Steve Collett's Ballot Statement

By Steve Collett

Candidate for United States Representative; District 33

This information is provided by the candidate
Included with June 5 ballot information
I am socially liberal, fiscally conservative and green.

Our economy is suffocating from decades of massive deficit spending on programs which do more harm than good. We need to stop wasting tax dollars on foreign military intervention, Wall Street bailouts and failed programs like the War on Drugs. In this era of limitations, there are policy changes where we can be safer and more prosperous by spending less.

Regarding social security, a promise is a promise. We need to live up to those promises and protect against the most important threat to people on fixed incomes by ending massive deficit spending which erodes the value of social security and pension income.

I believe in the rights of individuals to choose who they can marry and what they can do with their own body. I support foreign policy based on trade, not war. I support identifying and compensating great teachers.

Our congressional district includes the most vibrant people and most beautiful property in the world. I support policies which maximize our air quality, water quality, and environment to make it the best place anywhere to live and work.

I understand people. I understand business. I understand taxation. I am a Certified Public Accountant with 35 years experience learning who makes money and how they do it. I am a business owner. I have a Masters in Business Taxation from USC and I am a member of UCLA's Masters in Public Policy Class of 2013.
