California is broken. The budget is in crisis, our education system ranks among the lowest in the country, our crime rates are among the highest in the nation, and jobs are quickly disappearing from our state. The Bay Area has been dominated by politicians from one political party for the past few decades. Are you happy with the California that they have left us with?
There are connotations associated with being a conservative in the Bay Area. But I believe that there are also many misconceptions about what it means to be a conservative. At the end of the day, there are basic notions of common sense and personal responsibility that members of all political parties can agree on.
As a political outsider, I look at things differently than the way most established politicians look at things. I am not burdened by allegiances to special interest groups, and I am free to think through issues logically from beginning to end. I believe in simplicity, and I believe in the United States Constitution.
There is far too much hypocrisy in society today. Many people say one thing and then do another when they think others aren't looking. I believe there are definitive rights and wrongs in society, and I make a conscious effort to always do what I think is right. I hold myself to a high standard, and I don't ask anything of others that I am not willing to do myself.
A strong leader can bring about a complete change in the way government operates and in how individuals interact with and are involved with government. I believe that I am that kind of strong leader that the Bay Area and California needs representing them in Sacramento. That is why I'm running for California State Assembly in District 20. Together, we can make a difference.
Candidate, California State Assembly
