As climate change progresses, we see the continued stress on trees & a proliferation of pine beetles, resulting in sudden death of trees. I don’t live next to nat’l or state forest. All around me are privately owned lots. I’m on an acre, so are my neighbors on each side. #CA01
The guy behind us is on 5 acres. It’s thickly wooded. My next door neighbor on 1 acre had about 3 or 4 (maybe more) trees suddenly die. She cut them down. Over 6 years, we’ve cut down 7. There are dead trees across fwy from me. I’ll bet there are some on the 5 acres behind me.
I drive a couple of miles to local grocery store, passing homes of various lot sizes. Wooded. Dead trees here & there. Not cut down yet. It’s expensive! Really expensive! We’ve spent about $4k removing trees. My lot is sparsely treed. Others are pretty thick. #CA01

Two points about healthcare in #CA01 -- First point: When it comes to cost, two thirds of bankruptcies in our country are related to a medical crisis. I was almost one of them. (2/8)
When I took a leave of absence from my job as an educator to run for Congress in #CA01 & campaign full-time, my employer convinced me to continue health insurance via COBRA. I’m grateful they did. No one should go bankrupt because of health issues. (3/8)
