Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Hudson's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Economy
Excerpt: "Unemployment and under-employment are hurting our state's economy. This is one of the major forces in the foreclosure crisis. This also hurts the number one driver in the economy, the consumer. We need to create an economy that rewards job creators, that encourages small business."
  • Infrastructure
Excerpt: "California’s aging infrastructure is not keeping pace with the growth of our state. This is causing problems for public safety, wasting time and productivity in traffic backups, shortages in natural resources, and danger to average citizens."
  • Budget
Excerpt: "California needs to toughen up and balance the budget without hurting municipalities, public safety, or the economy. Each year the State must pass a budget by June 30th and it is the rare year that we actually pass the budget on time."
