Jackie is running for CA. State Assembly 6th District in 2018.  She is a small business owner, community organizer and has served on the board of several local non-profit organizations.

  The push by the administration and congressional Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act has shown how exposed our state really is. California embraced the ACA and today 3 million more Californians have coverage and we have reduced our uninsured rate from 17% to 7.4% - the lowest level on record. A successful rollback threatens to financially cripple our state and bring harm to millions of people. Her opponent is publicly opposed to the state’s Medicaid expansion saying it is too costly.

More than half (56%) of Californians surveyed are worried that they or someone in their family will lose coverage if the ACA is repealed and replaced.

  This year our Legislature secured a package of bills to promote affordable housing and remove impediments to development. Her opponent voted no. 

Affordable housing is a critical issue touching each of us - not only seniors, but teachers, nurses and firefighters who should be able to live in the community they work.

   The Legislature also approved Senate Bill 17, which could soon become the nation’s most comprehensive law aimed at shining a light on prescription drug prices. My opponent voted no. 

   Prescription drug costs effect everyone and, for some, is a life or death issue. It is a particular problem for seniors on limited incomes who are forced to juggle financial decisions.

   Jackie believes with others who have said that California is the "keeper of the nation's future." We need an elected official who is able to make their case, debate and negotiate policy issues, not just cast “No” votes.

   Her experience working in the Silicon Valley, a small business owner and community organizer has taught her the price of inaction.  Jackie's life experiences will bring leadership to our District, advance proposals that represent the voter’s interests and work effectively with fellow members of the Legislature to achieve meaningful results.

Our District deserves more than mere obstructionism.  Please join us to support Jackie Smith in her campaign for Assembly District 6.

RIGHT VOICE.  RIGHT TIME.
