A former educator, Mr. Medina cares deeply about education and works to champion policies that improve the lives of students across the state. He believes that an educated workforce is critical to the success of California.

Mr. Medina recognizes the critical role higher education plays in supporting jobs and opening up the doors for opportunity.
