Gil Cisneros

Most people, upon winning the lottery, might buy a big yacht, check out, and leave it all behind. Not Gil Cisneros, who won the lottery, became a philanthropist, and set out to improve the lives of schoolchildren and veterans. His non-profit organization works to improve public schools and provide educational opportunities for young people and veterans. Gil is a decorated Navy veteran with degrees in political science and education policy. The choice in this race is really clear. Gil’s opponent, Young Kim, went to work for incumbent Congressman Ed Royce 25 years ago, and her views are so close to his that we can expect more of the same from her – more denial of health care and more tax cuts for the wealthiest.
