Hello California! I want to be your next Governor. Weary of partisan bickering that deadlocks our State, I am running as a nonpartisan Independent. Being Independent, I will arrive in Sacramento untainted, owing no political favors and able to work with all parties. Considering our pressing budget crises, my platform is long-term fiscal responsibility. To achieve financial stability, my decisions may not be popular, but they will be prudent. As a token of my commitment to resolve our financial crisis, I will forfeit the Governor's salary. As a political moderate, I support protecting consumer interests; consumer privacy; a woman's right to choose; environmental safeguards; free markets that foster efficient uses of capital, economic growth and job creation; school choice; some form of weapons regulation; and equality for all regardless of creed, ethnicity, gender, race, or sexual orientation. However, without an adequate budget, all of these are harder to achieve. A lifelong California resident, I hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in Civil Engineering from UC Berkeley, and an MBA from UCLA. I am a licensed Professional Engineer, Real Estate Agent, hold the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, and was an Eagle Scout. I have worked in the fields of engineering, construction and finance. Tell your friends, spread the word, send your vote my way. There are no throw away votes this election. I may be unknown now, but with your help I can win in October. Bob McClain for Governor. www.bobmcclain.com
