Endorsements

Together, we CAN make a difference!

Many supporters have marched with me as fellow citizens, lobbying our state and federal legislators. We've learned through organizing that "together we CAN make a difference!" And if you let me, I'll take the fight to Sacramento! I am so grateful to everyone who has endorsed my campaign. For those I've just met, I'd love to hear what matters most to you. This is OUR Assembly seat and I'm ready to stand front and center, representing my neighbors in our fight for a better quality of life for our families, our children, our veterans, seniors, small business owners and all who live and work in the vital 76th Assembly District. I hope to earn your endorsement now, and I look forward to earning your vote on November 6! Partial list of endorsers follows.
