What made you want to run?


I found out my very own District Senator (My now opponent) was the one who's been trying to push myself and my family out of work for a year now!
My mom relies on the income I bring home for healthcare, food, housing, and much more. Read more about it on the "Meet Roger" tab.

Do you want election reform?



We need to limit the influence that large corporations and the wealthy have over our democracy. Millionaires and Billionaires should not be able to buy elections. That’s why I support giving citizens a voucher to donate to candidates or issues of their choice. This gives power back to the people and dilutes the influence of corporate money.

We must ensure that there are as few barriers to voting as possible. We should not disenfranchise any group of citizens, instead we should work to expand the right to vote.
I think having voting booths, and polls open for 10 days stright would be a strong step forward. Once elected I'll propose bills to support that.

Universal Healthcare?


Healthcare is a human right and everyone deserves world class healthcare. With the Trump administration’s gutting of Obamacare, it is crucial that we immediately step up and stabilize the healthcare market in California while taking steps towards a single payer healthcare system. We must send a clear message that we will only move forward and that we will never return to the previous status quo were women were charged more for healthcare and many sick people and their families went bankrupt. We won’t allow insurance companies to start denying people with pre-existing conditions, nor will we stand idly by while thousands of people are priced out of the market and denied life saving treatments. Our first step must be to mitigate the damage caused by the Trump administration. We can do this by creating our own statewide individual mandate and restricting the sale of short-term plans that skimp on actual coverage. We then need to enact a single payer system where every Californian has world class coverage.
