I want to express my deep appreciation and thanks to you for supporting my campaign for Assembly. We fought hard for every vote but it was not enough to advance to the run off election.
While the outcome is not what we had hoped, I am encouraged by the enthusiasm for this campaign. We registered hundreds of new voters, inspired new citizens to vote for the first time, and lifted up a community whose voice has been absent in our political process.
I have always believed in the value of participating in our democratic process to create change. I will continue to fight for our progressive values and ensure that California remains a place where everyone, no matter their background can succeed.
I am proud of the campaign that we ran. I continue to be grateful to you for contributing, volunteering, and showing your support.
Thank you for believing in me.
