Kate Sanchez - Businesswoman, Taxpayer Advocate, Mom
Kate Sanchez is a proud mother, small businesswoman, former non-profit executive, proven advocate against tax increases and for improving education, parental rights, and choice in our schools, as well as solutions to homelessness, and a strong pro-public safety ally.
Kate has worked for numerous lawmakers and began her career working for the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, former Congressman Ed Royce.
Next, Kate joined the California Policy Center, which explored nonpartisan, common-sense education reform and solutions to California’s current public-school crisis.
As a working mother, this was an issue of top importance to Kate. Every child deserves access to quality education of their parents’ choosing, and zip code should not determine opportunity.
Additionally, she worked on consequential projects such as TransparentCalifornia.com. While at California Policy Center, Kate successfully organized and launched the first Children’s Business Fair, which brought together young entrepreneurs and community stakeholders from across the state to support future business leaders.
As the former Executive Director of the California Women’s Leadership Association (CWLA), Kate collaborated with women in leadership positions across California to further champion and support women’s involvement in public policy discussion and advocacy.
Kate’s advocacy on behalf of California residents doesn’t end there. Working along with Reform California, a non-profit taxpayer advocacy group supporting citizen ballot initiatives to hold government accountable, she fought hard for Yes on Proposition 6 to repeal state gas tax increases.
Kate is also a proud graduate of the Marian Bergeson Excellence in Public Service Series and holds a B.A. with a concentration in Political Science/Law from Salve Regina University.
Kate and her family have lived in the 71st Assembly District for over 30 years.
Service Above Self
As a mother, and granddaughter of two military service members. Service above self has always been my focus.
During the height of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, my uncle, Father Angelo D’Agostino, was called to open an orphanage for HIV-positive children, in Africa.
As a young teenager, I was able to spend time with these children in Nairobi, and what a life-changing experience it was!
It was then that I knew, I may be one voice, but in our incredible country, I can stand up for personal freedoms, and the liberties protected under our Constitution.
While so many of our assembly members, mayors, and elected officials kept silent and went along with unconstitutional government abuse and overreach.
I DID NOT AND WILL NOT!
I will be an unwavering voice against government abuse and overreach. I will fight and serve you and be your voice in Sacramento.
It is time we sent a representative to Sacramento that understands Service Above Self and that my job is to represent and fight for you.
Kate Sanchez - Child Advocate
As Californians, we have all persevered despite the devastating effects Sacramento’s mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic has had and continues to have on our families, our businesses, our freedoms, and our school children.
But as a working mother, I am my child’s biggest advocate. When letters to local officials, calls, and rallies went unanswered, I said enough!
We need someone in Sacramento who will fight for our children.
Our children are not political pawns!
Every child deserves access to quality education of their parents’ choosing. A zip code or family wealth should not determine opportunity.
I have fought and will continue to fight for our children, their education, and our parental rights.
It is time we sent a Mama Bear to Sacramento to show them that parents are in charge, not government bureaucrats or powerful special interest groups.
