Fighting climate change
Climate change is real and our generation’s solemn responsibility to address. California should lead the way, and I believeit was a mistake for the United States to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. As a San Jose councilman, I have a strong record of supporting climate action and environmental stewardship, and as your State Senator I will support efforts to address climate change and to protect Californians’ right to clean air and water.
- Worked with Open Space Authority to preserve the Santa Teresa foothills and Sycamore Terrace near Almaden Lake.

- Authored policies on plastic straws and a gas powered mower/blower buyback.
Collaborated with communityresidents to adopt 8 parks including Guadalupe Oak Grove park where we are attempting to restore and preserve a Blue Oak savanna.
