Marisa Wood is a public school teacher, mother and grandmother, and has spent her last 20 years serving the Bakersfield community that she calls home. Marisa knows that this district – and all of its families – deserve someone fighting for them in Washington, not a career politician who cares about his rich donors and fighting partisan battles.
Where Marisa Stands
On the Issues
Fossil Fuel Pledge
I have proudly signed the pledge to not accept any donation from the Fossil Fuel Industry
Promise to Constituents
Every vote I make; every piece of legislation I advance will be grounded in this question–am I meeting the needs of the constituents who depend on me?
As an educator for over 25 years, I know the foundational value of equitable education and the positive impacts on our Central Valley families and students.
As a teacher for the past 21 years in the Fairfax school district, I have seen my students and their families struggle accessing affordable quality healthcare.
As your elected Congress member, I will prioritize lifting my district from the high levels of poverty it has been plagued by since 2005.
I will adamantly defend a woman’s right to safe, accessible reproductive healthcare.
Veterans honored this country with their service, and it is absolutely appalling that they have to fight for the services they earned, such as healthcare and education.
he number of homeless youth, veterans, and Americans have been on the rise in Kern County and the country at an alarming rate over the past four years.
The Central Valley feeds the world! Water is pivotal to our economy and the thousands of agricultural working families that live here.
Seniors / Social Security
Too many seniors have to skip doctors appointments, skip their medication, or even skip meals, and that is not okay with me!
Environment & Clean Energy
As a grandmother to two perfect grandchildren, I will do all I can to ensure they have a planet that is clean and thriving in which to grow.
As the granddaughter of an Italian immigrant who came to America via Ellis Island, we are lucky that America became our home.
