Campaign #121: Katie Hill for Congress, CA-25
Ready for another opportunity to flip a Congressional seat in California?
Katie Hill is a true progressive who has spent her entire career in public service. Shortly after finishing her Masters in Public Administration, she began working for the non-profit organization People Assisting the Homeless (PATH), eventually becoming their Executive Director. Under her leadership, PATH grew from a small local outfit to California’s largest provider of homes for the homeless.
Hill has been endorsed by Kamala Harris, U.S. Senator (CA), saying, “Katie will fight for our ideals, for our rights, and to guarantee fairness and equality for all.”
Republican incumbent Steve Knight has tried to persuade voters he’s a compassionate centrist, particularly on immigration, the top issue in his district. (Nearly 40% of voters in CA-25 are Hispanic.) But actions speak louder than words, and his voting record tells a much different story. According to FiveThirtyEight.com, only three current members of Congress have voted with Trump more consistently than Knight. He has a long track record supporting ultra-conservative policies dating back to his days in the California state legislature.
Knight has voted in favor of every high profile anti-immigrant bill since joining the House in 2015. This includes a bill that withdrew funding to local governments which acted to prohibit law enforcement from requesting an individual’s immigration status. As a California State Senator, he voted “nay” on every major bill that would improve the quality of life for immigrants. His record on health care is equally troubling.
I don’t think you need any more reasons to support Katie Hill for Congress. She and her team have run an excellent campaign to put her in position to take this seat.
Together we’re going to let voters know why she is the best choice to represent them. Thank you!
