Represents: A major step back from former AD-13 seatholder Susan Eggman
Supports: Allowing certain retailers ship environmentally-killing single-use plastics in state, slowly degrading our California environment
Opposes: Making any progress whatsoever on humanizing and modernizing our criminal system
Shameful Vote: Villapudua voted against AB503, a measure to help tailor rehabilitative programming to the needs of youth, instead of keeping them on probation for seemingly endless duration.
What Were They Thinking?: When the going gets tough, the tough get going — but Carlos Villapudua votes “present”. In over 60% of the bills on our scorecard, Villapudua refused to vote “yes” or “no” — did the people of AD-13 know they were voting for an empty chair?
