Campaign themes

De Vries' website listed the following issues:

  • Taxes & Revenue
Excerpt: "Even though California is on the brink of bankruptcy (a.k.a. insolvency) thanks to out of control government spending (state spending is equal to 1/4 of the wealth of the state), it still can be fixed. We don’t have a revenue problem; we have a spending problem."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "Earl is vice chairman of West Valley Friends of the National Rifle Association, the educational branch of the NRA, raising funds for gun safety programs for adults and children and protecting our gun rights."
  • AB32
Excerpt: "AB32 is a hair-brained job-killer, and Earl will work to support Prop23, which will suspend AB32 until unemployment reaches 5.5%"
  • Pro-Life and Traditional Family
Excerpt: "Earl is unashamedly pro-traditional family and pro-life." He was endorsed by the California Prolife Council.
  • Water
Excerpt: "Restoring contracted water supplies to our farmers and ending the government imposed drought is a priority in our state!"
  • Less Foreign Oil Dependence
Excerpt: "Safe, sensible drilling for oil would bring jobs and revenue to California. It is unconscionable that we give money for oil to countries in the Middle East and Venezuela; we need to ensure energy independence from foreign countries."
  • Border Security
Excerpt: "Every nation has the right to secure its borders against threats of drugs, weapons, and human smuggling."
  • Crime & Punishment
Excerpt: "The solution to crime is a moral one involving personal responsibility and accountability as well as strict law enforcement, not cutting prisoners loose."[2]


De Vries and his wife, Judy, have two children.
