I am excited to announce my campaign for California's State Assembly, District 24.

For nearly 25 years, I have been honored to work alongside so many of you to advance and improve our community, unique in all the world – Silicon Valley. Advising top inventors as an IP attorney, fighting poverty as President and board member of the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, promoting sport and women's equality with the founding of Women's Professional Soccer, and resolving disputes as a volunteer mediator for federal courts, has been a privilege.

I am ready to apply my experience and passion for this region to bring a fresh perspective to Sacramento. Our state government is too often defined by the same old ideas and well-worn arguments, even as the challenges California faces continue to change. It's time we bring the spirit of innovation that has helped make Silicon Valley the economic engine of the world to the halls of California's Capitol.

With your support, I will be a champion for education, an informed voice on science, technology, and environmental issues, and a leader on advancing social justice.

Your support and encouragement to seek this office has been my inspiration, and now we need to build the momentum necessary to get to Sacramento. You can stay up to date with the latest on our campaign here, and I will continue reaching out with updates over the coming weeks and months.

Please join me in this campaign to advance both our District and our State in this time of great challenge, but of even greater potential, and invite your friends and colleagues to join, too.

With sincere thanks and regard –
