Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Job Growth, Not Job Loss

"California is experiencing one of the worst recessions since the 1930s. Rather than proposing restrictions, additional taxes and unnecessary regulations that cause businesses to leave California, the State Assembly should be proposing incentives for existing businesses to stay and for new businesses to start and grow."[4]

Locally Managed Education

"With nearly 700,000 students, the Los Angeles Unified School District is too large to effectively manage the schools of the San Fernando Valley. The Valley needs its own, locally controlled school district to effectively provide for the needs of San Fernando Valley students. As the son of an LAUSD teacher and assistant principal, I know the stifling effects of bureaucracy and the “dance of the lemons” whereby poor teachers are reassigned to different classes or schools rather than removed from the classroom."[5]

No More Tax or Fee Increases

"California’s taxation rates are already among the highest in the nation for business and the second worst for personal income taxes. Valley residents pay 9.75% sales tax – an 18% increase from last year. Your DMV registration fees have almost doubled. The DWP has evolved into the piggy bank of the City of Los Angeles where tax increases are disguised as hikes in water, electricity and sanitation fees. Taxes, fees or any other forms of increased financial burden on San Fernando Valley residents need to be halted at all costs."[6]
