My Top 3 Priorities

  • Education: Common Core has been a complete disaster for students. Our educational system should not be a one size fits all, but localized as much as possible. Some positive options include school choice, merit based teacher pay, and charter schools.
  • Stop Socialism: I will defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It is the free market principles that I believe in, that our founding fathers believed in that allowed our country to flourish and bring people out of poverty.
  • Restore the CA Dream: If CA was a sovereign nation, it would rank as the 5th Largest economy, yet we have unaffordable housing and too many regulations. We need to cut the red tape with jobs, lower taxes, and improved infrastructure.

Answer from Rhonda Furin:

I am a strong advocate in building infrastruction along with the develpoments of new housing, this includes updating the roads within the area. As the population & businesses increase with traffic, so do the improvements. Pay as you go option, as it seems when they get all the money upfront, we never seem to see the completed projects and the money is depleted. Accountability for money spent.
