100th Anniversary of the National Park Service

Dear Supporter,

Today we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.  Our National Parks, from Yosemite to the Grand Canyon, and from Yellowstone to Sequoia have been one of America’s great success stories.

Loved by Americans, from school aged children to retired workers, the freedom to roam among the many Parks is a value we hold dear to our hearts.  The experiences stay with us for a lifetime.   I congratulate the Park Rangers and staff who have preserved our Parks for future generations.

However, I question whether our current Congressman here in District 4, Tom McClintock, loves our National Parks like so many of us.  He blocked legislation to expand Yosemite, and has attempted to place restraints on the U.S. Antiquities Act, which has been used as a first step by Presidents in creating new Parks.

Open public spaces are critical to our personal, family, and national health. I strongly support our National Parks, and designation of new parks in the majestic Sierra Nevada.  Today and everyday let us celebrate the National Park Service and those who protect these beautiful natural spaces for us all.

Thank you,

Every American Deserves Clean Air


Every American deserves clean fresh air. Without current clean air standards, our lifespans would be much shorter, and many of us would spend time in local Emergency Rooms with respiratory problems.

Unhealthy, dirty air does even more than send us off the the Emergency Room.  The evidence is out!  Polluted air increases the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s in our older  population.  It impacts the ability of our children to do well in school.

My opponent, Tom McClintock,  has consistently voted against clean air measures. In fact, he has voted to make it legal for big corporations like oil and coal to pollute even more by decreasing the standards we currently have protecting our citizens,

As a doctor, I care about your health.   I pledge to fight for clean air and to give the Environmental Protection Agency  the teeth it needs to do its job and continue protecting you and your families.

I thank you for your support of my campaign. Please  donate what you can  to help make my campaign  for US Congress a success.

I ask for your Vote on November 8.

Thank You!
