October 2016 District Report

Dear Friends,

I'm thrilled to tell you about our successful results for the people of Oakland, Alameda, San Leandro and all of California. All of my bills that reached the governor's desk this year were signed into law. We protected patients from surprise medical bills. We helped create more affordable housing. We strengthened our gun laws to ensure firearms don't end up in the wrong hands. We took on Big Tobacco and made California healthier. We recommitted to saving our planet and protecting the environment. We fought to protect survivors of human trafficking. We won the fight for $15/hour minimum wage, and we secured $530 million for more preschool access and more money to allow more California students to go to CSU and UC schools. Read on!

Winter District Report

Dear Friend:

Thank you for allowing me to represent you in the State Capitol this year. The past year serving as the State Assemblymember for the 18th District has been one of the most meaningful and exciting years of my life. I had the opportunity to advance my longstanding commitments to support our public schools, keep our streets safe for our children, and create sustainable opportunities for economic and job growth - which together will mean more prosperous communities for everyone.

Overall, 2013 was a tremendously productive year for the state and for the 18th Assembly District, in particular. After years of devastating cuts to state services, this year's budget in general was on-time and balanced. My colleagues and I advocated for a budget to reflect our state's and my own priorities to include continued fiscal responsibility, strengthen the Middle Class, and deliver effective, efficient services for all areas throughout California, including Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro.
