Campaign themes


Ornellas's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Repairing State Government
Excerpt: "Our State Legislature is not working. They spend too much and get too little. Taxes are unfair and too high. We need good paying jobs, but government policies punish those who create them."
  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "The state’s jobless rate is now among the nation’s highest. Our business climate is rated “the worst.” Good-paying manufacturing jobs are being replaced with minimum-wage service jobs."
  • Taxes and Government Spending
Excerpt: "California has one of the highest tax burdens in the nation and sadly we have little or nothing to show for it. Californians can no longer afford to bear the burden for an over-bloated and inefficient government. "
  • Public Safety
Excerpt: "As a County Supervisor I’ve worked tirelessly to keep families and business safe. In the State Senate I intend to do the same. I believe protecting the public is government’s top priority — and a job that I have always taken seriously."
  • Agriculture
Excerpt: "As a third generation dairy farmer in San Joaquin County and a ten-year County Supervisor, I have long been deeply involved in agricultural issues."
