Please note that Candidate Statements are optional and paid for by the candidates.  This page may NOT contain a statement from each qualified candidate.  


Occupation: State AssemblymemberAge: 42

Education & Qualifications:

I am a lifelong resident of this region– the grandchild of a farmworker who came here to build a better life. As your Assemblymember, it is my honor to represent the community that has given me and my family so much. My wife Christen and I are raising our daughter here, and I am committed to ensuring that the doors of opportunity remain open for the next generation.

We have made substantial legislative progress despite the challenges of the past few years. I led the successful passage of legislation to enhance safety protections for agricultural workers. I authored the Golden State Teacher Grant Program, which secured $89 million for grants to teachers who commit to teach in a school lacking qualified educators. I have championed efforts to invest in affordable housing and protect our natural environment. I currently serve as Chair of the Assembly Agriculture Committee, advocating for our state’s critical and diverse agricultural sector.

Looking forward, we must ensure that California provides the best public services for its residents. That means great schools, affordable and high-quality healthcare, good paying jobs, and investments in roads, public transit, and other infrastructure that affects our quality of life. Our state must be more efficient and more effective in delivering these services. If re-elected to the State Assembly, this will be a key focus of mine over the next several years.

With your help, I will continue standing up for every resident of the 29th Assembly District.
