The Golden State is in an economic tailspin. Hundreds of thousands of jobs have been lost, and we're swimming in debt. The economic prosperity of a few years ago is gone—wrecked by the national recession, worsened by special interest politicians who don't know a thing about creating jobs or balancing budgets. I'm an innovator and an entrepreneur. I've helped create thousands of jobs, helped balance multi-million dollar private sector budgets, and poured nearly a billion dollars back into our economy. I'm the only candidate with the job creating experience to get the economy moving, create good paying jobs, give our children a world class education, guard against offshore drilling and make health care universally affordable. Restoring the California Dream means creating jobs. Here's how I'll do it: Spur investment in world class technology and computer based curriculum in our schools. "Green technology" to reduce energy consumption and create a new industry for California. Biotechnology investment to cure disease and create high paying jobs. I call it the Action Plan to Restore the California Dream. For details visit: www.GruenerforGovernor.com. I'm a product of the California Dream. I attended public schools and earned degrees from UC San Diego and UC Berkeley. Thanks to public investment in the Internet, I created jobs and started successful companies like Ask Jeeves. Today the California Dream is in danger. I'm running for Governor because together we can get our economy moving and Restore the California Dream for all.
