Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Pham's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Revitalize our Economy

  • Excerpt: "I’ll work to repeal high taxes and heavy regulations that have earned California the reputation as unfriendly to business and job growth."

Stop Runaway Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "I’ll fight for a real spending cap that stops the overspending in Sacramento. I’ll also fight to balance the State’s budget by stripping away useless and unproductive programs. Every program must have a top-to-bottom audit, and those that are ineffective and unneeded must be immediately ended."

Protect California Taxpayers

  • Excerpt: "I oppose raising taxes. Period. We already pay enough taxes in this State, and we have enough revenues to accomplish what we need. Instead, I’ll fight for a streamlined government that is lean, efficient, and effective."

Preserve Proposition 13

  • Excerpt: "I believe in Proposition 13’s property tax protections, and I’ll fight to keep these protections in place."

Upgrade Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe our schools must focus on math and technology and other basic fundamentals. I’ll work to upgrade class rooms and ensure schools have the local freedom, and local dollars, to deliver cutting edge training in math, the sciences, reading, history and basics. We must ensure our children are prepared to compete in the global market place."
