My Top 3 Priorities

I will leverage the extraordinary technical and financial resources of the richest, most innovative congressional district in America to act on the issues unaddressed for decades such as Medicare for All, reproductive rights, climate change, and stopping the senseless deaths of our children at school. I will defend our democracy, protect our seniors from the exploitation and privatization of Medicare, reduce crime, homelessness, inflation, taxes and utility rates from PG&E and SJWC
I will push for a cultural change in Washington with age & term limits, ban congressional insider trading, establish a collaborative problem-solving approach, not divisive partisan politics, with a people-centric agenda, not lobbyist-centric.
As the first tech-savvy representative, not a career politician, I will grow our economy, bring American jobs back to restore our supply chain integrity and ensure that our innovation economy thrives as the world's innovation hub.

I will expand Silicon Valley's Innovation Economy

As a software hi-tech executive, mechanical engineer by education, I know Silicon Valley's innovation economy and will work tirelessly to jumpstart cutting-edge innovation, restore the integrity of our supply chain, and bring tech jobs back.
With more than two decades of experience in Software and Artificial Intelligence, I have the expertise needed to guide Silicon Valley into a new era. Understanding the complexities of technology and addressing the challenges of AI and job automation is essential in today's fast-evolving tech world. My knowledge is key to preparing American workers and our economy for the future, ensuring Silicon Valley remains a global innovation leader.
I'll develop a Silicon Valley tech playbook for the greater good of America and the world. Innovation can be profit-driven, but it can't prey on our society's most vulnerable and should unite people, not divide them, while always protecting our privacy rights.

I am your crisis-ready Congressional Representative

When the pandemic broke out......I mobilized the calling of 86,000 seniors, helping them by delivering groceries, medications and N95 masks.
When wildfires forced evacuations......I helped neighbors find hotel accommodations and developed a wildfire prevention plan.
When my city experienced a spike in burglaries......I held over a hundred neighborhood meetings that eventually reduced burglaries by almost 50%.
When seniors were hurting because of San Jose Water Company's many rate hikes......I pushed back and defeated nine rate hikes.
When minors - local high school students - were stuck in Europe separated from their parents......I got them reunited with their families.
