I have a proven track record of promoting free market principles and advocating for a more business-friendly climate that fosters economic growth and creates well-paying jobs. My focus is on fighting against socialist policies that are driving up inflation, making it difficult for families to make ends meet, harming small businesses, and driving companies out of California.
Securing our border is the first step towards developing a practical and long-term solution to fix our immigration system. We need a common-sense approach that is clear, concise, understandable, and enforceable. The alarming record number of illegal border crossings and drugs entering our country is putting our families and communities at risk, and we must put an end to it.
My mission is to prioritize the safety and security of our communities by standing with our law enforcement officials and cracking down on crime. I believe in providing our police with MORE funding, not less, to equip them with the necessary tools and resources to combat criminal activity and protect our families and our children for generations to come.
As an accomplished IT business leader in the automotive industry, I believe that a competitive and innovative private sector is the best driver of technological progress. I support policies that reduce government regulation and encourage entrepreneurship, such as tax cuts, deregulation, and investment in R&D. I also support strengthening math, science, and engineering education to develop a skilled workforce that can drive innovation.
A balanced "America First" sustainable energy policy that promotes innovation is vital to our growth as a nation. In Congress, I will prioritize the development of a balanced and sustainable national energy policy that focuses on renewable energy, domestic production, and the safe use of fossil fuels to ensure energy independence and security, maintain America's global competitiveness, and strengthen our economy.
If elected, I will be committed to lowering taxes for families, seniors, young adults, and small businesses, opposing any attempts to increase the federal gas tax, and restoring critical state and local tax (SALT) and mortgage interest deductions. I believe that hardworking Californians should be able to keep more of their hard-earned money, and I will work to simplify and reform our tax system to ensure fairness for all.
