Position Papers
Budget Reform
I am known for reading every page of the budget and looking creatively and critically at both the expenditure and revenue side. Structurally, there is much to fix, beginning with the 2/3rd threshold.
Economy and Jobs
California must become the global foundry for the green economy, the creative economy.
All our future leaders of California are in third grade today. We must restore full funding to education as a state priority and train and support our teachers as key to quality education.
