Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am Gene Stump, and I want to become a member of the California City, California, City Council.  I moved to my California City home in September 2010.  After six years of living in here, and observing our elected officials, I believe I can make our good city council a great city council.  With my vast work experience, educational background, and training, I believe I can apply more efficient methods in governing our city.  I also believe in transparency, ensuring nothing is kept from the people of this city.  I have listed my phone number: (760) 338-5463, and email address: to make myself available to our citizens.  Additionally, my website: will post questions from voters along with my answers to those questions.
