Economy and Jobs

More than three years after the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, we are still in the midst of a jobs crisis. We have both a short-term jobs problem and a long-term jobs problem. Right now, we need to put people to work. Without a job and a paycheck, people can’t spend money, and that hurts businesses and depresses the economy.

Education

It has become more and more essential for young people to get some kind of post-high school education – whether college or advanced technical training. We have a choice: are we going to tell our young people that they are on their own, or are we going to invest in them – and in our own future?

Environment

Carbon-heavy fuels also intensify the risks of climate change. The science is unmistakable: Earth’s climate is changing and human activities are contributing to climate change. Climate change endangers our health and national security, it threatens agricultural production and the availability of clean water, and it risks floods and droughts.

Healthcare

Today, there are two pressing challenges: too many want to repeal health reforms that will make a big difference in people’s lives and the cost of health care remains too high.

Immigration

This is a country that came to greatest because of immigrants. They came to have freedom, to believe, and seek safety from violence, and to be free of persecution.

Small Business Development

Self-employed workers and small businesses, and the community banks and credit unions that fund them, are drowning in complicated regulations. Long, complex rules create loopholes that the big companies can take advantage of, but they leave little guys out in the cold. More Americans working means more customers for our small businesses, and more customers means more growth.

About The Candidate

Dr. Rita Ramirez (D) is vying again for the 8th California Congressional District for House of Representatives seat.  While previously defeated in the 2016 election [see CAMPAIGN FINANCE], her concerns and views for the people of the high and low desert communities of the 8th have not faltered and her resolve to be of service has grown even stronger under the present white house administration.

Dr. Rita Ramirez Overview

I believe in working toward the goals for everyone.  I believe in the American Dream.  My leadership style is to bring positive change and growth by embracing technology with an understanding of cultures and minorities.

Serving the community of the high and low desert for over 25 years, involved in over 50 community boards and activities, Dr. Rita Ramirez is part of the fabric of the desert communities.  As a multi credentialed educator, whom has been in the community classrooms for over 35 years, she has taught many of the areas business leaders in the classroom and in the boardroom.  She has been involved in the politics of the community for over two decades and has held or holds distinguished positions in the California Democratic Party and California Democratic Council.

While a life-long Democrat, Dr. Rita Ramirez uses her education and experience to weigh in on the variety of issues for the community, the state and for the country.
