Dear Pittsburg Neighbor,
Pittsburg is my hometown. I grew up here and I’m a proud graduate of Los Medanos Elementary School, Hillview Jr. High School, and Pittsburg High. I come from a working class family with parents who put in long hours to make ends meet. My Mom worked the graveyard shift at Anchor Glass while my Dad worked in construction. My husband and I are proud to raise our boys here.

For almost 20 years, I’ve had a job in public service where I have helped thousands of people solve problems with the government including Social Security, Medicare, student loans, and the IRS. During the recession, I worked to prevent foreclosures and save homes. I’ve worked to create after-school and summer programs within my community. As a working mom, I know it is important to have safe and affordable options for our children.

Pittsburg is doing well, but we need to continue moving in the right direction. If elected, I will:

  • Continue to revitalize our downtown

  • Bring jobs to reduce commute times

  • Work to keep the community safe

  • Provide openness and transparency

I am honored to be endorsed by Congressmen Mark Desaulnier and George Miller and Pittsburg Mayor Pete Longmire, Council Member Sal Evola, and former Mayors Nancy Parent and Yvonne Beals.

I am from the community, and I will be a voice for our community. I hope to earn your vote.
