My occupation is Member of Congress.
My qualifications are:
Since coming to Congress, it has been my immense privilege to represent San Francisco. Each year, the spirit and energy of San Francisco inspire my work in the nation’s capital.
Time and again, we see our city and our state leading the way for the entire country. We have embraced innovation, enacted groundbreaking protections for LGBT children, created good-paying jobs, and worked to raise the wages of all Californians. It has been my honor to help secure critical federal resources to increase funding in the fight against HIV/AIDS, to strengthen San Francisco’s transportation infrastructure, and to help address our urgent, ongoing affordable housing crisis. And we must do more.
We must strengthen the security of our communities with gun safety legislation and honor the values of our nation with comprehensive immigration reform. We must confront the climate crisis and pass the Equality Act to affirm the rights of all LGBT Americans. We must do more to grow the paychecks of hard-working families and build an economy that works for everyone.
If we are to put the American people back in the driver’s seat of our economy and our democracy, our path forward is clear: we must end the poisonous influence of secret, unlimited special interest money in our elections by overturning Citizens United.
This is the work we must pursue together.
Thank you for the privilege of representing San Francisco in Congress. I am asking for your vote, and would be honored by it.
