Sacramento, CA—Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA) filed paperwork to seek re-election, and outlined the vision for his campaign:
“Today I made it official: I filed my papers to seek re-election as the Representative for California’s 3rd Congressional District. We’ve accomplished a lot together, and there’s still so much more we can do. As part of the majority in the House of Representatives, I’m fighting for a brighter future for our region,” Garamendi said.
“I’m working to improve education for students young and old, create good middle-class jobs by rebuilding our nation’s crumbling infrastructure with American materials and workers, fight climate change, improve flood control, and ensure everyone has good, affordable health care,” Garamendi continued.
“This year, I’ve secured $181 million for Travis and Beale Air Force Bases, worked with USDA to provide relief for local farmers impacted by retaliatory tariffs, authored and passed unprecedented legislation to address the privatized military housing crisis and help the U.S. military prepare for the effects of climate change, protected Social Security and Medicare benefits, and passed legislation to help veterans that were harmed by toxins they were exposed to during their service,” Garamendi continued.
"It’s a privilege to serve you, and I would be honored to have your continued support,” Garamendi concluded.
