Sample Ballot for June 5, 2018 Election




As your Congressman I like to get things done for Yolo County.

I want a Better Deal for Yolo County. Good jobs, Good schools, good environment, good future. We’ve come a long way since the 2008 Great Recession. We can do even better. We need the best highway, water, rail, levees, and broadband infrastructure. My "Make It In America" legislation requires your tax dollars be used to buy American goods and services.

I support Yolo County’s agriculture industry. My “American Food for American Schools” legislation builds on Yolo’s successful Farm to Fork Program by requiring schools to use domestic food for school lunches, not foreign grown food. I want UC Davis to get research money and continue to be a world class university.

Stop The Tunnels. As Deputy Secretary of Interior, I fought for parks, wildlife, water, and environment. My water plan will increase water conservation, recycling, desalinization, and dams.

I support equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, family leave, and family farm programs. As Insurance Commissioner, I lowered homeowner and auto rates. Now I fight to protect health care in our communities. I oppose cuts to Social Security, Medicare, MediCal. I vote to increase veterans benefits and lower drug costs. As Lieutenant Governor, I voted to stop tuition increases. Let’s refinance student loans saving billions in interest.

I’m a graduate of UC Berkeley and Harvard. Patti and I served in the Peace Corps. We raise cattle and grow pears on our family ranch.
