To bring the American dream within reach of working families and to bridge the gap between the wealthiest individuals and the majority of Americans, we must ensure that they have access to those rights which are fundamental to the prosperity of all Americans: a living wage, universal health care, increased eligibility for food stamps, subsidized daycare, more federal funding for public schools and free college tuition and vocational training.
Growing up as the oldest of seven kids in a family that lived below the poverty line, higher education was my best opportunity to make a better life and give back to the community. Through a combination of government-funded loans, grants, scholarships, and part-time jobs, I received my college degree from Georgetown University. After college, I joined the US Peace Corps in Russia and returned to California to receive my JD/MBA from UC Davis.
