Top Priorities if Elected
  • PUBLIC SAFETY: THE FIRST DUTY OF GOVERNMENT -- If government does nothing else, it should at least protect us from crime. As Attorney General, working with local law enforcement, Dan Lungren has helped lead California to its lowest level of crime in 30 years. As Governor, he'll continue fighting for tough laws, judges and effective prevention until every Californian lives in a safe community.
  • EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION -- As Governor, Dan Lungren will bring to the state's faltering public education system the same focus he brought to fighting crime. He will fight for top-to-bottom reform with authority returned to local educators, teachers and parents. Statewide performance standards and traditional, proven curriculum and teaching methods must be restored in our public schools K through 12. Our community colleges, which provide the best dollar-for-dollar educational product in America, must be given the ability to provide a skilled, educated workforce. In short, Dan Lungren will not rest until every parent in California can once again be assured that his or her child's education comes first.
  • GROWING BUSINESS,GOOD JOBS -- California is booming again. As Governor, Dan Lungren's pro-business, pro-growth agenda will mean restraining government's fiscal appetite, cutting back choking regulations on business and passing laws that enable the technological industries of the economy of the future to succeed.

Position Papers
Dan Lungren's Benchmark Record on Public Safety
Public safety - Government's first priority -- Attorney General Dan Lungren advocates that, "It's time for the government at all levels to recognize that its first priority has to be the protection of its citizens. If we fail our people here, we fail them everywhere."
Dan Lungren's Education Reform Agenda
Bringing accountability to our schools is the single most important reform we can undertake. Students must be expected to meet standards, teachers must be competent, and administrators must spend their resources wisely. The state must be held accountable as well, and must give our schools and our students the tools they need to succeed.
Dan Lungren -- The Importance of California's Growth Industries
Today, California's economy is thriving. The transition from recession to boom was created, in great part, by the expansion of California's high-tech and bio-tech industries. Despite the growing importance that high-technology companies play in our economy, too often government continues to stand in the way.
