Healthcare is a right, not a privilege!
I support the introduction of a public health insurance program that would ensure that everyone has access to affordable high-quality healthcare.
California’s housing shortage has reached crisis levels. I support programs to build more affordable middle-class housing. New communities will require new infrastructure. I support substantial investments in clean energy, a dramatic expansion in public transportation, and increased funding to repair and replace existing infrastructure.
A 21st century workforce requires a world-class educational system. I support increased funding for K-12 education, as well as investments in higher education that would lower student loan debt and increase the number of full-time faculty. I have been endorsed by the California Federation of Teachers, AFT, AFL-CIO.
