The 50th District

I serve the most beautiful district in Congress. Get to know all the vibrant communities I am honored to represent:


San Marcos - San Marcos, a progressive community of more than 95,000 residents, is home to Palomar College and California State University San Marcos. In recent years, the city has experienced rapid growth while consistently ranking as one of the safest cities in California.
Escondido - Established in 1888, Escondido (which means “hidden” in Spanish) lies in a long valley around 30 miles northeast of San Diego. Surrounded by avocado and citrus groves, Escondido is a diverse, vibrant community with a mix of small-town friendliness and big-city buzz.
Rancho Santa Fe - Rancho Santa Fe’s history dates back to 1841, when it was known as Rancho San Dieguito, and was a Mexican land grant. After Santa Fe Railway purchased the land grant decades later, the railroad’s company developed a planned community of country estates and renamed the area “Rancho Santa Fe.” The land plan seen today in Rancho Santa Fe (distinguished by low density and high green space) was originally established in the 1920s by renowned architect Lilian Rice.

Fairbanks Ranch - A gated community just south of Rancho Santa Fe boasts 75 acres of grounds and estates.


San Pasqual Valley - The San Pasqual Valley marks the northeastern corner of the City of San Diego, and its intersection with the City of Escondido.  Home to the World Famous San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and the San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park, the Valley offers a series of trails and old roads into the county’s agricultural heartland, and breathe taking views of an incredibly diverse ecosystem.


Rancho Bernardo - The quaint and quiet community of Rancho Bernardo brings together the best of our culture and history. Home to a variety of world renowned golf courses and country clubs, there are plenty of options to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The community's high school, Rancho Bernardo High School, is also a countrywide hot spot known for producing some of Major League Baseball’s top talent. 


4S Ranch - One of the “newest” communities built in San Diego County, 4S Ranch was formerly owned by the Ralphs family, famously known for their grocery chain throughout southern California.  The 4S Community has a welcoming, family-friendly attitude with shops for just about anything located right in the heart of the neighborhood and just a short walk from most residents.


Black Mountain Ranch - Located in the northern shadow of its namesake, Black Mountain Ranch was just recently developed to help house our ever growing San Diego community.  Home to the neighborhoods of Del Sur and Santaluz, Black Mountain Ranch is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city, while only being a short drive away.


Rancho Peñasquitos - Named after the first Mexican land grant in San Diego County, Rancho Peñasquitos is nestled nicely right in between Black Mountain and Peñasquitos Creek. The neighborhood of PQ, as it is commonly known, is home to many locally-owned businesses and ample park space where families and friends enjoy their weekends.


Carmel Mountain Ranch - Carmel Mountain Ranch is one of the smallest communities in San Diego. With just over 12,000 residents, CMR offers plenty for families and children alike including the Carmel Mountain Ranch public library, Carmel Mountain Ranch Golf Course, and Highland Ranch Park.


Sorrento Valley - Home to San Diego’s life sciences, biotechnology, and IT sectors. Sorrento Valley is the Silicon Valley of Southern California. Major company headquarters in this community includes Qualcomm, Chicken of the Sea, and Arena Pharmaceuticals. The area's newest company is a San Diego office for Google.


University City/UTC – Home to cutting-edge research companies and hours of shopping. South UC is a neighborhood rooted in the community. Separating the two sides is Rose Canyon, one of San Diego's most pristine and accessible open spaces.


La Jolla - Bluffs, beaches, and long walks along the Cove. Whether you stroll about the Village or survey the city from the Mount Soledad summit, La Jolla will never disappoint. Home to the University of California, San Diego. 


Bird Rock - Calling all surfers and coffee drinkers! Swing ‘round the Boulevard and enjoy the bustling shops and beautiful homes. Bird Rock awaits you.


Pacific Beach - A small beach town in a big city, Pacific Beach is the destination for a sunny day in the sand followed by a vibrant night on the town.


Mission Beach - Along this beach's extensive and bustling boardwalk, one can walk, run, skate, drink and enjoy the sunshine and the sound of the ocean. Mission Beach is also a short distance from the bay and offers countless water activities to enjoy in the summer. 


Ocean Beach - A quintessential California beach town, few places have mastered the combination of eclectic and community as Ocean Beach. The Obeacean lifestyle is both surfing and sunsets, but it's also the sense of home that exists only at the end of Interstate 8.


Point Loma - The gateway to San Diego and home to a rich fishing tradition and the site of San Diego's only National Monument.  From defending our nation at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot and Naval Base Point Loma, Point Loma is also home to Nazarene University and leaves us in awe at Sunset Cliffs.


Coronado - This quaint beach community is known for its local charms, miles of pristine beaches, and the National Historic Landmark Hotel del Coronado. A proud Navy town, Naval Base Coronado occupies over half the area of the "island" and serves as home port to several aircraft carriers.


Downtown San Diego - A vibrant live, work and play neighborhood in the center of San Diego. Petco Park, Navy HQ, the Convention Center, and the historic Gaslamp Quarter, are all walking distance to the bay front. Downtown is a main attraction for residents and tourists alike.


Little Italy - The historic community was once home to over 6,000 Italian families who worked to build San Diego into the center of the world’s tuna industry. Today, this urban neighborhood is an artsy bayside neighborhood known for its boutique shopping, street festivals, and a hip dining scene.


Mission Hills - Mission Hills is a vibrant, historic neighborhood of San Diego situated on hills overlooking Old Town, Downtown San Diego, and San Diego Bay.

Bordering Balboa Park and minutes from Downtown, Hillcrest is one of San Diego’s liveliest neighborhoods.
