Statement: My wife and I want all the kids in our son’s first grade class to have a bright future, where a good education and a decent living aren’t out of reach. I spent my career helping families by building stronger communities. I’ve fought for educational funding for our schools, environmental protections, an inclusive voting system, consumer credit protection, better health care, more efficient government, and support for our children, veterans, immigrants, and elders.
I’ve been endorsed by: State Labor Council, Conservation Voters, King/Young/11th Democrats, Firefighters, and voters like you. Thank you for your vote.
