A Message From Hans:

The first priority of anyone seeking to represent their community should be to have open lines of communication between them and their community. That’s why I started the Keirstead for Congress Advisory Council.

The goal of the Advisory Council is to foster a direct relationship with members of the community to learn what is affecting their areas of interest and to find common ground between them in order to increase the quality of life for all Southern Californians.
