This morning I received a call from Congresswoman Jane Harman letting me know that she will be stepping down from her seat in Congress to serve as President and CEO at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The Congresswoman has been a strong voice for improving our nation’s security and has worked hard for the people of the 36th District.
This is a district I know well. The two main economic engines on either side of the district — the port and the airport — have been two of my biggest focuses on the city council, as I have worked hard to create jobs and economic opportunity for everyone.
That’s why I want you to be the first to know — today, I’m announcing I will be running in the special election for Congress in the 36th District.
I’m running to create new jobs, expand clean energy technologies and ensure that local small business owners get the help and opportunities they need to flourish in a global economy. As someone who has served in local government for almost a decade, I want to bring that perspective and experience to Congress. It’s time we end the corporate tax giveaways to multinational corporations that send jobs overseas and invest those dollars in businesses that create jobs here at home. We need to invest in a clean-energy economy and there’s no better place to start than right here in the 36th Congressional District.
Please help us spread the word and chip in so we have the resources we need to kick off our campaign:
This is a huge challenge but an even greater opportunity. I’m energized and excited. I know that I can make a great difference in Congress. Thanks for always being with me.
