Here is some further info about Silke Pfleuger:

Pflueger’s concerns focus on the housing crisis, fire resiliency and health care. She wants to work on public and private partnerships to bring more housing to the district, ensure homeowners can obtain insurance and have affordable and accessible health care.

According to Pflueger, Democrats must state what they stand for and what they’d bring to office if elected.

“We can deepen that message and win that way,” she said. “We have to keep running.”
