"I believe that even the toughest challenges can be overcome with grit, imagination, and a willingness to work together." And with that statement, Janessa Goldbeck announced her candidacy for the US House of Representatives.
Today, she is in the house with us. We will be talking about her vision and priorities and what she wants to accomplish for San Diego, California and the United States itself. She has already outlined infrastructure, affordable housing, addressing the rising cost of living, the wage gap and gun control as priorities (she identifies as "pro-2nd Amendment.")
According to BuzzFeed, Janessa spent nearly seven years in the Marines , graduated from Northwestern University and worked as a human rights activist lobbying Congress to end the genocide in Darfur. As a Marine, she participated in a government study that allowed women to volunteer for combat courses in the military. The study would lead to women’s integration in military combat and the repeal of the Combat Exclusion Policy, opening up all military jobs to women.
