Jonathan Miller
Democratic Party
San Mateo, CA

I am founder and President of a Silicon Valley computer company. I started my company at 26 and have grown it into a profitable and innovative leader with global sales. My company creates jobs when others are laying off. I understand that small businesses and exports are the keys to California's economic success, and I will ensure that California remains a desirable place for business. The son of immigrants, I understand the hope that America means to people around the world who dream of a better life. I welcome the hard-working newcomers who choose to join us and contribute in our journey. My parents sent me to MIT because they knew the most valuable gift they could give me was a good education. I believe an educated mind can accomplish anything. Education is my number one priority for California, because it will give our young citizens the tools they need to build a better future for us all. I believe what happens in California affects all America and the world. We are the torch bearers for innovation and social progress, and we must lead the way with pride, honor, and vision. Under my watch California will develop long-term plans to maintain our leadership in technology, agriculture, renewable energy, urban planning, social progress, environmental protection, and quality of life., (510) 456-7890.
