Do you recall when an elected congressional member of our district held 3 face to face town hall meetings a month? In the past year, Rishi has met with neighbors in each of the 31 cities of our congressional district and has held 3 town hall meetings every month — one in each county. He also holds a weekly “Rush Hour with Rishi” video call.
America needs the right kind of leadership. Rishi has a people-centric agenda and will independently make choices..not at the behest of lobbyists. Rishi has! Rishi has met with neighbors in each of the district cities of San Mateo County to get a keen sense of the issues facing every city and every neighborhood.
What differentiates Rishi from Congresswoman Anna Eshoo:
Rishi has taken the pledge to not accept any special interest, PAC, or lobbyist dollar — his allegiance is with the people, not those trying to buy our elections. Congresswoman Eshoo is the #1 career recipient of campaign contributions from Big Pharma in the U.S. House of Representatives. https://tinyurl.com/RepEshooOpenSecretsPharma
Will elected leaders who accept all this money be able to truly represent the people?
THIS ELECTION IS ABOUT TRUST — WHO CAN YOU TRUST?
Read this report..Begins quote: “Anna Eshoo’s record on drug prices is terrible, and the reason why is obvious,” David Mitchell, founder of Patients For Affordable Drugs. “She’s taken enormous sums of money from drug corporations, and she does their bidding in Washington.”
“….and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Cal.) — the chair of the Energy and Commerce panel’s health subcommittee — have each continued to accept contributions from PACs affiliated with companies including Pfizer, Amgen, and Novartis throughout 2019”
“Patients for Affordable Drugs Now last year even sank $500,000 into ads attacking Eshoo for receiving drug industry money. “
“Democratic lawmakers’ continued willingness to accept pharmaceutical industry campaign contributions also comes despite a climate in which voters have come to dislike the pharmaceutical industry more than any other, according to a recent Gallup poll.”

Rishi is committed to listening.
