Position Papers
California's public education system was once the envy of our nation, but now our students rank near last in fundamentals like reading and arithmetic. As a product of California's public education system, and the son of a former California Teacher of the Year, I will not turn my back on public education, but realize it is in need of drastic reform.
"Mike Fitzgerald on crime - firm but fair.", Joseph Russoniello, former US Attorney for Northern California.
Welfare Reform
Welfare reform and its challenge of moving welfare recipients to work will be a top priority of California's legislature. We need to use both the private and public sectors to build a competitive, market-based approach to moving welfare recipients from dependence on government hand-outs to economic self-sufficiency.
