Candidate Statement for Jeff Mock

By Jeffrey L. "Jeff" Mock

Candidate for Recall of Gray Davis; State of California

This information is provided by the candidate
All the things important to California # good schools and housing, modern efficient transportation, safe neighborhoods, environmental respect # depend on prosperity for people and companies who pay the taxes to sustain our infrastructure. That prosperity depends on a healthy economy that provides good-paying jobs to hard-working and industrious Californians. Nothing is more important to that healthy economy than a thriving manufacturing sector, companies offering the kind of jobs that enable working people to pay taxes, afford housing and provide for their families.

As Governor, I will make protecting that economic infrastructure our number-one priority. I will assist California manufacturers who find their products squeezed out of the domestic marketplace by goods produced in countries that don't pay our wage rates and don't make costly environmental protection and worker safety a priority.

I will initiate a major overhaul of workers compensation that returns it to the no-fault insurance system it was designed to be, with competitive policy rates and where injured workers are fairly and promptly compensated and cared for.

The root of our current budget crisis is our state's dysfunctional energy policy. I will initiate reforms that encourage distributed generation utilizing renewable and ultra-clean technologies like solar, wind, geothermal, and fuel cells to reduce our massive dependence on fossil fuels.

Finally, I will strive to infuse between the state's regulatory bureaucracy and the manufacturing companies that are the bedrock of our state's prosperity, an attitude of cooperation and partnership to promote progress on worker safety and environmental protection.
