Campaign Issues:

My Top Priorities Are:


HealthCare Acts

I will join other Congress members in the fight for fair and equitable Health Care for all. Top concerns for policymakers is the rising cost of healthcare, which has placed and increasing strain on the disposable income of consumers as well as on state budgets.  Medical expansion has been the largest cause of the decline in uninsured residence.

Vocational Training For Our Youth

As an advocate and a solid believer for Vocational Education, I see it as an institutional neglect.  Our focus is to connect students with work in the shortest pathway possible.  We need alternative paths to good paying jobs in the building trades, transportation industry, and medical fields, among others. 

 

 

Me Too Movement/ LGBT Actions

Protection from harassment, assaults and equal rights.  Strengthening laws and policies that prohibit sexual harassment in schools, in the workplace and discrimination against LGBT.

 

 

 

Veterans/ Homelessness

Caring for our military’s men and women whom made great sacrifices to protect our country.  I have worked with the VA hospital and support the Vet Hunters Foundation. There are an estimated 553,742 people in the U.S. experiencing homelessness on a given night.  This represents a rate of approximately 17 people experiencing homelessness for every 10,000 people in the general population.  We cannot afford and allow homelessness to continue. Homelessness is expensive. 

 

Immigration/ DACA,

Will work with Congress to implement better Immigration laws. Every single person living in the U.S. has fundamental human rights to healthcare regardless of citizenship status or ability to pay. 

 

 

 

 

Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

TPP in a nutshell. International trade agreements for equal trade with eleven countries.  TPP stands as the largest economic piece of the Obama administration's policy in Asia. I will work in Congress to revive the agreement of TPP by working on trade negotiations and digital rights.  Advocating for users' rights, and fighting for the reform of closed and captured processes.

 

JaneUnemployment/ Affordable Housing/ Homelessness

• Despite some recent unemployment improvement, California’s labor force participation rate remains low by historical standards. I will implement programs to assist discouraged workers who are underemployed. 

• As people continue to lose wages and jobs, the price of housing remains incredibly high.  We need to improve the low-income housing subsidies for affordable housing. 

•Homelessness takes a toll on the economy, environment, health-care and criminal justice systems and the lives of fellow human beings. These are local issues that need our attention. 

 

Infrastructure

As roads and bridges across the country continue to age and deteriorate, governments at all levels are struggling to pay for maintenance and upkeep. Focus on bringing improvements to our critical roads and bridges which will in turn bring jobs to our communities. 

 

 

Stricter Gun Laws

As a doctor I strive to preserve lives and I will continue to do so.  I supported 'March For Our Lives' protests, students feel strongly about the need for stricter gun regulations.  I will work with ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) regulate, implement and enforce stricter gun laws.
