Helping Homeowners

Excerpt: "There are many struggling homeowners in and around the San Fernando Valley that are in need and deserve assistance to afford their home."

Education

Excerpt: "Ensuring that our Schools, Teachers, and Parents have the Funding and Tools they need to encourage our Children and Young Adults to succeed."

Homelessness

Excerpt: "With over 600,000 people homeless on any given night within our Country, and at lease 82,000 of those are homeless in Los Angeles. This is not only dismal but Candidate Venice Gamble believes that the only acceptable number of homeless is 0."

Immigration

Excerpt: "The United States of America is the greatest country in the world. We are the country where dreams and made true every day. Many people, from all over the globe come to our county in search for a better life for their families and for themselves. Candidate Gamble has stood and watched how there are several bills debated within the House and the Senate, with no change to come for those who simply want to immigrate, work, pay taxes, and live a lawful and peaceful life in the United States of America "

Fiscal Responsibility

Excerpt: "Each year in the news media, we all hear how the house and senate cannot come to an agreement in a sound and strong budget and would rather allow the country to default on their obligations, or institute a furlough program that hurts families. The time has come for comprehensive change and reform."
