Position Papers
American Jobs 101 Plan
The number one issue facing America today is the economy. As a Congressman, I must do everything I can in my power to help turn America's economy around. However, I also realize that it is unlikely that any one single Congressman is going to be able to change the economic condition of America. So, in addition to always voting the right way in Congress, I have created my innovative and exclusive "American Jobs 101" plan.
Congressional Clarity Statement
It is impossible to predict the specific issues that will arise during my term as a representative in the United States Congress. However, I understand that my constituents want to have confidence in the decisions that I will make when casting my vote as their Congressional representative for District 16 in California.
Constituents Communication Plan
Constituents Communication Plan A major problem with our government system today is that constituents have no idea what their representatives are doing. There is a barrier between Congressmen and the people they represent, which unfortunately leads to a sense of elitism and virtually eliminates the accountability that representatives should have with their constituents.
