Across the country and here in House District 39, people have very different ideas about the role of government and what policies are best. It is entirely legitimate that as individuals and as members of political parties they seek to advance their preferences with regard to the range of issue areas including the economy, the environment, criminal justice and education.
For our Constitutional republic to succeed, however, it must operate on a foundation of decency and sense. It thrives when our representatives work together with members of rival parties and arrive at policies to advance the common good.
This has always been my approach to politics and public policy. I am dedicated to serving House District 39 by seeking legislative solutions to pressing challenges, such as the threat of wildfires, depletion of water resources, and inadequate resources for education.
In our community and more broadly, I am eager to do what I can to foster a better world for our children --
