Standing up for what’s right.

Regina is qualified to lead, and she’s committed to serve the community that raised her.  She has the courage and integrity to stand up for our families, our economy, our community, and our country.

Standing up for families

Advocate for our public schools and our teachers

Regina believes that every child deserves a world-class public education, regardless of their financial means, their family’s background, or the region where they live. With our rural schools losing pupils, every dollar of funding counts. Regina will push the federal government to meet its obligations to fund special education, which will free up money for our school districts to pay for other important programs. Regina also understands that a great education requires great teachers. She will stand up for our teachers and ensure they are supported with the resources they need, paid well, and provided with an excellent working environment. Regina is opposed to private, for-profit charter schools, which drain resources away from our local public schools without any proven increase in student achievement.

Standing up for our community

Advocate for Seniors

After a lifetime of hard work, our seniors deserve a secure, comfortable retirement. Regina will always stand strong to protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid (which is called Medi-Cal in California). Regina opposes any and all efforts to privatize Social Security. She also opposes the current GOP tax plan, which would result in an estimated $25 billion of cuts to Medicare in the next year alone. Instead of cutting benefits and rolling back protections for our seniors, Regina believes that we should be working to lower prescription drug costs, to make it easier for seniors to access the services they need, and to better support families who are caring for aging relatives.

Standing up for our economy

Be a Responsible Steward of our Great Outdoors

Here in the 4th District, our economy depends on sound land management policies and responsible stewardship of our great outdoors. Regina will fight to protect the beautiful parks, mountains, lakes, and rivers that draw so many visitors to CA-04 each year. Regina supports commonsense wildfire prevention measures, and she will fight for federal resources to deal with the tree mortality crisis in the Sierra Nevada. By pro-actively removing dead trees, we can create good-paying jobs, reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires, and save the government money in the long run.

Standing up for our country

End Partisan Gridlock in Washington, DC.

Regina will always put country over party. She’s a practical problem-solver who will get results for our region. Regina has committed to join the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group that is half Republicans, half Democrats, and focused on making our government work for the people again. Regina believes in balance and good governance, not partisan political games.
