Carbajal: A Proven Record of Support for Women

A recent article published about the congressional race in California’s 24th District neglected to include comments from women explaining their support for Salud Carbajal for Congress. I am happy to go on the record about why I support Salud in this election.

Salud has time and again proven himself as someone who has worked well with his colleagues to bring positive change to our Central Coast — including garnering bipartisan support for legislation to reduce the number of uninsured children in our area as well as in creating programs to reduce truancy among our students. Salud has proven himself a strong defender of women’s rights, unwavering in his support of equal pay, gender equality in the workplace, and women’s access to comprehensive health care. He has a long history of environmental advocacy, including his staunch opposition to offshore oil drilling, and has served on President Obama’s task force on climate change.

His strong record on issues and his attention to constituents lead me to believe that he is the best person to represent our district in Washington. That is why I am supporting Salud Carbajal for Congress this June.
