The Asian American Action Fund endorsed Representative Ami Bera for United States Congress. Bera is running for re-election in California’s 7th Congressional District. The 7th district is located just east of California’s capitol city, Sacramento, and lies entirely within Sacramento County.
Bera has represented Sacramento County and the 7th District since 2013. A first-generation American born and raised in California, Bera is guided by a desire to serve his community. Congressman Bera has also made it a priority for his office to make government work for Sacramento County. His office has now helped return more than $5.2 million to local taxpayers – everything from backlogged veterans’ benefits to Social Security savings. Congressman Bera is focused on creating more jobs and opportunities in Sacramento County and helping families keep up with changes in our economy. That’s why his office has held job fairs to connect unemployed workers with jobs, created a comprehensive Job Seeker Resource guide to help jobless residents, and has supported crucial infrastructure projects such as upgrading the Folsom Dam to create jobs and to improve safety.
