The 3rd Congressional District is home to Travis Air Force Base, the largest air mobility organization in the Air Force and the largest employer in Solano County, and Beale Air Force Base, which is located in Yuba County performs a vital Intelligence, Surrveilance, and Reconnaisance mission. I am honored to represent thousands of veterans, military personnel, and their families, and I am committed to protecting their welfare and providing them with every opportunity to prosper. I have a 100% pro-veterans record, fighting for better medical services and educational opportunities for veterans. I am also the author of two bills to help veterans get jobs and avoid predatory debt practices. H.R. 6293, the Servicemembers Rights Enforcement Improvement Act of 2012, and H.R. 3860, the Help Veterans Return to Work Act.
Since entering Congress, I have hosted a Women Veterans Fair and Veterans Jobs Fair, along with a workshop to help faith-based, non-profit, and public care providers better serve veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I will continue to fight for better services for all veterans, especially those who are homeless, jobless, and suffering from the mental and physical scars of war.
I look forward to your feedback. Thank you.
