Having grown up in Marin, I’ve seen up close the challenges that families—working families, essential low wage earners—face here every day. Sometimes, it’s the need for affordable childcare and help paying household bills. Sometimes, it’s just putting food on the table. My becoming a Champion for Marin means I get to help people get a better chance to succeed.
