It has been an honor and privilege being able to fight for the people of Riverside County over the past 26 years. I became active in politics because I was tired of graffiti overtaking my city where I was raising my family and running my pharmacy. When I saw nothing was being done to fix the problem, I decided to become active; and I’m proud to say that Temecula still has some of the toughest anti-graffiti ordinances in the state.
As a County Supervisor, I was tenacious in my mission to end the homelessness crisis among our community of veterans, and I’m proud to say that the VALOR program today is still in place. Over the past four years, I’ve had the highest honor by serving Riverside County in the State Senate.
In that time, I’ve helped write legislation to address the housing crisis that has put homeownership out of the reach of far too many people by reforming the rules and regulations that add thousands of dollars to the price of new homes.
Since 2016, the California Legislature and our Governor have gone out of their way to criticize everything the federal government has done. I’ve led the fight against California becoming a “sanctuary state” for convicted felons in this country illegally.
In a state with nearly 40 million people and record revenues coming in, I’ve fought to make sure our hardworking families are not overtaxed and overregulated. That’s why the National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed me as their choice for State Senate and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has consistently ranked me as a solid vote for taxpayers.
And the Riverside Sheriffs’ Association, the Correctional Peace Officers’ Association and law enforcement officials and groups across the state are supporting me for Senate because they know they can count on me to stand up for crime victims. As a Member of the Senate Public Safety Committee, I’ve led the fight to keep violent criminals behind bars and keep predators off our streets.
The voters have a real choice on November 6th.
I am opposed to the Governor’s Bullet Train to nowhere that is going to cost us nearly $90 Billion.
I support efforts to make housing more affordable in our state through common-sense regulation reforms.
I support policies that make sure criminals in our country illegally are not given sanctuary status here in California.
On November 6th, I would be honored to be given an opportunity to continue my work on behalf of taxpayers, crime victims and small businesses across the state.
As we work together to become a better state where we can live, work and raise our families in safe neighborhoods with good schools; I look forward to an opportunity to continue representing the communities I love and am proud to call home.
