John, the filing window for my seat in Congress just closed and I wanted you to be the first to know that I’m running for reelection. It’s going to be a spirited race with five challengers, so I will be asking for your continued support.
But first I want to tell you why I’m running.
Since reclaiming the majority in Congress, my Democratic colleagues and I have proudly worked to defend our rights, freedoms and democracy through the worst days of the Trump administration. And under President Biden’s leadership, we’ve stood together to pass critical reforms like the American Rescue Plan, which funded the most successful vaccine rollout in history, got urgent economic relief to families and businesses and lifted our economy out of recession.
I played a unique role in negotiating and passing historic infrastructure legislation which is providing nearly a trillion dollars to upgrade roads, bridges and water systems, build a national electric vehicle charging network and expand rural broadband.
Even in this time of extreme partisan division, I am proud to have earned a reputation for finding ways to cut through the dysfunction and work across the aisle to get results for our community.
To that end, I’ve helped deliver major funding for environmental projects including wetlands and salmon restoration, transit operations, expanded bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and the dredging of critical navigation channels like Humboldt Bay, the Petaluma River, and the San Rafael canal.
When our communities faced devastating wildfires, I not only helped secure emergency federal disaster relief, I kept working until we passed the largest-ever federal investment in fire preparedness, including new programs for healthier, more resilient forests and grants for local communities to develop microgrids, fire evacuation routes, and other resiliency projects.
There is no stronger voice in Congress for bold climate action than mine, and I’ll continue to advocate for urgent climate action at home and internationally.
I continue to lead the fight to ban fossil fuel drilling off our shores and on our precious public lands, including the Arctic Refuge. And I’ve introduced legislation for federal research and conservation grants to save kelp forest ecosystems which have wiped out kelp and abalone along our coast as our ocean warms.
A generational change is underway in Congress, and as a senior member of the Natural Resources and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees I’ll have an even stronger voice in coming years – you can count on me to keep delivering on our priorities.
I would be honored to continue representing California’s 2nd Congressional District in Congress, and I hope I will have your continued support.
Now, I have to ask. If you can, I’d appreciate a contribution of any amount to our campaign before our first big Federal Elections Commission (FEC) deadline of the year. You can make a donation online here: [link removed]
