My Platform

I am a unifier, and I will listen to and work with anyone no matter their political party, but I will stand firm when it comes to protecting people and planet over mega-corporations. I am particularly concerned about the vast and growing disparity between the billionaire class and the working and middle class, how it is quietly affecting many of us even here in Orange County, and I will fight to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy their best life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this beautiful corner of our country.  I am socially liberal, but fiscally nuanced – in these accelerated economic times, we need social safety nets for those who would otherwise be left behind, while at same time unleashing the power of small businesses to provide good paying jobs.
