Welcome to my campaign website. I am proud and excited to announce that I am seeking re-election in the newly drawn Fifth Congressional District of California. From Lake County to Sonoma, to Napa, Solano and Contra Costa, I will continue my fight to create jobs, bring fiscally responsible solutions to the federal government, protect our seniors by strengthening Social Security and Medicare, and making sure our veterans and military families receive the benefits they have earned.
I was born, grew up and still live in our district. The new Fifth district will include areas I have always represented during my time in public office, areas I have represented in the past, and some new areas – Martinez, Pinole, Hercules, Crockett and Rodeo. I look forward to working with the all the great people of our district to strengthen our communities and deliver solutions to the challenges facing families.
In Congress I will consistently have one agenda: taking the opportunities and challenges we face in Northern California to Washington, coming up with solutions, and returning home with results. My success as an effective leader on job creation, budget discipline, veterans benefits, and the preservation of Social Security and Medicare is owed to the support I receive from people I represent.
Please join me in our 2012 campaign. I have always believed that the foundation of effective public service is open and active communication. Contact me with your ideas and concerns.
