28TH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
FIGHTING for DEMOCRACY
So far the preliminary results are incredibly encouraging. Though there are still more votes to count, I am deeply honored by the amount of support I have received. I am so grateful to my family, friends, supporters, campaign staff and all the voters who made their voices heard. Onward to November!
Our new State Assembly District, covering parts of Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties, faces enormous challenges. Two years into a pandemic, we are working to revitalize our economy and schools, strengthen our public health system, recover from wildfires, and address the impacts of climate change.
My experience as a public servant makes me uniquely qualified to meet these challenges as your State Assemblymember. For the last 27 years I served as chief elections official and then was elected four times as the Santa Cruz County Clerk. Prior to that, I held various positions of increasing responsibility within the California State Assembly for over seven years. Given this experience, I know what the job requires and am ready to hit the ground running.
As County Clerk, I ensured everyone had access to voting by commissioning a nationally recognized VoteMobile program, implementing transparent and verifiable audits, and expanding voting hours and locations. Ensuring that your voice is heard remains my number one priority. I intend to strengthen that voice in Sacramento as your Assemblymember.
Democracy can only thrive if elected officials involve the community in solving the problems we face. Whether it’s tackling affordable housing, providing health care that’s affordable and equitable, delivering mental health care services for those in need, or keeping California as a world leader in addressing climate change, I want to work with you to solve problems.
I respectfully ask for your vote to represent you as Assemblymember for the 28th Assembly District and look forward to our working together.
