Since I joined the Assembly earlier this year, my top priority has been the people of this Valley, and I am so proud of what we have already accomplished for our community in my first five months in office.
I have put politics aside to give the Valley a strong, effective voice in the Assembly and worked across the aisle to get our fair share of resources. Together, we have made progress on issues like clean air and clean water, expanding access to health care, taking care of our veterans, preparing kids for college and much more.
These accomplishments will make a huge difference for the people of the Valley and improve lives across the state, but I need your help to continue our work.
Earlier this week, I was excited to join leaders in Selma to announce more than $10 million that I helped secure for local police departments in Selma, Huron, Firebaugh and Mendota. This money will help keep our communities safe by improving public safety infrastructure.
Last Wednesday, I had the honor of welcoming Governor Jerry Brown to Fresno as he signed several bills that will direct tens of millions of dollars to Fresno and will support local efforts to combat climate change in our most disadvantaged neighborhoods.
Governor Brown also signed the farmworker overtime bill this week, so those who work to feed the world are treated equally under the law.
Well-funded special interests that don’t have the Valley’s best interest at heart will stop at nothing to distort my record. Together we can make sure we have the resources needed to run a winning campaign.
You can also join us this coming Wednesday, September 21 at the Carpenters Hall in Fresno for a fun evening of music and dancing featuring Cerro Negro, a talented local band. Click here for more information and to RSVP.
Thank you for all your support. Working together, we can make our community better.
