Laura WellsCandidate for Controller 2022

There are some very basic things we should have.  We know we could have better, happier, and healthier lives for our families and the generations to come, but not while the billionaires and their corporations run the country. My campaign supports many more issues than this list, and each one is as important as the other… Because they are all connected! And so  are ALL OF THE SOLUTIONS.
