Vote for an environment friendly Highway 101 tech corridor.
- Californians take great pride in our Mediterranean climate, our parks, forests, mountains, oceans and wildlife which make our state unique. Our universities such as UCSB offer world-class environmental studies programs because our society needs educated citizens who can maintain our special environment while addressing future problems. My priority is to make California energy efficient and to help our graduating students find more opportunity in entrepreneurial business practices than in the government sector.
- In this hot economy expensive commercial real estate poses big problems for Santa Barbara State Street merchants. The City has now turned to tech companies such as Amazon, Invoca, Green Hills Software, Zoom Video Communications and Well Heath Inc. for growth. I will incentivize these tech companies to set space up in other cities including Santa Maria and Oxnard and I will attract energy efficient and environmental technology start-ups to Santa Barbara.
