Taxes and regulations

California's taxes are among the nation's highest. Our fuel and energy are among the most expensive in the nation. These high costs hurt struggling working households the most and are causing people to leave the state. I will work to reduce taxes and hold Sacramento accountable for how they spend our tax dollars.


While our state's population has nearly doubled, over the last 40 years no significant new water storage has been built since 1980. Meanwhile, water needed for growing food is released into the ocean. I will work to help solve our state's water shortage with smarter policies combined with conservation.

Second Amendment

The Second Amendment gives law abiding people the ability to defend themselves from crime and it deters crime by putting bad guys on notice that their victims will be able to shoot back. I will work to protect our Second Amendment rights and will fight proposals that infringe on this important right.
