Campaign themes


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

  • Economy And Jobs
Excerpt: "Unemployment in California is hovering around 11%, more than the national average. Sacramento, under previous Republican Administration has created an unprecedented uncertainty with runaway deficit that was out of control. Businesses, small or large, shied away to invest in local economy."
  • Reduce Debt, Cut Spending And Fair Federal And State Tax
Excerpt: "The national debt and unfair tax burden on poor and on those who make far less is the biggest challenge to our Republic. The previous Republican government of State of California, due to it’s partisan and failed policies, had plunged the economy and the financial system into chaos. "
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "America is a Nation of Immigrants. We take pride in this notion. Immigrants are the pillars. An immigrant myself, I believe that when it comes to immigration, we have to see both sides. Immigration policy should be humane."
  • Cheaper And Safer Energy
Excerpt: "With sky rocketed gasoline prices on gas stations across the nation, the situation in California is far worst. Californians drive more than the average American. They drive long distances to their work place. There isn’t enough means of alternative transportation they could use."
