"For over 30 years, I have served Riverside County families as a classroom teacher, Community College Boardmember, and State Assemblymember. I have dedicated my life to preparing our children to succeed, improving our schools, creating new opportunities for middle-class families, and delivering results for our community.
As a classroom teacher and Community College Boardmember, I helped improve academic standards in the classroom, put more students on the path to college or a career, and invested in job-training programs to give more students the opportunity to succeed. I am proud of what we accomplished at the local level.
Yet, bad decisions and misplaced priorities in Sacramento were holding back Riverside County families. I ran for State Assembly to change that and bring a new set of priorities to Sacramento.
As your Assemblymember, I helped deliver the first on-time balanced state budget and surplus in over a decade; pay down our state debt and eliminate waste; secure over one billion dollars to improve classroom standards; pass the state water bond to fight the drought; deliver funding to open the Medical School at U-C Riverside; and create new tax credits that promote economic investment, new jobs, and make it easier for small businesses to grow.
As your State Assemblymember, I have worked tirelessly to deliver real improvements in our quality of life. I would be honored to continue fighting for Riverside County.
Please join teachers, firefighters, small business owners, and the Democratic Party in supporting my campaign."
