MEET JESSICA HOLCOMBE
I am a fourth generation Northern Californian and an attorney in Auburn. I am the oldest of seven kids, and growing up, we were poor. At times we were homeless and without health insurance. Thanks to financial aid, I was able to attend college and law school. That is why I am fighting for affordable healthcare for all, free public universities, increased funding for our public schools, a living wage, and affordable daycare and housing.
AN ADVOCATE FOR OUR DISTRICT
Following the election of 2016, I joined a non-partisan political action group whose members asked me to run for Congress. On the campaign trail, I have reached out to members of our communities and studied the challenges of our rural district. I am an advocate for Medicare for All, which would reduce the cost of healthcare for businesses and individuals significantly. I support affordable housing and daycare to ensure working families have access to home ownership, can advance their careers and build savings. In order for Americans to break the chains of poverty and live prosperously, we must provide access to affordable higher education and vocational training. In addition, I support a path to citizenship for our DREAMers and our hardest workers on our farms and in construction.
As an attorney, I negotiate with opposing groups with competing interests in order to find solutions that meet our common goals. I advocate for policies that help both businesses and families, and I will reach across the aisle to pass legislation benefiting Americans in rural and urban communities.
To ensure the future of our planet, grow our economy, and help businesses and households save on utility costs, I support reliance on renewable energy, an increasingly more affordable option than fossil fuel sources. In addition, we must ensure increased funding to promote soil conservation, preserve our national parks and monuments, prevent wildfires, and promote agtech and water conservation.
I’M RUNNING FOR CONGRESS TO FIGHT FOR ALL AMERICANS WHO NEED AN EFFECTIVE VOICE IN WASHINGTON
Our nation is at a crossroads. We need elected officials who will enact policies to benefit American families, protect our national treasures, ensure access to healthcare and immigration reform, and promote the success of small businesses.
