A candidate for Mountain View City Council, Sally is a
proven leader with the vision and courage to take
on the tough issues affecting our community, and
is effective in getting real results.
Understanding Local Priorities
Sally began her career in public service on the Mountain
View City Council, where she also served as Mayor.
During her tenure as a local elected official, Sally worked
to create affordable housing, including teacher housing
and housing for other essential workers. She created
local tobacco control legislation to protect youth, led
green energy initiatives, worked to align the City with
our school districts and nonprofits, and worked to
ensure the participation of all communities within the
city in decision making. She worked tirelessly to protect
renters and homeowners in Mountain View's
mobile home parks.
As a County Commissioner and activist, she worked for vitally needed reforms to our juvenile justice and dependency care systems, and to instill a family and community strengths model in local policymaking.
Fighting for Economic Equality
During her tenure in the California State Assembly, Sally achieved major victories that increased
educational and economic opportunities. Sally authored or co-authored laws that increased California’s minimum wage, expanded Cal Grants for college students, and increased supportive housing and housing for low income households. She successfully advocated for mortgage protections for all Californians.
Protecting the Environment
Sally has been an environmental champion at the local and state level for decades. In the State Assembly, Sally was a leader in passing forward-thinking laws that established the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority to address sea level rise and restore Bay wetlands. Her clean air legislation has removed 10+ tons of cancer-causing particulate matter from our air each day. Sally also worked to successfully secure funding for healthy, energy efficient ‘green’ schools throughout California.
Protecting Victims and Survivors of Crime
Sally took the lessons she learned in local government to the State Assembly, where she created change by authoring or co-authoring laws that made human trafficking a felony, established the Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill of Rights, created courtroom protections for the developmentally disabled and cognitively impaired, and banned the use of the discriminatory ‘panic defense’ in hate crimes cases.
Sally is an activist and advocate for protection of seniors, people living with disabilities, and for reforms to shut down the school-to-prison pipeline.
Advocating with Purpose
A lifelong advocate for people in need, Sally has worked tirelessly, serving our communities by working to stop wage theft and empowering undocumented Californians, securing funding and access for teen pregnancy prevention and reproductive services, leading gun violence reduction measures, and working to provide compassionate aid to people that are homeless, or have been forced into refugee or migrant status.
