As a husband, father, and small business owner, Michael knows what it takes to win in California’s Central Valley. Growing up on a farm in Turlock, Michael helped his parents run the family business and learned the value of hard work. Today, Michael still farms the same land he grew up on, operating an almond orchard and managing thousands of beehives that produce honey for families all across the state. Traveling up and down the Central Valley in his pickup truck to pollinate crops for local farmers, Michael understands the hardships faced by local families and business owners.
Michael is married to his college sweetheart, Stacey, and they have two daughters together. As a father and husband, Michael knows how tough it is for families to make ends meet.
We need a leader who understands the importance of finding a good job, the challenges of paying for a college education, and the need to protect our family farms. Michael is the only candidate with a vision to grow our economy and expand opportunity for Valley families.

"I firmly believe there is too much dark money in politics, made worse by the Supreme Court's disastrous decision in Citizens United. I fully support complete campaign finance reform and will aggressively work towards ensuring fairness and transparency in our elections." - Conner Eldridge
