I’m excited for my dear friend, Jimmy Gomez, to be representing our community in Congress. He has served us well and we need to ensure that his track record of progressive leadership continues in the Assembly. 

I’m running to represent the 51st Assembly District because I want California to lead the way when it comes to building a stronger economy, providing high-quality education and job training, welcoming immigrants, and ensuring access to affordable and quality health care for all. I will work to ensure that everyone, no matter their background, has the opportunity to succeed.

I'm the son of Filipino immigrants who came to Historic Filipinotown to flee the Marcos regime. I understand the struggle many working people and immigrant families face when trying to make a new life in Los Angeles. Despite growing up in intense poverty, I was able to take advantage of opportunities made possible to me by public education and the entertainment industry.

I'm asking you to join me in this campaign. Together, we will fight for our progressive values.

The challenges of growing up in an immigrant family trying to make a new life in Los Angeles are the same that many families face today. I'm running for Assembly because I want to ensure everyone, no matter their background, has the opportunity to succeed.

I'll fight to build a stronger economy, invest more in child care, provide quality public education, and job training, welcome immigrants to our communities, and ensure access to affordable and quality health care for all.

If you enjoyed my video, help me ensure voters in California's 51st Assembly District see it. Make a contribution today!
