How I Met Allyson

Hey there, I’m Marc, Allyson’s husband.  I’ve known Allyson since we were teenagers. We first met when we were both lifeguards in high school, and then we also both studied engineering at Cal Poly Pomona.  For the over three decades that I’ve known Allyson now, she’s always been committed to serving…

Young Kim = special interest puppet

Allyson doesn’t have the support of big drug and pharmaceutical companies, team.  She doesn’t have deep pockets from special interests like her opponent Young Kim.  And it's disgusting that Young Kim is not just a pawn for her special interest donors. She’s become a complete puppet for them and for …

None of this is possible without your help

Friends, we’re short of our fundraising goal by a lot right now.  Sarah, my campaign manager, just told me we’re still 68% away from raising $10,000. That means we still need to raise $6,800 before midnight tomorrow. I have to be honest, I thought we would be a lot further than that by now. But I k…

I remember what happened the night Donald Trump was elected

Hi friends, I’ll never forget election night in 2016. My daughters and I were so excited that Americans would finally elect a woman President.  But as we all know, that did not happen…  My son Julian was 13 at the time, and he was devastated because he was afraid of how Trump’s immigration policies …

My favorite song of all time 🎵

Friends, the song which tells the story of my life is from a Lin-Manuel Miranda musical – and no, not the one you're thinking of!  In "Breathe" from In The Heights, a Latina sings about the responsibility she feels to make her family and community proud. Here's a sample: "BREATHE" from In The Heig…

Jan. 6

Friends,  Three years ago today, our nation was attacked by its own people.   The attacks were incited by a narcissistic President seeking to upend democracy.   The worst part about the Jan. 6 insurrection was that some lawmakers refused to hold the rioters accountable, putting themselves above the…
