One District, One Economy

We live in one district and we should have one robust economy.

We need to strengthen the interconnections between all parts of the district – literally in the case of transportation, but also with respect to planning and economic development. What’s necessary to make it happen is a Congresswoman with the vision to see the possibilities – and the federal funding to support them. If I’m so fortunate to be elected, I’m dedicated to assigning a member of my staff to prioritize bringing economic development, small business growth, and access to capital to the South Coast and the Gateway Cities.

In the country at large, wealth is concentrated in the hands of the top 1% and everyone else is treading water. I will work to repeal the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations, to provide tax relief for the middle class, and to ensure that the ultra-rich and corporate giants pay their fair share.
