Incumbent Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) is seeking a fourth straight term representing District 15. His challenger is Rudy Peters (R-Livermore), a Navy veteran and owner of a systems engineering firm.

Swalwell is the strong voice the Tri-Valley needs in Congress.

The former Dublin councilman and Alameda County prosecutor continues to be a presence throughout his district and is responsive to constituents.

He remains committed to Tri-Valley goals such as securing funds for the Valley Link rail service, supporting our innovation economy and modernizing schools. Though a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, Swalwell said he hopes to work with a more bipartisan House in the next term to complete bills that align with some stated Trump goals such as the trillion-dollar infrastructure plan, prescription drug costs, DREAM Act and reducing corruption.

Peters has a laundry list of priorities, locally and nationally, but with no prior elected service at any level, he lacks the experience and political clout needed of an effective legislator. He also argues Swalwell doesn't focus enough on improving his district and constituents' lives. We disagree and look forward to seeing what Swalwell can accomplish in the next two years.

Re-elect Eric Swalwell for Congressional District 15.
