I am a Candidate From the People For the People. Twenty-two years ago you welcomed my family with open arms and allowed us to fulfill the American Dream. I am now ready to commit to you as a servant of the people. I have a strong affection and deep respect for the diversity, creativity, and ambition of the citizens of this state. I believe we have the capability to overcome our recent crises and claim our stake as a model for economic success and effective, progressive policy. My aim is to create an environment where we can thrive again by eliminating the barriers to our productivity. I will rescind Governor's harmful policies such as the 300% car tax, streamline taxes, place priority on education, stop university tuition increases, and tackle the traffic that is choking our cities. I will use my experience as a member of the City of San Diego Small Business Advisory Board and connection to a vast network of high-tech entrepreneurs across the state to enable a more business-friendly environment and create jobs while ensuring corporate responsibility. I will give a voice to those living without health care and protect citizens against crime. I am an entrepreneur and a scholar with experience advising at the Governor level. I represent the common people and will bring unity across party lines. I will revitalize government with a thoughtful, rational approach to planning and decision making that will allow this state to rise and shine strong as a truly Golden State.
