Hello, I’m Baron
And i represent an independent california
one Trick Pony
When it really comes down to it, this is just a huge tax on the working poor. It’s a tax on getting to work and back home again to take your kids to soccer. It’s another tax because our Legislature WILL NOT live within its means. It’s a tax because our legislature has over-promised and under-delivered (again!) and will not stand up for the voters. Let’s face it: our govt is financially irresponsible and disrespectful!
My competitor Senator Allen and I AGREE on this one. There is TOO MUCH MONEY IN POLITICS. However, he is swimming in $1m+ in mostly union contributions, thus guaranteeing that you, the voter, will be paying more and more money (in higher taxes) to cover the rising salaries, benefits and guaranteed pensions of govt employees that Senator Allen will be protecting.
FACT: Our public education system SUCKS. Unions, overpaid school board members, restrictions on school choice, low pay for teachers, over-crowded classrooms, and curriculum that doesn’t advance the future of our students is shameful. I will work tirelessly to bring cohesive, sustainable, but aggressive and meaningful improvements to ALL levels of our educational system.
We used to be the best place to start a company, now companies are leaving at a tremendous rate. I will work to keep our jobs in California. I will strive to ensure good jobs and better profits for business owners.
I will work to make it easier, and more cost effective for anyone, regardless of race or economic stature to start, fund and thrive in a new business initiative. It shouldn’t cost thousands of dollars more to support a fruitless bureaucracy to build your California dream.
Innovative entrepreneurs and small businesses are what make Southern California so special. Let’s keep it that way!
A Responsible Clean Environment
Restrictions and Education aren’t going to do it. We need to go after the biggest environmental criminals — the GOVERNMENT and CORPORATIONS. But we also need incentives for multi-family housing, for recycling, and we need to restore a sense of pride in our communities because at the end of the day, we’re really the ones responsible for our environment.
Harsh criminal penalties for perpetrators matched with lush incentives for responsible participants, without new taxes on individuals or small businesses.
Keep our swimming and surfing beaches clean, and make sure we have reliable, safe drinking water and fresh air to breath.
