Member; California State Assembly; District 12

This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate


Occupation: Small Business Owner

Education and Qualifications: By owning successful businesses and raising four children, I understand budgets. Teaching Junior Achievement in schools, I encourage business vocations in children. I coach youth athletics and support charitable organizations. My campaign to reduce taxes and regulations is endorsed by San Francisco's Small Business Advocates.

Our family represents our diverse community. My wife works in the Foreign Service. We speak 6 languages and are optimistic about human potential and work. We encourage choice for anything peaceful and responsible. We believe people learn from mistakes and punishment shouldn't exceed crimes. We know property rights encourage affordable housing, home ownership and healthy environments. As libertarians, we understand everyone benefits from economic and personal freedom, responsibility and very limited government.

I oppose failed big-party politics, war and the loss of privacy and Liberty. I oppose quotas restraining our best and brightest. I oppose business welfare and disarming victims of violence and crime. I oppose politics based on sexual-orientation, gender and race.

I also oppose government-funded non-profits and challenge government's monopoly on social services. To maintain power over public health, City Hall denied private charities permits to provide free clinics and doctors. We pay twice as much for City services as other communities. Is this what we want for California?

Given establishment power, it may seem a new voice cannot be heard. However, every vote for me affirms your desire for a better, freer California. Your vote is wasted only if voting for more of the same. Vote Michael Denny. Visit

/s/ Michael F. Denny
