I am deeply honored and thankful to have earned the confidence and support of the residents of California’s 11th Congressional District: from Concord, Walnut Creek, Danville, Pleasant Hill, Clayton, El Cerrito and Richmond, to Orinda, Lafayette, Moraga, Pittsburg, San Pablo, and folks from nearly every corner of Contra Costa County.
As I acknowledged from the inception of my campaign, I have very big shoes to fill, following our widely respected Congressman George Miller’s many decades of public office. I look forward to this challenge and to tackling our nation’s most pressing issues head-on in the years ahead.
Voters across the 11th district have sent a resounding message tonight that they want common sense solutions to our nation’s biggest issues—not more gridlock. That’s precisely what I’ll bring to Washington.
Residents in California and across America are fed up with partisan bickering. They want government to work for them. In Congress, I will work to bridge the partisan divide by advancing pragmatic policies that help disadvantaged and average American families.
I am optimistic about the future and excited to move forward in issues of critical importance like creating more good paying jobs, growing our middle class, investing in our infrastructure, increasing access to healthcare, enhancing the use of renewable and homegrown energy, improving our education systems, and making the United States a leader in innovation and opportunity around the globe.
Thank you to the voters of the 11th district. I will work hard every day to make you proud and to get things done for our community and our country.”
