Eastin on why she’s running
“What we need is a fundamental change in the direction that California is taking. We have leadership that is Democratic, yet we have been neglecting education.”
Eastin on housing
“I believe we ought to build affordable housing near the transportation hubs and we did that when I was on the city council in Union City.”
Eastin on health care
“Every single first-world country has some kind of healthcare for all. Why we don’t, I don’t understand. But I really feel it’s time that somebody in California led on this issue.”
