“Decades of public service have taught me that a member of Congress should be honest, empathetic, courageous, humble, practical, intelligent, and always be willing to put the people’s interests before their own. It is time for new leadership and a fresh approach in the 21st Congressional District,” Parra said in her campaign video.
A statement released by the Nicole Parra Campaign said she will focus on COVID-19 recovery, healthcare, energy, water, jobs and immigration in the Central Valley.
