"At a time of so much division across our nation, I'm proud to say that in the California State Assembly, we're working hard everyday to bring people together to solve many of our biggest challenges.
"We've invested in our schools to help make sure all of our kids get a fair shot at a good education. When it comes to public safety, we've been laser focused on enhancing fire protection and emergency response. We've also prioritized ensuring clean air and clean water for all of our communities, while at the same time, working to create good paying and family sustaining middle class jobs. We've done all this by being pragmatic, levelheaded and clear eyed about the fact that people want deliverables from their representatives in government - not politics. I'm running for re-election because this has been my agenda since day one in the State Assembly, and it's precisely what I plan to continue to do in the months and years ahead on behalf of the people of the 38th District."
