California Democrats need a financially conservative governor who will control spending and promote a business friendly environment in our state without sacrificing vital programs such as education, transportation and health care. As a medical doctor I understand the problems with our state's health care system and can provide workable solutions. My background also includes a degree in Chemical Engineering along with work and business experience in the oil and gas industry. This gives me a firm comprehension of energy policy from production and distribution to consumption and conservation. A small business owner myself, I understand and have experienced first hand the problems faced by business owners including skyrocketing health insurance and workers compensation costs. We need a complete overhaul of the state's workers compensation program ASAP. As a Democrat, I am proud to represent the socially and environmentally progressive platform of our party and will work tirelessly to improve the quality of life and working conditions of all Californians. My supporters include people of all races, cultures, sex, religions and economic backgrounds. Go California! Diversity is our strength! Pledging not to run or campaign for re-election, I'll devote my full attention to the duties of Governor with no distractions or conflicts of interest. Vote intelligently! Don't waste your vote on celebrities or publicity seekers. I am a serious and qualified candidate for the office of Governor. With your support we can bring financial responsibility back to our state's government. Please vote for "Dr. Mac," Frank Macaluso, M.D.
