Our district needs more high-paying jobs, infrastructure improvements, and fewer taxes. The way we get there is by investing in education/training, better freeways/roads, and stop penalizing taxpayers. I will introduce legislation investing in 21st century education, investing in roads/infrastructure, and reducing regressive taxes.
The plan I helped develop removes the homeless from our neighborhoods, parks, riverbeds, rail road tracks, flood channels, and sidewalks. I will work make sure county funds earmarked for homeless programs be released to homeless program providers rather than setting in the bank.
I am the Democrat "Tax Fighter" working against over a dozen tax/fee increases over the past 20 years. I support legislation to set California's gas tax to the national average saving the average driver hundreds of dollars each year. I have a record of fighting new taxes/fees on residential property, commercial property, utilities, television programming, telephones, cell phones, sewer, trash, and sales taxes. I oppose taxes that hurt working families, the poor, and seniors on fixed incomes.
As a Proposition 13 supporter and long-time Taxpayer's Association Member, I will draft legislation to bring the homeowners property tax exemption up to date increasing it from $7,000 to $70,000 per year. Prop. 13 for both residential property and commercial property must be protected.
California freeways are jammed and we are running low on water, electricity, and natural gas is below normal levels. We need to avoid future shortages. Building more high-density housing in high-density areas is not what we need. We need more roads and freeways and without tax increases.
21st century education includes collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving. I support teaching our children these 21st century skills as we compete to keep jobs and bring new jobs to our area.
