I work hard every day to solve challenges that some feel are almost impossible to overcome. That’s what leadership and commitment mean to me. That’s why I’ll never give up taking on the big issues to make life better for you, your family and everyone in our communities.
I know that there is no such thing as waving a magic wand to make positive change — it takes determination, skill and hard work to move government in ways that truly address the big issues we face today and tomorrow. That’s the kind of work I’m very good at!
If you know me well, you know that I am not afraid to lead the charge for change. That’s why I am doubling down on my commitment for positive change by running for the CA State Senate.
I have spent my entire professional career in the Bay Area as an environmental and social justice advocate and public servant, leading efforts to protect our environment and combat climate change, increase affordable housing, reduce gun violence and increase neighborhood safety, fight for clean money elections, support our public libraries, create livable, walkable neighborhoods, and promote social justice, access to good-paying jobs and universal access to health care.
For over 30 years I have served as a public interest advocate—most of that as an environmental champion with groups such as the Sierra Club and the Union of Concerned Scientists engaging full-time for the existential battle that is upon us: the climate crisis. Because we can’t wait anymore — future generations are counting on us to combat climate change and protect our precious environment for generations to come.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of residents of the East Bay and beyond. Please join me.
