Heidi Hall was a 2014 Democratic candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 1st Congressional District of California.[1] Heidi Hall lost the general election on November 4, 2014.


Hall earned her B.A. in International Relations from Pomona College in 1983. She went on to receive an M.A. from Columbia University in 1986 and from Rutgers University, Eagleton Institute of Politics in 1989. Hall has worked in conservation and environmental projects for the State of California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).[2]


Campaign themes


Hall's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Immigration: "One of the proudest parts of being an American is knowing that millions of people around the world wish they could live here. And one of the greatest challenges facing Congress is finding a way to fairly accommodate those who want to make new lives for themselves in the United States, while still providing a secure and orderly system for managing the millions of future Americans trying to earn their citizenship."
  • Campaign Finance Reform: "Our democracy can only function if we have an open exchange of ideas, but corporate cash threatens to drown out all other voices in the process. We need sensible campaign finance reform to protect our right to participate in the national conversation."
  • Fiscal Responsibility: " There’s nothing fair about a tax system that rewards the wealthiest corporations and CEOs while forcing middle class families to pay for it. Right now, some of America’s largest companies pay nothing in income tax, even while raking in record profits. Many even have negative tax rates, actually getting huge subsidies from the government while working families struggle."
  • Conservation: "When Republican President Teddy Roosevelt created the National Parks System, he did so because he understood that our natural resources are as much a part of our American legacy as our Constitution. We owe it to current and future generations to ensure that the economic, environmental, and recreational benefits our rural district offers aren’t squandered for short-term gain, but are responsibly managed to provide long-term opportunities for all our residents."
  • Public Safety: "There is no greater calling than risking your life to protect the lives of others. Every day, the men and women in law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency medical services around the country put themselves on the line to keep our families safe. We owe them a profound debt of gratitude. But we also owe them adequate funding to procure the equipment they need to do their jobs."
