Biography: Vigueras says she decided to challenge Cabrera because of his conservative choices. “Legislators should be focused on moving people out of poverty and making sure all residents have the opportunity to live in good homes, a quality education, nutritional counseling, safe streets, the freedom and right to love and marry whoever they want, equal employment opportunities, job training, quality health services regardless of income, and absolute autonomy over decisions involving their bodies and reproductive health,” reads Vigueras’ campaign site.
