Kimber, Democratic candidate for California’s 50th Congressional District office currently held by Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine), received the official endorsement of the California Democratic Party at the state convention in Los Angeles this past weekend.

Kimber, who served 20 years on active duty service in the United States Navy, feels issues involving our veterans are being inadequately addressed. Particularly he wants to address the rising numbers of homeless veterans and epidemic of suicide amongst veterans. Mental health support and violence against women in the military are other issues Kimber says he believes we can do more for our veterans.

The candidate has 30 years of healthcare experience. He practices as a physician assistant in neurosurgery in Escondido nd is on the medical stafff at Palomar Medical Center, A press release issued by Kimber’s campaign states that he “knows there is much more to do with healthcare reform but also knows we can’t go back to millions of people without insurance or people being denied health insurance for pre-existing conditions.”

Kimber supports immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. “There is a way to fix the current system but only if we all work together. Immigration reform is long overdue and people are tired of hearing excuses for why Congress won’t act on it now. The time for immigration reform is now!”
