Today, I am announcing I am running for Congress (21st Congressional District). I will be making a formal announcement in January with my family and supporters, pending updated Covid-19 protocols for the San Joaquin Valley. I am excited to share this news, and I am truly honored by the early endorsements I have received, over the last few days. Information regarding my website, social media links, will be up and running soon!
I am running for Congress because the people in the Central Valley deserve better; they deserve a representative with a proven track record and the experience and the leadership skills necessary to solve real problems. As a member of the California State Assembly, I always put the needs of my district above partisan politics. Decades of public service have taught me that a member of Congress should be honest, empathic, courageous, humble, practical, intelligent, and always be willing to put the people’s interests before their own. It’s time for new leadership and a fresh approach in the 21st Congressional District.
“I’m grateful to already have the endorsements of Fresno City Councilman Miguel Arias, Kings County Supervisor Richard Valle, Tilo Cortez, Jr. Wasco City Council, Avenal Mayor Alvaro Preciado, Corcoran Mayor, Pat Nolen, Kern Community District Trustee Yovani Jimenez, Fresno County Assessor Paul Dictos, and Bakersfield City School Board Trustee Lillian Tafoya.
We’re running a grassroots campaign and every dollar helps. Please consider donating. Together we can make a difference. Thank you!
