Education: National Labor College, Baccalaureate
Community Involvement: Former California State Senator, Assemblyman, Mayor, and Pomona Councilman
Affordability and Economic Opportunity: In Congress, I advocate for policies that benefit workers in the Chino Valley: create well-paying jobs and affordable housing, expand workforce training opportunities, protect health insurance and security social and helping small businesses.
I strongly supported the bipartisan Infrastructure Act, which brings new federal funding to upgrade our roads, transit, bridges, and more.
I’ve included language to create a new national supply chain database for manufacturers under the CHIPS and Science Act that will help our local manufacturers understand and meet supply chain needs. supply.
Provide resources for Chino Valley: To meet the needs of Chino Valley families during the pandemic, I have championed programs that have provided over $5 billion in funding to the Inland Empire, ranging from small business assistance to housing programs to help our students make up for lost learning time. I am committed to providing federal funds to the community of Chino Valley for public safety services, clean water, workforce training, and recreational opportunities.
Residence and age: Pomone, 58 years old
Occupation: Independent businessman
Education: Columbus State University in Georgia, BA in Accounting/Finance
Community Involvement: Army veteran, currently attending Chino Valley Community Church, co-founder of the San Bernardino County Patriots, co-creator of the Tri-County Sheriff’s Forum. In the past, I have served as Adjunct Chairperson for my children’s gymnastics club and Ways and Means Chairperson for their Swim Club Adjunct Program. I have coached several sports and served on the board of CYAA (Christian Youth Athletic Assn.). I started the school crossing guard program for my children at Ontario Christian Elementary School.
Homelessness/Crime: Our current leadership has encouraged homelessness. So while politicians and property developers line their pockets pretending to tackle the problem, the root causes are never confronted. As a result, the rest of us become victims of crime and the lawlessness that follows as a natural consequence. If we stop subsidizing drugs and the homeless, we might start to see real solutions unfold.
Inflation: How much do we pay now for everything? Everything depends on the implementation of the Green New Deal. This radical leftist legislation has one goal: to collapse the American economy.
Otherwise, why would Governor Newsom demand an end to the sale of all gas-powered vehicles, only to warn that you cannot charge your electric vehicle due to our failing electrical infrastructure?
You can’t plug in your Tesla during the day because the demand is too high, and you can’t charge it at night because your solar panels don’t work in the dark.
What if you really needed to go somewhere? This is madness.

Residence and age: La Habra, 59 years old
Occupation: US Representative, California 39e District
Education: University of Southern California, Bachelor of Business Administration
Community Involvement: California Assembly Member for the 65th District from 2014-2016, Board of Trustees, Orange County Global Affairs Council.
Economy: Record inflation, tax hikes, labor shortages and supply chain disruptions are hurting all Americans.
Disconnected policies, reckless spending, tax hikes and burdensome regulations from politicians in Washington and the Biden administration are making life even harder. I will continue to bring common sense to Washington, break the partisan stalemate, and get things done to get our economy back on track.
Energy: Californians are bearing the brunt of rising gas and utility prices, a failing power grid, and blackouts due to failing energy policies. Meanwhile, politicians in Washington are praising California’s energy policies as a model for the nation.
I asked Governor Newsom to suspend the state gasoline tax. I support policies that promote US energy independence, reduce costs at the pump, decrease dependence on foreign energy, expand our domestic energy supply chains, and reduce emissions.
