Jobs and the Economy

By Josh Becker

Candidate for Member of the State Assembly; District 21; Democratic Party

This information is provided by the candidate
It's time to get California back to work.

As a Green Energy Entrepreneur and Stanford MBA, Josh has created thousands of jobs in and around the bay area by identifying and supporting innovative and socially responsible businesses with progressive labor policies. He has first hand experience in growing the economy and will bring that experience to Sacramento.

While California in general and the Silicon Valley in particular, have been on the cutting edge of green technology, our State has not done enough to ensure that the ideas of today produce the jobs of tomorrow. As an Assemblymember Josh will ensure the government is utilized to create, not cut, well paying jobs in California.

In Sacramento, Josh will demand greater performance from existing tax credits to ensure that they are used to create new local jobs and foster innovation. Additionally, he will focus on building the green economy by rewarding colleges and universities that offer new curriculum and job training to support emerging industries like solar power. Finally Josh will ensure Sacramento identifies or creates "shovel ready" projects right here in California to employ workers trained in the green economy, with a goal of producing100,000 new, well paying jobs in California.
