My Priorities

1. Create Middle Class Jobs in the San Fernando Valley

In California, we have one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation.  This is unacceptable.  We need to find ways to attract businesses to open up shop in the Valley and train our workforce for the next generation of jobs.

2. Help Pass a Responsible Budget That Protects the American Dream

As we work to rebuild our economy and invest in the future, we must take a balanced approach to our debt and deficit. This means investing in the middle class, making smart, targeted reductions in spending, closing tax loopholes and reducing subsidies to profitable industries.

4. Pass Fair, Balanced, Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Our country has always been a nation of immigrants and the current system is in desperate need of reform.

5. Effectively Implement the Affordable Care Act, to Insure Access to Healthcare

In 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. This law, often called "Obamacare," is the strongest, most robust improvement made in our nation's healthcare system since Medicare was passed in 1965.
