When I made the decision to run for Congress against a 14-year incumbent, I knew I was facing an uphill climb. But I was driven to make that choice because of the thousands of Valley families, like my own, who continue to struggle despite working hard and playing by the rules. I was driven by the belief that we need a member of Congress who represents us.
Congress is broken because Washington politicians put the interests of corporations over the interests of their constituents. That’s why I have decided that I won’t accept corporate PAC money – as your representative, the only interest I will be beholden to is you.
