I will be focused on technology concerns central to the Silicon Valley as a member of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, the development and expansion of new technologies as a member of the Jobs, Economic Development and Economy Committee, and policies to enable our transportation system to keep up with the growing demands of the economy on the Transportation Committee.”
