Fighting for Progress

Why I'm Running

Since my election to the Legislature in 2014, I have been fighting hard for San Francisco and California — to create affordable housing, improve our schools, protect our environment, defend our civil rights, and so much more. I’m honored to represent the 17th Assembly District, and hope you’ll join my 2020 re-election campaign. Let’s move forward together!
