Proponent's Recall Argument / Governor's Recall Argument

Douglas Anderson
Republican Party

As Governor, I will address the majority of California's issues and opportunities in the next three years by focusing on eliminating the budget deficit by restraints on spending, reducing benefits to illegal immigrants and controlling the ever increasing cost of Worker's Compensation due to administrative waste and fraud. Furthermore, I will set the educational curriculum standards and closely monitor local control, eliminating the current "teach to test" method required for advancement. As a husband, father, grandfather, businessman and a resident of California for the past 47 years, I have seen California go from one of the most progressive states in the nation to one of the least desirable business environments. High wage employers are leaving California and are being replaced by minimum wage employers which is lowering our tax base. Our Educational system has plummeted to 47th in the nation. My goal as Governor is to reinstate California as a national leader in Business, Education and restore personal freedoms.
