As a State Assemblywoman I fought for better schools, a better environment and better health care for all Californians. I created the Select Committee on Low Performing Schools, established dioxin monitoring throughout California and served as the California Delegate to the World Trade Organization conference. I achieved a 100% pro-choice, pro-environment and pro-senior voting record. I've been nominated as "Legislator of the Year" by the School Board Association and the Federation of Business and Professional Women. As Governor I will tackle our high energy prices, sluggish economy and failing schools. I received my Master's Degree at Harvard. I'm a small businesswoman, published author and proud mother. I ask for your vote to create a better California for our children. My website: www.BetterCalifornia.org.
