Campaign themes


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

  • Helping Businesses Grow and Create Jobs
Excerpt: "With high unemployment in the Inland Empire, Pete knows that putting people back to work is job one. As Redlands Mayor, Pete created an economic development action plan for the city to improve the local business climate."
  • Standing Up for Working Families
Excerpt: "As Redlands Mayor, Pete made the tough choices to balance the city’s budget and create a reserve fund. He’ll bring the same fiscal common sense to Congress. Pete will work to get the federal budget under control, by cutting wasteful spending and identifying programs that are not effective. "
  • Improving Our Schools
Excerpt: "As a parent, Pete shares the concern of many in San Bernardino County about the affect of budget cuts to our schools and public colleges. He is committed to promoting federal investments that can help reduce class sizes and provide our schools with the tools they need to educate our children."
  • Restoring Our Roads, Highways and Infrastructure
Excerpt: "Pete believes that investments to improve our roads, highways and infrastructure are vital to helping local businesses and creating jobs. That’s why he led efforts to invest billions in federal dollars locally over the next 30 years to make San Bernardino County a better place to live, work and do business."
  • Protecting Medicare and Social Security
Excerpt: "Medicare is at risk. Some in Congress are pushing to replace it with a voucher program that will force seniors to pay $6,000.00 more in out-of-pocket medical expenses each year. Pete will fight to protect Medicare in Congress, opposing program cuts."
