Merecemos algo mejor

Estamos en un punto crítico en California. Estamos en un momento de demasiada energía equivocada. Nos hemos enamorado demasiado de personas políticas y no hemos prestado atención a cómo sirven a la gente. Lo que hacen (o no hacen) afecta a nuestros niños, nuestras comunidades y nuestras vidas. Me postulo para la asamblea estatal en el 63 porque podemos hacerlo mejor. Nos volvimos complacientes y permitimos que el juego de la política afectara a nuestras comunidades de manera adversa por demasiado tiempo. Estoy corriendo para cambiar eso. Para mí, esto no es un juego. Me niego a aceptar que esto es lo mejor que podemos hacer. Me niego a aceptar que tenemos que vivir en un ambiente envenenado, donde el aire que respiramos y el agua que tomamos nos enferman. Me niego a creer que no podamos tener atención médica para todos en este estado. Me niego a creer que una corporación en mi vecindario tenga el derecho de envenenar a mi gente. Me niego a aceptar que nuestros gobiernos locales puedan salirse con la suya al vender familias trabajadoras regulares. Me niego a creer que la gente del Distrito 63 tenga que conformarse con todo lo que han soportado durante décadas. Merecemos algo mejor. Hoy les pido su apoyo para luchar por la gente del Distrito 63 y el estado de California.

Hello friends and fellow activists. My name is Maria Estrada. I am an activist, a mother and a grandmother. I'm not a politician, I don't have aspirations to be a lifelong politician, but I am tired. 

Tired of the status quo, the decline in our standard of living, the decline in our environment and our education system, and I am really tired of the politicians who have allowed our situation to worsen. 

I am running in AD63 to represent the people in that district, and to remove the Speaker of the Assembly of California who has failed the 63rd and the people in California for denying us single payer healthcare. 

We need someone who represents us, not corporate interests and the companies who are poisoning our communities. If given the opportunity I will fight for you as a mother, a grandmother, and as a Mexicana.

    “We need Maria Estrada in the legislature because she actually notices that people are suffering and need relief. She will work for her constituents.

That seems to be rare with two corporate parties dominating our political landscape. Time to change the system...one office at a time. Start with electing Estrada to represent the people and give Rendon the boot out for his unapologetic negligence.”

After Election Update

Wow! Who would have thought with a handful of volunteers, some home printed flyers and lots of door knocking we would be here! I am so grateful to everyone for their help and support.

Now that we made it through the primary we will need all hands on deck.  We have a great phone banking app that is super easy to use, we are hosting canvassing events throughout the district from now until the primary and we have a great group of volunteers. What we are lacking are funds for basic campaign necessities.  Any and all donations are very much appreciated and with your help we can do this!

We deserve better.

We are at a critical point in California. We are at a moment of too much misguided energy. We have become too enamored with political personas and not paid attention to how they serve the people. What they do (or not do) affects our children, our communities, and our lives.  I'm running for state assembly in the 63rd because we can do better.  We have become complacent and allowed the game of politics to affect our communities in an adverse way for far too long. I am running to change that.  For me, this is not a game. I refuse to accept this is the best we can do. I refuse to accept that we have to live in a poisoned environment, where the air we breathe and the water we drink makes us sick. I refuse to believe that we can't have healthcare for everyone in this state. I refuse to believe that a corporation in my neighborhood has the right to poison my people. I refuse to accept that our local governments can get away with selling out regular working families. I refuse to believe that the people of the 63rd District have to settle for all that they've endured for decades. We deserve better. Today I am asking for your support to fight for the people of the 63rd District and the state of California. We have a week to raise the money needed for filing fees and campaign statements. Please donate what you can to get us to the next step.

GO Maria!!! We love you! (And to the incumbent: u better run, you scurrilous creep, we are coming for you! Resign now and go run to your predictable multi milllon dollar lobbying gig.
