Position Papers
The Manuel Perez Plan for New Jobs and a Stronger Local Economy
For too long, the 80th Assembly District has been ignored and neglected by politicians. Growing up the son of farm workers, I know the struggles of working families. As an educator, healthcare provider, and grassroots organizer, I also know what works for California.
