AS a delegate, I pledge to support a platform where comprehensive immigration reform is a high priority for our party and not just a lip service to get votes. AS a delegate, I pledge to support a platform where adequate education funding, livable wage and support for the working families of this state stay the primary goals for our Party. Thank you and I hope for your support.
