Smart Voter Official Statement for Jared Huffman

Candidate for
Member of the State Assembly; District 6; Democratic Party

This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate

Occupation: Senior Attorney, Natural Resources Defense Council / Water District Director.

Like you, I'm frustrated with the Bush administration's attacks on our environment, civil rights, children's health, and public education. Our state government is our last line of defense.

That's why I'm running for Assembly + to bring strong and effective leadership to Sacramento, and protect the Democratic values we hold dear.

I'm uniquely qualified to meet this challenge. I'm a Senior Attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of America's most respected environmental organizations. I'm an elected official, with over 11 years governing the Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD), where I've built a record of fiscal and environmental accountability. I've fought race and gender discrimination as a civil rights attorney, and won landmark victories for women under Title IX.

In the Assembly, I'll fight to protect our environment, public health, and civil rights; to replace our failed healthcare system with a single-payer system that ensures universal coverage and reduces costs; to increase funding for our schools, ensure clean elections, and build a strong, sustainable economy.

I'm proud to be endorsed by Sierra Club, California Nurses Association, leading progressive Democrats like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and nationally-recognized education leaders. I respectfully ask for your vote.
