Vip Bhola
Republican Party

I am a husband, a father of two children, a trial attorney, and believe in Judeo-Christian principles. I am from an immigrant family, and worked my way through college and law school. I presently own my own business (law practice) and represent numerous business owners and people in the community and I understand their problems. Moreover, as an attorney, I am experienced in marshaling the top experts in their fields to resolve complicated and complex issues, both financial and otherwise. My wife and I are active volunteers in several non-profit organizations that strengthen youth, families, marriages, and teach financial responsibility. The basis for making my determinations will be: (1) what is best for California citizens and businesses; and (2) what is fiscally sound.
