Many Middle Class Americans are struggling. They work hard and yet feel like they are falling further behind. I am running for Congress to fight for these working class families because I personally understand that struggle. My father worked the fields in Oxnard and our family lived in public housing. I focused on my education and worked my way through UCSB and served my country in the Marine Corps Reserves. I worked hard to get ahead and I am committed to making sure that same opportunity is afforded to others willing to put in the hard work.
