Position Papers
The crippling effect of over regulation of businesses and the crumbling of our home values, along with increasing government has destroyed our economy. We need to bring reduced regulations and tax reductions to stimulate businesses. We need recovery to homeowners who have lost home value, but are still paying the same mortgages. We need to bring down the size of government and lessen the pork barreling that is benefiting the friends of those in control of Washington.
The number one way I can help bring more jobs back to the valley is to increase water to Westside farmers. I will be a voice in Washington that will fight with Devin Nunes to establish a permanent solution to our water needs. The current water bond measure does not give priority to the central valley and 70% goes to increasing bureaucracy.
We need to stop the class warfare as a means to seek to raise taxes on those who work hard to achieve the American dream.
