Statement: As an attorney and our State Senator, Patty Kuderer fights for us every step of the way.
While too many politicians pander to special interests, Patty stands apart in her commitment to our community and her leadership in delivering bipartisan results. This session she worked to pass legislation to reduce gun violence, increase affordable housing, improve our public schools, and raise teacher pay.
Patty works tirelessly to ensure every person in our community has access to affordable and quality healthcare. She opposed last year’s statewide property tax hike and is committed to fixing our broken tax system. Patty also advocates for a public bank, which will save taxpayer dollars while funding critical infrastructure across our region. Her leadership on education means hungry kids can eat breakfast at school and hard of hearing students will receive the support they need to be successful. Patty is a fighter, committed to improving our schools, building safer communities, and reducing taxes for families and seniors.
