Government works best when inspiring public servants do the people’s business with humility, enthusiasm, and skill. From Washington to Sacramento, we run into problems when politicians are allowed to buy their way into office and use their power for personal benefit.

In order to run for Governor, I recently stepped down from the senior team at the California Department of Justice. As the DOJ’s Chief of Operations, I led a team of 1,000 dedicated public servants and managed an $850 million budget. The DOJ has locked up human traffickers, cracked down on polluters, fought for women’s healthcare, shielded seniors from Medi-Cal fraud, and secured millions in student refunds from shady for-profit colleges. As the daughter of former farmworkers, I’m especially proud of our efforts to protect immigrants’ rights.

Prior to the Department of Justice, I was a math teacher in the Central Valley, a budget analyst for the City of San Jose, an economic policy adviser to US Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the first Latina Chief of Staff in US Senate history. This gives me the deepest policy experience in the race, but mostly it shows that I’ve treated public service as a lifelong calling.

Californians take pride in being on the frontiers of change in America. That’s why we can’t sit back any longer. We need fresh faces and new ideas this year. It’s time for politics to be about people again.
