I am a second generation California businessman. I believe that California needs to be led not litigated. The way to turn the fiscal condition of California around is to bring business back. California's financial problems are not going to be solved by higher taxes. It will be through the creation of a friendly business environment that will keep businesses from leaving the state. I am totally committed to making California work. I am raising my family and growing my business here. California has both a wonderful climate and a broad cultural base, which makes it one of the best places on earth to live and work.
