I am running for Governor because I do not want an ultra-conservative person to be elected. The recall ballot has two parts. I am not voting to recall the Governor. I urge you to vote for me regardless of your political party affiliation. I am a native Californian. I am 42 years old. I have a wife, Connie age 34, sons: Christopher age 7, Alexander age 6 months and Brett age 15 (stepson). I have been a registered Democrat since age 19. I graduated at age 22 from San Francisco State University with a bachelor's degree in Political Science. I graduated from San Francisco Law School in 1991. I was admitted to practice law in 1991. I have never run for any government office nor accepted any donations from any special interest groups. I consider myself a moderate Democrat. I have views on issues which you need to know. Taxes—I will not sign legislation to increase taxes. This includes an increase in vehicle registration fees. Education—I support the constitutional spending guidelines as set forth in Proposition 98. Personal—I am Pro-Choice, Woman's Right to Choose, for Gay Rights. I am Against Handguns except for law enforcement purposes. I am Pro Death Penalty. Once elected, I will work with everyone in our State Legislature. In order to properly govern, I will respect the opinion of others. I will represent all Californians not just Democrats.
