I am stepping up to help lead California back to greatness. I have dutifully served Los Angeles as a Police Officer, and I am not afraid to fight for the issues that affect us all.
Personal rights are the bedrock of our nation, and I oppose the overreaching, and unconstitutional policies our state administrators have been pushing and enforcing on us.
California has been in a State of Emergency for over two years, and it is becoming clear that our legislators are not following the science, but following the money, and wanting more control. I fervently object to Mandates, Vaccine Passports, Digital ID, and anything else that restricts your free movement in society, and forces unwanted, experimental medical procedures upon you.
Soft on crime bills, weak DA's, and a defund the police mentality is destroying our cities. Crime is surging all over California, and the good men and women of law enforcement need to be assured that they are supported by their communities. The primary role of government is to ensure the safety of the population they govern. Their power is derived from the consent of those people. The rank and file officers of this state should not be utilized as the army of the elite, but instead, as the protectors of the people. Politicians seem to forget that.
I will work to repeal or amend bills such as AB109. This bill was signed into law in 2011, which sought to lessen the crowding of the state prison system by transferring "non-violent" (at the time of arrest) offenders to county jails or releasing them to county supervision, instead of parole. We continue to see repeat offenders commit a majority of the crimes, because of bills like this.
Approved in November 2014. Proposition 47 downgraded drug possession and some thefts (like gun thefts) from felonies to misdemeanors and allowed tens of thousands of former offenders to remove felonies from their records. This allows repeat offenders to break the law with little to no consequences, providing no supervision, accountability, or treatment for addicted offenders.
Proposition 57, a measure that was supported by two-thirds of California voters in 2016,
has resulted in the release of violent offenders, back into your cities after serving only a small portion of their sentences, without supervision. We need much better accountability.
The residents of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties are feeling the surge of crime in our areas. With limited patrol resources and officers to fill vacancies, I will work with our community law enforcement to ensure that they have the tools, and personnel necessary to combat the rise in crime rates across our area. It's time to put a stop to the victimization of criminals and stand for law and order.
This is a huge reason for what drove me to run. I am a concerned dad of two young boys and I do not co-parent with the Government. Bills, like SB 866, that strip parental consent away, and the school curriculums that are prioritizing and promoting gender dysphoria, CRT, and a disgust for our country, will have lasting implications for the future. We need to get back to basics and you can be sure, I will be speaking up and standing up for your kids and our parental rights.
As Californians, we already pay some of the highest taxes in the country. Our sales and gas taxes are the highest in the nation, and the fees and new taxes continue to pile on. Sacramento has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Easing the burden of overtaxing the citizens, needs to be examined. Record inflation has gripped our nation, shortages, and supply-chain issues are inevitable. I want the hard working citizens of California to keep the money they rightfully deserve.
I oppose bills like SB9 and SB10 because I believe these centrally controlled, one-size-fits-all bills, do not serve our unique communities. Zoning laws need to be handled locally and take many circumstances into consideration. Southern California is dealing with water and energy issues as well, and our current leadership has done nothing to address these issues, except mandate more affordable housing.
