My Top 3 Priorities

  • Bring unity to our Democratic Party in Sacramento by registering more voters, creating community volunteer projects, and increasing voter outreach events.
  • Ensure our elected officials answer to all of Sacramento and not just the well-connected.
  • Advocate with my strongest voice for ethics reform in Sacramento County.

Sacramento is beginning to come back after the economic downturn.  But we still face many challenges.  As a long-time Democratic leader in Sacramento, I am committed to helping our city and county officials solve problems like homelessness, mass transit and bicycle-friendly roads, and increased commitment to our neediest neighborhoods.  I am the mother of three young children and I want to build a Sacramento that offers them - and every child - the most opportunities for a bright future.  We can only do that by coming together as Democratic activists and reaching out to every corner of our county.  As chair of our county Democratic Party from 2009-2011, I lead our efforts to increase participation through creating more Democratic clubs across the county so more of Sacramento could participate.  I stabilized our finances and helped create a year-round office for activists to use.  And we came together to do community service projects like river clean up and building houses.  A unified Democratic Party of Sacramento County can do so many things to help build our future.  I would be honored for your vote.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that the local Democratic Party can play a pivotal role in creating unity in Sacramento.  We can do more by coming together and advocating for more responsive local governments, encouraging increased access to information about how our local governments work, expanding the network of people who become involved, and by bringing important issues to your doorsteps.  I support our strong neighborhoods and want to continue and extend Sacramento's proud tradition of neighborliness.
