Sample Ballot for June 5, 2018 Election

STATE SENATOR, 6th District



Occupation: Foundation Colleague

I'm a life-long Californian and dedicated mother. I understand the importance of seeking the brightest future for our children and I see several achievable adjustments needed to improve our state. We should be flourishing in California and shouldn't have to move out of our beautiful state to seek prosperity. Often, personal values can drive politics, but the true and moral home for real, heartfelt change is with the common set of values found in human respect. A system based primarily on persuasion and voluntary cooperation will better serve our social and economic needs.

Throughout my career, I've managed apartments (both income restricted and fair market) and I’ve served as an Auditor with the State of California in two departments (California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) and California Department of Education (CDE)). After seeing how the state operates from the inside, I've made a point to study our political systems, with the specific goal of improving our communities and minimizing hardships. Today, I’m grateful to work with a foundation creating a vision aimed at increasing well-being for each of us and our posterity.

It's time to send a message that we want a different kind of representative. We, the people, have the ability to vote for individuals we believe in. Those who won't use force to impose their personal values. We hold the power to create change. Like many of you, I don't agree with voting for the lesser of two evils. I'm here to offer you a positive option.
