A little about why I am running. / Un poco sobre por qué estoy corriendo.

I am a home maker, a former pharmacy technician and father of 3 children. Around me, I've seen insurance companies deny coverage, I've seen the populations of homeless increase, I've seen violence increase. I've seen the costs of housing, energy and food increase, while wages remained largely stagnant. Education has gotten worse, especially as many classes have been cut altogether and supplies are now paid by teachers and parents. I've waited and waited for elected officials to make change, but to no avail. In fact, when one man tried, they lined up to stop him. That's why I'm running. It is long past time for the people to rise up and take our government back. My opponent has been in office 20 years, and there is much that he hasn't done. And if he won't, I will.

Soy un amo de casa, un ex técnico de farmacia y padre de 3 hijos. A mi alrededor, he visto a las compañías de seguros negar la cobertura, he visto aumentar la población de personas sin hogar, he visto aumentar la violencia. He visto cómo aumentan los costos de la vivienda, la energía y los alimentos, mientras que los salarios permanecen estancados en gran medida. La educación ha empeorado, especialmente porque muchas clases se han recortado por completo y ahora los maestros y los padres pagan los suministros. Esperé y esperé a que los funcionarios electos hicieran el cambio, pero fue en vano. De hecho, cuando un hombre lo intentó, se alinearon para detenerlo. Por eso estoy corriendo. Ya es hora de que la gente se levante y retire a nuestro gobierno. Mi oponente lleva 20 años en el cargo y hay muchas cosas que no ha hecho. Y si no lo hace, lo haré.

"We were impressed with his passion and his command of the issues."

-Debra from Angwin

"Why can't we have anything nice? Because we fund the war machine instead. War=extinction. The loudest voice opposing it gets my vote and Jason gets this one."

 - Natalie from Vallejo

" - Paul from Lower Lake

"I think you are a great asset to the community and a great voice for the ones who and are afraid of speaking up."

Lindsay from American Canyon

You have my loyalty."

Corporate money in our political system is what prevents our government from being what it should be- "of the people, for the people and by the people". I will fight to end corporate personhood and bring power back to the people.

El dinero corporativo en nuestro sistema político es lo que impide que nuestro gobierno sea lo que debería ser: "de las personas, por las personas y de las personas". Lucharé para acabar con la persona corporativa y devolver el poder a la gente.
