California is suffering from a legislature that has little interest in acting fiscally responsible. Our budget and laws create a structural deficit that works against the people of California and fail to provide accountability to taxpayers. Instead of discipline, innovation and transparency, Sacramento operates with gimmicks and broken promises -- leaving you and me to pick up the tab.
My experience as a Trustee of the Ceres Unified School Board demonstrates my success in promoting essential government services and keeping budgets balanced. My budgetary accomplishments are built on sound economic principles, such as spending only what you can afford. I'll bring that experience and success to Sacramento to return accountability and responsible government spending to our state.
Transportation Californians voted to prioritize investments in infrastructure and reduce traffic congestion. But where are the new roads? Let's get moving again by getting to the bottom of the waste and broken promises for better roads and necessary repairs. As your State Senator, I'll work to clear the bureaucratic road blocks and get promised infrastructure funding moving. I'll work to prioritize infrastructure funding and make sure that what we voted on and paid for is built.
