I'm a former Police Officer who now works as a Firefighter Paramedic and an Emergency Department Nurse. I have a degree in Economics and I speak Spanish and French. I've spent my adult life talking, negotiating, and solving problems with people. Being Governor is not about knowing everything, it's about doing your homework, coming prepared, surrounding yourself with the best people and doing what's right. I'm not beholden to any special interest groups so my decisions will be based on facts and the merits of an argument, not the payback demands of a lobbyist. My focus is on the next generation, not the next election. I support: Abortion rights, Campaign finance reform, Civil rights, Same sex marriage, Domestic partnership rights, Early childcare, Safe, quality schools, Help for single parents, A strong environmental policy with no additional off shore oil drilling and reduced auto emissions, Consumer protection and privacy laws, Reforming State health care agencies, Addressing the nursing shortage, Improving mental health care, Public-Private partnerships to create affordable health insurance, Reforming Prop 13's Commercial Property taxation rules, Being more business friendly, Revamping Workmans Compensation, Reducing job flight out of state, Holding down costs while we repair the State budget.
