution and bill of rights of the people with justice, progress and compassion
working together to ensure that everyone pays their fair share of tax
working to bring sustainable and affordable housing so our children can afford to live and work in our region and the homeless are also able to find a home and community services for health and jobs.
Lastly, but not least, I will strive to protect our public lands, which are more than 60% of Assembly District 5 in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, by combating Climate Change so that tourism, camping and the enjoyment of the outdoors, which is a large part of our state’s economy, stays strong as possible.
Our public land needs the benefit of scientists and healthy forest ecosystems and a representative who is going to ensure sustainability. This district provides the water for much of the state, including our largest cities, such as San Francisco, and also for our farms and ranches.
I believe there is no freedom when only the few prosper!
There is no question about it. I need name recognition in your counties. By the 6th of November, I hope to be on the minds of 150,000 voters throughout the nine counties of Assembly District 5. This is a daunting task, but I have got great supporters which will make all the difference in my campaign.
Here’s what I need from all of you:
Those who can afford to by a small yard sign ($16.00), please order one or more on my website link below and make a $16.00 donation.
If you want to order a medium (4×4@ $50 ea.) or larger (4×8 @$85 ea.) sign, then call me or Steve (559) 286-5788, signs are made at our union printer. We will deliver signs to your County Democratic Headquarters with permission or to your address with wooden posts upon request.
In order to avoid the possibility of theft and vandalism, I need assistance in locating private property where the owner will allow the large signs to be posted, but which is also highly visible and trafficked areas within major towns in each county. Please send “LARGE SIGN IDEAL LOCATION” information you may have with a general description and/or address and contact information to my email at email@example.com
In some cases, I may need help putting up larger signs, and so I am developing a team of volunteers with a truck and tools for putting posts and signs up in secure areas.
Thank you for helping to make my name more visible to all potential voters, and come November let’s flip AD 5 and turn it BLUE!

It was very exciting as a Region 4 Delegate and New Candidate for State Assembly, to meet the former Mayor of Los Angeles and a current Candidate for Governor of the State of California. Being down to earth, he bought us some yogurt at his fun event during the San Diego Democratic Convention February 23-25, 2018.
He was very friendly and offered to take our picture and said he would come to the central valley and further north in the state. He gave us a handshake, some good ideas for the campaign and a smile. Consequently, I hope to plan events with local groups very soon and hold him to his word to visit us. Can’t wait to cook up something fun! We are stronger by our diversity, healthcare, education, a strong economy and environment that works for everyone and he definitely knows this too! Indivisible ~ Si Se Puede
My first Speech which went okay, but I had the chance to meet some fantastic people and was honored to be a speaker. I had not yet memorized my speech and it was way too long, but the audience was kind.
