Why I am Running for California State Assembly
Representing the 44 District.

I don’t want to leave California. As a fourth generation resident of Thousand Oaks, this is my state, my city and my community. My business represents two generations of my family’s blood, sweat and tears and I am not about to let out of touch Sacramento politicians drive us away. , “I love my country, I love this state, I love Ventura County. I have observed that business owners are closing their doors and leaving the County and State, crime is increasing in neighborhoods, schools are closing down due to lack of funds and health care costs are sky high. The imbalance of this one party system has pushed Sacramento farther and farther from the realities of living in California. The challenges of raising a family, running a business and making a living has become more difficult as our state’s governance has turned away from supporting its’ constituents.  

I have seen lots of changes and don’t like where we’re heading. I can no longer sit back and watch the Government and its’ bureaucracy grow while our rights are diminished. I believe that California is one of the best states in the nation but many of us are struggling and lack access to basic needs.  These and more are enough reason for me to take a stand and be the catalysts of change in our society. I want to be the voice of sanity in these insane situations”

I’m ready to fight back, and I hope you’ll join me.

My mother always said, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” Together we can stand for the opportunity, prosperity and quality of life that California used to represent.

Support Small Business

Each year California passes many laws that do not take into consideration the small business owner and the unintended consequences of these laws. California has one of the highest costs of doing business in the country. This affects all things needed to run a business, including utility costs, gas prices, property costs, taxes and health insurance premiums in a negative way. Small businesses are the backbone of economic growth and increased employment. If California’s economy is to grow, we must make job creation a top issue and help lower the cost of doing business in California.

  1. Limit regulation of small businesses.
  2. Address job creation.
  3. Look at the quality of education and finding quality workers.
  4. Lower the costs of doing business including but not limited to, lower taxes, lower healthcare costs and lowering general expenses in running a small business.

Support of Proposition 13

There is a concern that if the Democrats gain a two-thirds majority (Super Majority) of the Legislature that Proposition 13’s opponents will begin the repeal process and try to eliminate Proposition 13, potentially increasing all taxes.

Proposition 13 is generally associated with property tax limits, it also protects all arbitrary tax increases at the state and local level by requiring a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to increase state taxes. Additionally, renters benefit because Proposition 13 makes property taxes predictable and stable, which reduces upward pressure on rent increases.

If Proposition 13 is repealed, tax payers (this is all of us) are in unprecedented danger of increased taxes. The California Legislature in recent years has been in over spending mode and is in fiscal imbalance; their solution, increase taxes. Should Proposition 13 be repealed, this could be the first domino to fall in a string of many tax increases to follow.

I want to protect all property owners, residential and commercial and will work to keep Proposition 13 in full force. Proposition 13 is a benefit to ALL, present and future California property owners.

Keep the Democrats from achieving a super majority in the Legislature

The intention of the supermajority requirement is to have a system whereby taxes cannot be raised too easily, or too often. The two-thirds vote protection is particularly critical when it comes to property taxes. Since local taxes are approved by local voters, it’s obviously unfair if a tax can be passed by people who don’t have to pay that tax. Yet that intense unfairness is becoming possible as a pro tax coalition makes inroads into the two-thirds vote protection.

A two-thirds majority would not only hand Democrats strong control of the executive and legislative branches, but give them far more power, including the ability to override vetoes by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, bypass legislative rules and deadlines and put constitutional reforms before voters.
