Statement: I refuse corporate campaign contributions because I work for you, not special interests. I’m leading the fight to lower your car tabs by $780 million. I voted against all property tax increases and voted for property tax cuts.
We must reform government. I was one of only 14 representatives who voted against the Legislature’s attempt to hide public records. I passed a law to get “dark money” out of politics, and I’m fighting to close the lobbyist “revolving door.” The son of educators and endorsed by the State Labor Council, I’ll always put our working families’ needs first.
