What do I believe?

As a two-term Mayor of Richmond CA, I led a successful grassroots movement to liberate our city from the grip of corporate giants and wealthy special interests. Our progressive transformation returned political power to our residents and local businesses and we defeated the oil giant Chevron’s attempts to buy our democracy.

What Will You Do?

Are you willing to stand up against the corporate control of our lives, and organize locally with your friends and neighbors for political power? Will you join with them and me to create progressive, corporate-free, inclusive and diverse, year-round democratic and independent organizations to gain local political power for the people in your city, your school district, and your county?

We did it in Richmond, and like Bernie Sanders, we did it without corporate money and in spite of corporate money opposing us.
I look forward to visiting your community to share our experience of putting People First.

A better California in possible!

MY GOALS

Throughout this campaign, and later as Lieutenant Governor, I will support the people’s struggles, and work to build progressive coalitions, promote new policies, and mobilize all Californians of good will, regardless of party affiliation, who are willing to transform our state.
