The people of California need to get more involved in setting the course of California! I am a husband and a father of two children, not a career politician. I will work for the people of California not special interest groups. I can make a difference! I grew up in California, served in the Navy for 10 years, graduated from UCLA summa cum laude with a degree in electrical engineering. The last several years I have been very concerned with California policies and economics. I currently work as a Satellite Payload Project Manager. Drawing on my experience in project management, quality assurance, and working in a multicultural environment, I intend to deal with the budget deficit by cutting government waste and growth, repealing laws and cutting red tape that are driving businesses and jobs out of California. Illegal immigration and insurance fraud also have a huge impact on our economy. The workers compensation program needs reform to reduce fraudulent claims which are increasing costs and driving businesses out of business. Tort reform will limit damages so doctors can afford insurance and reduce health care costs. California schools need to provide quality education. Cutting the bureaucracy by getting funding directly to the schools, then the administrations must justify their spending and budget to the schools. Schools and emergency services should have priority in funding; not the first programs cut. I want all of our children to grow up proud to be Californians!
