California has the world's fifth largest economy and is the breadbasket for the nation, yet thousands in our state go hungry every day. This is unacceptable and requires change.  By supporting local farmers we can provide better and more nutritious options to our citizens.

The Rim Fire in the Stanislaus National Forest near in California began on Aug. 17, 2013 and is under investigation. The fire has consumed approximately 149, 780 acres and is 15% contained. U.S. Forest Service photo.


We have barely emerged from a historic drought and record wild fires. Shockingly our utilities remain mostly privatized. Water management is being overlooked and it is time that stops. I believe in publicly owned utilities, such as SMUD. Together we can work to provide water solutions for our communities.



The unsheltered population has exploded Nationwide since the recession.  Existing affordable housing and transitional shelter services are not sufficient to adequately address the issue. The government needs to acknowledge these citizens and their need for affordable housing and transitional services.

The Time to Make a Difference is Now

I have been working with the Green Party of Sacramento County, as well as with advocates and organizers for our unsheltered neighbors, and we are frustrated beyond measure by the lip service and lack of available programs for the poorest and most deserving of our community.

The incumbent Assemblyman in District 9 is a corporate Democrat.  He has taken money from special interests and works for them, not the people. I have been a civil servant, a public school teacher for the past 12 years, and an active member of my community. Like all civil servants, firefighters, counselors, and other public employees, I am here to serve the people who need help the most.  I am not a businessman and I am not interested in expanding business development unless it's for low-income housing, public-owned utilities, single-payer health care, and tuition-free college. My goal is to improve conditions for the working class of our society, and with support from my fellow citizens, we can make a substantial difference together.
