Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Gil is not a passive observer on the issue of job creation. As an American Marshall Fellow, he was able to engage business leaders and elected officials in Europe on their economic development strategies and policies. He used his skills and knowledge to play a key role in saving thousands of jobs in the San Fernando Valley."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Gil is proof positive that a quality education is the best way to ensure the children of California succeed. He will fight to ensure our children aren’t short changed when it comes to adequate facilities and access to the most qualified teachers."
  • Taxes and Spending
Excerpt: "Gil understands that all too often our state’s elected officials seek to rely on taxing hard working Californians as the sole means of balancing the budget. He feels that this is irresponsible leadership."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "One of Gil’s priorities will be reliable and affordable energy. He feels it is imperative that California lead the way in continuing investments in alternative energy and at the same time provide incentives to business and entrepreneurs to create cost effective and energy saving technologies."
  • Pension Reform
Excerpt: "Gil applauds the Governor and the Senate Republicans for adopting the Governor’s 12 Point Pension Reform plan. This is a good start moving forward. We’ve been able to negotiate favorable future pension obligations."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "Gil will support logical environmental policies that are mindful of our states wildlife and limited natural resources. Clean water and air is a goal every Californian must strive for and our government has an obligation to ensure we as leaders adopt legislation that is good for our environment and good for our economy."
