Fighting for the Middle Class
Many middle class families are struggling. They work hard, but still feel like they are falling further behind. In Congress, I put the fight for these working class families first because I understand these challenges personally. 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 build a better life for my family, and I am committed to making sure that same opportunity is afforded to all who are willing to put in the hard work.
