Portrait-28.jpgWelcome!

I’m running for State Assembly to serve the people of Alameda and Santa Clara Counties. I’m not a career politician. I would bring new ideas to the table and ensure that your needs and concerns always come first.

As your representative, I would prioritize schools, innovation, and a bottom-up approach of listening to local input.

Please take a moment to learn more, sign up for updates or contribute. Thank you for your consideration and support.

There's no turning backI need your help now more than ever. Can you make a contribution today of $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000 or whatever you can afford?

February has been an incredible month for our State Assembly campaign.

On February 8, we received the most votes when local members of the Democratic Party came together to choose which candidate the Party should endorse in our race. While no candidate received the necessary 70 percent of the vote needed to win the State Democratic Party’s endorsement outright, I am honored that we received the most votes.

I have never been a politician, but I do know from my years in public service that you have to show up, you have to work hard, and you have to listen, in order to bring people together and earn their trust. And I am humbled by the show of support we received from the members of the Democratic Party.

And there's more good news...

Steckler, 69, a Democrat, said Thursday he has hired a campaign consultant, is gathering endorsements and is scoping out potential contributors. “It’s kind of in its infancy stages.”
