Protect Taxpayers and Root Out Government Waste
When I say I will work to protect taxpayers, that isn’t just lip service. When I was elected to the Beaumont City Council, I took action to reform our local Mello-Roos. I saved taxpayers money and protected them from property tax increases without sacrificing any services. California is already one of the highest taxed state’s in the nation, but that isn’t enough for the politicians in Sacramento. After passing one of the largest tax increases in history (the 2017 gas tax), Governor Gavin Newsom raided those funds to pay for pet projects without accountability. The Governor and the Sacramento legislature will likely ask for future increases in taxes later to replace funds that are misused. I will protect Prop. 13 and fight to reform the tax code and reduce the waste in our government. California must live within its means and stop treating taxpayers like an ATM machine.
Supporting Public Safety – Increase Penalties for Violent Criminals
Sacramento continues to take a hostile approach to our law enforcement. They promote legislation that puts our local communities at risk, all while making it more difficult for individuals to protect themselves and their property. They make it harder to buy firearms and ammunition for protection, but make it easier for criminals to get out of jail. I will support efforts to reform the sentencing rules to stiffen penalties on violent offenders and work to keep those guilty of crimes behind bars. This will allow our law enforcement to work in the community, proactively policing instead of re-arresting those who should have never been released.
Protecting the Inland Empire’s Values
Here in the Inland Empire, we have a deep sense of community and family. I will protect these values when I am your State Senator. I will work hard to fight for our values in Sacramento and protect the family values that the Inland Empire has come to know.
Supporting Economic Growth to Support New Job Creation
Unfortunately, many of the laws mandated from Sacramento stifle our local economy in the form of high tax rates and high energy costs. California is not a business-friendly state. Small business creates 60-70% of all new jobs in our area, so we need a healthy business environment that includes CEQA reforms to allow our local economy to grow and support our way of life. As a councilman, I was able to create thousands of new jobs and secure new businesses for our community. I will use that experience to create more local jobs throughout the Inland Empire.
Solve the Homelessness Crisis
In order to solve the homeless problems we have to make sure we’re dealing with the actual problems creating the explosion in homeless numbers around the State. If the answer was as simple as providing more funding to homeless services, there wouldn’t be a single homeless person in San Francisco. However, their homeless rate is higher than the national average.
We need programs that address each homeless person’s needs separately. We have to curb the abuse of illegal narcotics in our community, and get those addicted to them help immediately. We have to get those with mental illness real help and we have to increase the supply of housing by getting government out of the way of building new and affordable homes. Finally, we must provide job training programs that actually work to get individuals back into the workforce.
