Campaign themes

Gionis stated the following political platform in a biographical submission to Ballotpedia.[2]

"Political Platform - The "People's Congresswoman." Successful businesswoman and educator who will go to Washington, D.C., in 2013, representing her constituents, regardless of political ideology or party. Gionis is a results oriented candidate whose impetus for a political campaign to U.S. Congress was her observation that the constituents of her District were suffering with the highest unemployment rate in the nation along with widespread and very serious issues of poverty. Congresswoman Gionis has promised to serve the People when elected to the U.S. Congress and will ensure that their basic needs are met first. She has presented plans that will then provide extensive educational and employment opportunities throughout California's 51st District, to include a new medical school to directly address the economic and health issues of the Imperial County, California."
