Local and State Mainstreet Business

Like the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men and women in Sherwood Forest, I will aim my bow to the target of forming a main street contract for the American people and business of this rural district.  I support main street and our rural economies by:

  • Jobs at living wages to reinvest in Americans and policies that help working families
  • Equal access to quality, public education and job training
  • Guaranteed healthcare for all
  • a secure retirement, with the ability to retire in dignity
  • affordable and sustainable housing and protection from hunger
  • provide for a sustainable environment and the natural beauty and rights of nature
  • protect and support tourism, the arts and music
  • a just taxation system where corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share (close the corporate loophole in proposition 13),  support fair trade and global peace
  • affordable housing and rent controls when necessary
  • work with and protect small and medium family farmers and their right to farm organically and locally
  • I will listen to you —the people of Assembly District 5
  • As a small business owner, I understand the challenges of operating a small business.

Please see the Rural California for more details on supporting our rural economies and middle class jobs.
