I love California. Born and raised in the best State in the union, California is and always will be my home. My life has been surrounded by a loving family and many supportive friends. I am married with two children and live in Orange County. During my career I have managed profitable business enterprise with one eye on the bottom line and the other looking toward the future. Managing a budget, expanding payroll, seeking better employee health benefits and increasing sales are the keys to a successful business. As the Chief Operations Officer of a successful California service company in business over 20 years, I have had the unique opportunity to respond to the changing needs of employees and business dynamics in today's economy. Increasing opportunity for my employees has always been and remains the hallmark of my career. There have been no other happier moments than watching an employee learn new skills, buy a car or finance a new home. These are the rights that I feel should be available to each and every Californian. As your Governor I will apply these experiences to increase corporate investment in the State thereby reducing unemployment while protecting our schools, air and water. I seek to lower taxes by increasing the number of workers, not by increasing fees or cutting needy programs. Health care for the elderly and poor families is a necessity, not a privilege. With your vote, together we can transform California into the state of opportunity.
