Vote yourself a raise

  • Adopt administration policies for higher wages including long-term employees who have not had a wage increase

  • Cut taxes and regulations and promote activity through more aggressive government spending.  Don’t punish success.  I will make it easier for business to thrive and to hire.  Businesses should be investing and consumers spending.

  • Expand skill development, apprenticeship with vocational training and baccalaureate programs. Apprenticeships place students into great jobs without the crippling debt of traditional four-year college degrees. However, some students in Santa Maria would have better economic outcomes if Allan Hancock College offered baccalaureate degrees.
