The COVID-19 pandemic is a very real crisis for our public health and economy, and addressing it demands we come together.
In the Assembly, I am supporting comprehensive plans to help our state provide the healthcare services and economic assistance that will be needed to help California get through this crisis. I am grateful for the leadership of Governor Gavin Newsom, State Senate Pro Tempore Toni Atkins, and State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon who have taken strong and decisive action. As the Assembly’s Majority Whip, I will do all I can to support their efforts to enact swift and effective responses to this crisis.
I ask for all San Diegans to please abide by the Governor’s Stay at Home Executive Order, except for essential needs, which will help to limit the spread of the virus in our communities. You can find more information on the Stay at Home Order here >>
As this crisis continues to evolve, I will maintain my commitment in the Assembly to supporting vulnerable San Diegans, impacted workers, small business owners, and others facing the consequences of this crisis. I will bring that same commitment as San Diego’s next Mayor as we face the human and financial repercussions from this crisis in the future.
Remember we are all in this together, so please do your part to keep our community safe and healthy by washing your hands, maintaining social distance, and supporting the most vulnerable among us.
San Diegans are strong. We are resilient. And by pulling together, I know that our city will not only get through this uncertain period, but also thrive as we do.
