Congresswoman Barbara Lee has filed to run for re-election in California’s 13th Congressional District. She has represented the district since 1998
“I am proud to live in and represent the East Bay, the most culturally diverse and vibrant place in the nation,” said Lee. “As your representative in Congress, I strive to advance economic security by working to build a fair economy that works for everyone.
“That means working to create jobs and sustainable economic growth, while supporting policies to reverse the trend that is building income inequality here and throughout the nation.”
She said her priorities include policies that include expanding access to high-quality, affordable education from pre-school to college and making significant investments in training workers for the jobs of the future.
“I am also advancing policies to build safer, healthier communities, protect the environment, address the challenge of climate change, secure fair and comprehensive immigration reform, end discrimination in all forms, ensure equal-pay for women, and achieve equal rights for our LGBT communities,” she said
