My occupation is Assembly Budget Chair.
My qualifications are:
With just about everything costing more, our government needs to do better. That’s why we’re working overtime to tackle our biggest challenges like homelessness, rising crime rates and the high cost of housing.
As the Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, virtually every spending proposal crosses my desk. My mission is to make sure your hard-earned tax dollars are well spent. That’s why I wrote and passed legislation that:
· Invested our state surplus where it has the biggest impact — by improving K-12 education, creating more affordable housing and opening up more places for Californians in our public colleges and universities.
· Focused on safety — including bringing state dollars home so we could fund programs to combat violence, including the alarming spike in anti-Asian hate crimes. We brought people together to pass common-sense gun safety laws to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous individuals.
· Worked for economic recovery by bringing home additional COVID-19 response funds and fighting to fix the mess at the state’s unemployment office.
With your support I will keep fighting for a fair and complete economic recovery, for the new housing and transit we need to make housing costs reasonable, for the mental health and job training programs we need to lower crime rates and most of all — for a state government that responds to you.
I’m proud to have won the support of the California Professional Firefighters Association, the California Teachers Association, the California Nurses Association and the Sierra Club, San Francisco Bay Chapter and many others.
