Thank candidate for sharing their information on Voter’s Edge.
  • Stop the early release of criminals: Assembly bill 109 and Prop. 47 have released criminals early. I will oppose these efforts, vote no on the upcoming Prop. 57 and strive to keep our neighborhoods safe.
  • Save Prop. 13: I pledge to support Prop. 13. I will vote against unnecessary tax increases and push for fiscal accountability.
  • Back to the basics for Students: Students should graduate knowing math, science and must be able to read and write English. I support strong academic standards and more local control for our local schools.
