Skinner Wins June 2016 Primary!
Thank you voters of State Senate District 9 for your support in the June primary. We won every city and both counties in SD9! Now it’s on to November.
As your State Senator I will work to make a real difference for our families by putting California on a path toward universal preschool, restoring justice to our criminal justice system and reinvesting in education.
Tackling big challenges like housing availability and affordability, and growing income inequality is what motivates me. Challenges I believe we can take on and resolve together, just as we did when I served in the State Assembly.
Fighting for our progressive values I took on the Gun Lobby and passed strong gun control legislation. I took on big corporations and closed tax loopholes, generating a billion dollars to pay for our schools and vital services. When sexual assault crimes were left unsolved, I carried the bill to require evidence from “rape kits” be tested. I carried bills to double rooftop solar and expand California’s renewable energy goals. And I championed successful criminal justice reform to reduce sentences for nonviolent offenders and provide alternatives to prison for at risk youth.
I hope you will join NOW, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Sierra Club, Equality California, Planned Parenthood, most of our local Democratic Clubs and hundreds of elected and community leaders in voting Nancy Skinner for State Senate on November 8, 2016.
