State Sen. Ricardo Lara of Long Beach may be best known for proposing universal health care in California. It’s an idea that attracted widespread attention but failed to clear the Legislature.
Lara, a Democrat, is running for insurance commissioner on the 2018 ballot. He recently attended a fundraising event in Fresno.
GV Wire caught up with him in our latest installment of “Take Five.” We asked him about:
- Insurance commissioner’s role
- The Trump factor
- Improving air quality
- Universal healthcare
- Saving California jobs
