In a nutshell

If you want to know what this campaign is all about, you've come to the right place. Below is a list of key issues for this campaign.

Skin Color Act 5

I am strongly opposed to SCA 5, which I believe has been correctly dubbed "Skin Color Act 5". It is clear that the goal of this law is to cap Asian enrollment at California's universities by actively discriminating against students on the basis of race. Attacks on California's Asian minority, which is only 15% of the population, should not be tolerated. Racial discrimination is always wrong, and I believe the people of California will stand with us.

The economy

I believe in lower taxes, limited government, and a strong private sector. The problem with raising tax rates is that it creates a drag on the private sector and hinders economic growth. Democrat President John F. Kennedy got it right when he said, "It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low. And the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now." (read more)

Energy policy

A vibrant economy needs a good energy policy to support it. One of the cleanest sources of energy available to us in California is natural gas. We already use natural gas to generate our electricity, and to heat our homes and our hot water. We need to keep developing the abundant resources of natural gas we have right here in California.

School choice

I am a strong supporter of school choice. I believe parents should decide which school is right for their kids. Also, the best way to lift children out of poverty is to give them a good education. School choice programs have rescued many kids from schools that were failing them, and have given them a chance to succeed.

Parental notification

I believe in parental notification for teen girls. If abortion is a medical decision, then the doctor needs to let the parents know. While abortion is a difficult issue, it is important that we develop mainstream policies that can attract broad support and reduce the number of abortions. This one is common sense and should have been implemented already.
