I am a nurse, educator, leader, mother and Latina running for Assembly for District 11 which deserves positive change.
My experience working in many areas of nursing over the last 28 years as a leader, nursing professor and volunteer in the community would be a valuable asset to the legislature and to my constituents. My upbringing, career, leadership and education give me a strategic and creative edge to advocate, create change and lead District 11 in the right direction.
I want to be an assemblywoman because District 11 needs new leadership. My opponent, Jim Frazier, is the co-author of the gas tax which was passed without taxpayers’ vote, has no cap, increases with inflation and affects hardworking families. My opponent is also the chair of the Transportation Committee, which is 11 years behind schedule, started at $33 billion, is now at $77 billion and is estimated to be $100 billion. Every taxpayer needs to pay attention to these two issues.
Residents say they want affordable housing; protections for our farmers and Delta by not supporting the twin tunnels; a focus on old and new business; resources for our veterans, mental health and teachers; improved and safer schools; affordable and accessible healthcare; answers to homelessness; a focus on climate change and preserving our environment; promotion of healthy aging and protections of our pensions, Social Security and retirements; and an advocate for every taxpayer.
My family includes my husband, Mariano, and two children, Abryanna and Valentino. We enjoy riding Harley Davidsons, attending church, the outdoors and being a part of the theater and Kajukenbo martial-arts community.
I will bring transparency, fiscal responsibility and accountability to the residents in District 11. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/electlisaromero or www.electlisaromero.com.
