THE HOWARD JARVIS TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION’S CHOICE TO KEEP TAXES DOWN

In the State Senate, I will continue my efforts to ensure tax dollars are spent wisely, protect Proposition 13 and oppose efforts to raise taxes.

A FISCAL CONSERVATIVE TO FIGHT GOVERNMENT WASTE

As County Supervisor, I cut wasteful spending and worked hard to put dollars into essential services like public safety.

In the Senate, I will support efforts to use performance based budgeting to eliminate inefficiencies, fight to make government more transparent and push to make our elected officials more accountable to the people they serve.

 

Experience to Balance BUDGETS

During my tenure in public service, I have passed 13 straight balanced budgets, and increased funding for law enforcement.

 

AN OPPONENT OF THE HIGH-SPEED RAIL BOONDOGGLE

Rob strongly opposes wasting $70 billion on the high-speed rail boondoggle that will run from Los Angeles to San Francisco. 

 

LAW ENFORCEMENT’S CHOICE TO FIGHT GANGS AND DRUGS

Under my leadership, our city put more officers on patrol, improved response times and beefed up programs to fight gangs, drugs and violence.

In the Senate, I will continue my efforts to protect families from violence and oppose schemes to release more dangerous criminals from prisons.

 

A FARMER FIGHTING FOR OUR WATER

As a local farmer and farm bureau member, I have seen how state and federal water policies have hurt our farms, crippled our economy and added to unemployment.

That’s why I have led efforts to improve ground water recharge and supported conservation efforts that stretched our water supplies.

It is also why I will lead efforts to speed construction of water storage and conveyance facilities like Temperance Flat so our farms and families will have the reliable water supplies they deserve.

 

TOUGH LEADERSHIP TO CLEAN UP THE CAPITOL

Send me to Sacramento and I will shine a spotlight on corruption and push to enact reforms to stop the sexual harassment epidemic that forces several legislators to resign in disgrace.

 

A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER who CREATEd JOBS

I am a small business owner who has led efforts to bring new jobs to the Valley while cutting red tape and streamlining the permit process. 

That hard work paid off when our county was recognized by NewGeography.com with a number one rank for job growth in manufacturing jobs in small markets.

Count on me in efforts to continue my opposition to job-killing regulations as well as my efforts to recruit new employers and new investment to our district so we can build a more vibrant and diverse economy.

 

A Strong advocate for our VETERANS

During my time as Supervisor, we recognized the need for increased support for our Veterans. A full-time Veterans Service Officer was hired in order to better serve and support those who served in the Armed Forces find health care, good jobs, and educational opportunities they need when they return to civilian life.

 

AN EDUCATION LEADER TO IMPROVE OUR SCHOOLS

My wife is a teacher with 22 years of experience in our local schools.  She has taught me a great deal about how we can improve educational opportunities and better prepare our students for tomorrow’s economy.

That’s why I have worked with local business leaders, to partner employers with local schools so our community develops a skilled workforce that will attract high-skilled employers and produce higher paying jobs.
