It is my honor to represent our City and our San Francisco values in the Congress: jobs with dignity, human rights, reproductive justice, LGBTQ equality, respect for immigrants, and care for our planet and for each other. When people ask me “What are the three most important issues facing the Congress?” I always say “our children; our children; our children” — their health, their education, the housing and economic security of their families, a clean safe environment where they can thrive, and a world in peace where all are welcome and can reach their fulfillment. That is my “why.”
Working for the children, we passed the Affordable Care Act, strengthened Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, increased resources for HIV/AIDS, mental wellness and persons with disabilities, lowered prescription drug prices, and supported servicemembers, veterans and military caregivers. As your Representative, I secured billions in resources for our community in COVID relief and recovery, helping create good-paying green union jobs, affordable housing, clean energy infrastructure, transportation justice, and safe, open public schools.
Our vision for a world at peace requires a strong Democracy at home and support for diplomacy and allies around the world. We must defend our Democracy from assaults on the truth, the assault on the U.S. Capitol, and the assault on voting rights.
While we have made progress together, we have more work to do to improve people’s lives. That is why I am running for re-election to Congress and respectfully seek your vote. Thank you.
