As an everyday hardworking citizen I share the concerns of our community. I have neighbors that tell me about the struggle of finding good jobs; friends who are teachers who tell me that we can do a better job to not only support this career but make the institution one that prepares the next generation for the workforce; and families that are concerned their children can’t afford college.
I have spent many years as a community advocate working to provide families with the tools to enhance their lives. I have helped families find resolution and to keep their home during the foreclosure crisis. I have helped other families money management so that they can make home ownership a reality or send their children off to college. I have also helped many young people find work, get into college and to start a career. I’ve taken different opportunities to lend my voice by speaking to our state leaders to pass legislation to enhance the lives of my friends and neighbors in our great state.
I now want to take the next step in advocating for the families in California. I want to be of service to you as your next Lieutenant Governor of California.
