My Top 3 Priorities

  • I’m a tax-cutting, tough-on-crime public servant who will stand up for what’s right.
  • It’s time for lower taxes, defending Prop. 13, safer streets, cheaper gas, parent-powered schools, real homeless solutions, and a secure border.
  • Let’s turn California around and make it a Golden State once again!
