In Congress, he will invest in the middle class through more affordable health care and housing, free community college, tackle climate change, protect a woman’s right to choose, and equal pay for equal work.
Kevin Mullin has served San Mateo County for over a decade as a South San Francisco city council member, Mayor, and Assemblymember since 2013. Mullin has gotten more than 60 of his bills signed into law during his tenure. He is running for Congress to fight for the future of our democracy and the planet.

In Congress, Mullin will work to ensure the country follows California’s lead to end the sale of new gasoline motor vehicles by 2035 and electrify public transit as CalTrain plans to do in its modernization plan.
