Dear friends,

Thank you for visiting my campaign website. This is where you can learn more about me and the issues I will fight for in the State Senate.

As the daughter of immigrant parents and the first in my family to graduate from college, I know firsthand what it means to achieve the American dream. That’s why I’m running for State Senate – to advocate for all our families for access to healthcare, quality schools, good paying jobs and the opportunity for a better life.

I believe that by working together we can provide opportunity for children, good jobs for our families and economic prosperity for our communities. I hope that you will join our campaign. It would be an honor to have your support.

Queridos amigos,

Gracias por visitar la página web de mi campaña. Aquí es donde usted puede aprender más acerca de mí y los temas por los que lucharé en el Senado Estatal.

Como hija de padres inmigrantes y la primera de mi familia en graduarse de la Universidad, sé de primera mano lo que significa lograr el sueño Americano. Es por eso que estoy postulando para el Senado Estatal – para luchar por que nuestras familias tengan acceso a servicios de salud, buenas escuelas, trabajos con buen pago y la oportunidad de una vida mejor.

Estoy convencida que trabajando juntos podemos brindar oportunidad para nuestros niños, buenos empleos para nuestras familias y prosperidad económica para nuestras comunidades. Espero que se unan a nuestra campaña. Sería un honor contar con su apoyo.
