Talat Khan   Female   My candidacy for delegate is about inclusion of new and varied voters and activists in our assembly district. We need to strengthen our party in order to protect ideals of equality, diversity, education and economic stability against growing forces in the Republican party. I have been heavily involved in political activism for over fifteen years, having been involved in the efforts of presidential, mayoral, congressional, and state assembly campaigns. I have been a delegate for years, and am currently on the Affirmative Action Committee. I am a family practitioner for the past 28 years. I am also a retired Captain of the US Air Force, and have been active in my community, having served on the executive board of the Human Relations Council of Pomona Valley and helping found a free health clinic in San Bernardino. I also received the Women of the Year from the YWCA. I am a mother of three children who are now active members of society. My roles as a doctor, activist and mother have made me focus on life for all of us, able to focus both on our state and country for the present while setting realistic goals for the future.
