Work that has to be done for the 34th Assembly District
The State of California is the Most Over-Taxed, Business Unfriendly State in the entire Nation, I can no longer tolerate the Energy Price Gouging and the Raids on the Wallets of our Hard Working families here in Tulare County and the 34th AD.I want to keep the Talent, Businesses and Jobs here in Tulare County and the entire 34th District and work to bring new job creation by putting Our District back to work, building and creating High Paying jobs for our Future, for our Families and for our Businesses, through Education,Vocational Ed programs and Creating a High Technology Hub right here in the 34th District. I will work to "Lower the cost of Housing." and work to help protect our Homeowners and our Housing Industry instead of bailing out the Mortgage Bankers in New York City! My Proposal for a new Energy and Water Policy will drive economic growth and much needed job creation for California and the 34th District. I will fight The Self-Serving Fat Cats of the Sacramento Bureaucracy, and Work to eliminate the hamstrings that bind solid business growth in California. We need to ensure that Our Valley has a reliable steady supply of Irrigation water for All our Valley Farmers. We need to ensure we have reliable sources of clean drinking water for our Families and our Children. Better Transportation by supporting upgrades to Highway 99 and especially the High-Speed-Rail to Tulare County, and the rest of the 34th District. Invest in cost effective and reliable transportation infrastructure, for Trucking and Train shipment for moving our goods more efficiently to markets here and outside of California. Protect our Economy and Future by Securing our Energy Resources; Bring in New companies and new ideas for an exciting industry, that will invest in Green Technology, reliable and renewable sources of Energy, Biodiesel manufacturing, Solar and Ethanol generation facilities and Wind Power, Let's work together to make California an Energy Exporter instead of an energy importer. An Alternative Approach, I want to bring High-Technology jobs to Tulare County and the 34th District, utilizing vocational training and college graduates from our own region. Too many of our Tulare County college graduates leave the area in order to find jobs out of State and out of Tulare County. We need to keep the best and the brightest Right Here rather than losing them, as they leave to find work out of the area. We need to make our future a bright one, create new jobs and secure our family's future. Working together, we can bring change to Sacramento and create a prosperous rich future for our families and all the people of Tulare County and the 34th District. We need to provide better funding for Law Enforcement, we have a tremendous Gang problem in the 34th District and we have to put a stop to the danger that it poses to our families and to our communities. Better Gang Prevention Education by assisting at-risk youth with additional resources,in our schools and County and City level programs. Let's make sure we give Our Children the Education that they deserve. We need to be able to provide funding to Senior Citizens at the City and County levels, as well as to the Disabled. We need to ensure that we take care and provide needed services to all the residents of This District.
