I'm a proud daughter of an immigrant, who started out as a farmworker in California's Central Valley. As California’s next Lt. Governor, I will make it my mission to protect our immigrants, defend Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and fight for equality for all Californians.
I am committed to fighting to bring down the cost of higher education for California students. Here in California with costs soaring, college is out of reach to too many of our kids. The Lt. Governor sits on the UC Board of Regents and the CSU Board of Trustees. With costs soaring, college is out of reach for too many kids. I will fight for free community college and for real solutions that make student housing affordable and higher education for accessible.
Broadband is also essential for economic success. 1 in 3 Californians lack access to broadband internet. Broadband is essential for economic success, and deployment and adoption programs are some of the easiest and best policy measures that can be undertaken to boost the economy.
