As a Central Valley native, Andy understands the issues that affect our communities, and as a security officer he has engaged directly with those experiencing homelessness, addiction, and mental illness. He is adept at de-escalation and strives to treat everyone he meets with understanding and respect. He’s running for Congress because we need someone who isn’t afraid to stand up to the status quo and put us first. He knows that too often Central Valley families feel alone. That’s why he’s going to fight for our security and make real progress towards accessible healthcare, affordable housing, better education, environmental protection, women’s rights, and social justice.
