My Top 3 Priorities

  • Support the belief that employees and employers should have the right to determine wages and working conditions through either individual or collective bargaining, as they choose, within the boundaries of the law.
  • Ensure a stronger commitment to educating California's current and future workforce.
  • Support legislators and legislation that embraces fair play for employer and employees. As it is essential to the preservation of our free enterprise system.
