STATEMENT OF CANDIDATE FOR CALIFORNIA STATE SENATE, 40TH DISTRICT

BEN HUESO

Occupation: California State Senator

Education and Qualifications:

My biggest reward as your State Senator has been working alongside you to achieve the American Dream.

As a father of four, it’s important for California to provide quality and affordable education, good jobs, a healthy environment and communities of which we can be proud.

In the legislature, I’ve been a reformer. For the last four years, California has invested in education significantly. Our economy has grown steadily and outperformed the nation.

As the Chair of Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee, I’m proud of our leadership in creating one of the strongest and most efficient clean energy standards in the world.

As Coastal Commissioner and member of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee, I fought tirelessly for water quality in our oceans, beaches and rivers across the state, particularly for San Diego and Imperial Counties.

There’s still a lot to be done. We need to prioritize safe communities, strengthen small businesses, ensure people of all ages, especially our seniors and veterans, have the health care services they need.

I would be deeply honored to have your support. Families, like yours, who have supported me in the past are the foundation of strong communities and the basis for strong leadership.

Alongside you, I can continue fighting for a great California.

I appreciate your consideration in this election. Thank you.

s/Ben Hueso 

DECLARACIÓN DE CANDIDATO PARA EL SENADO DEL ESTADO DE CALIFORNIA, DISTRITO 40

BEN HUESO

Ocupación: Senador del Estado de California

Educación y Calificaciones:

Mi mayor compensación como su senador estatal ha sido trabajar junto con ustedes para realizar el sueño americano.

Como padre de cuatro niños, yo creo que es importante que California proporcione una educación asequible y de buena calidad, buenos empleos, un medio ambiente saludable y comunidades de las cuales podremos estar orgullosos.

En la legislatura, he sido un reformador. Por los últimos cuatro años, California ha invertido considerablemente en la educación. Nuestra economía ha crecido constantemente y su desempeño ha superado el de la nación.

Como director del Comité de Energía, Servicios Públicos y Comunicaciones del Senado, estoy orgulloso de que nuestra liderazgo ha creado una de las normas de energía limpia más eficientes en todo el mundo.

Como comisionado costero y miembro del Comité de Recursos Naturales e Hidráulicos del Senado, yo luché incansablemente por una buena calidad de agua en nuestros mares, playas y ríos en todo el estado, particularmente en el Condado de San Diego y de Imperial.

Todavía queda mucho por hacer. Tenemos que dar prioridad a la seguridad de las comunidades, fortalecer las pequeñas empresas, garantizar que personas de todas las edades, especialmente nuestros ancianos y veteranos, tengan los servicios de cuidado de la salud que necesitan.

Yo me sentiría profundamente honrado si tuviera su apoyo. Las familias, como la de ustedes, quienes me han apoyado en el pasado forman los cimientos de comunidades fuertes y la base de dirección fuerte.

Junto con ustedes, yo puedo continuar luchando por un California grandioso.

Agradeceré su consideración en esta elección. Gracias.

f/Ben Hueso
