I grew up in the California of the 1960’s and 70’s when we had well-funded youth programs. I learned to play the guitar at a free summer school program, and have played my entire life. I want kids growing up today to have what I had.

I support Sac Kids First because I believe that education doesn't just happen in the classroom. Funding after school programs, such as athletics and service projects, will enable young adults to develop leadership skills and gain a sense of pride in themselves and in their communities.

Real investment in our youth may take a 10 year period.  Remember, our acknowledgment of the importance of early childhood education can best be supported with continued quality support thru mentoring, quality alternative programming, job preparedness and college prep services.

We can finally establish what Sacramento is missing which is a dedicated children’s fund. This is just the beginning of our dream goal that we all have been waiting for since we started this effort in 2015.

I support Sacramento Kids First because I understand the difference that art and music education makes in early childhood development and building social/emotional intelligence.  If children are really the future, we should give them all the tools which will allow them to live healthy, safe, and successful lives.
