Economy and Jobs
As the former Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, and a member of the California Board of Equalization, throughout my career I’ve advocated for policies that create a business-friendly climate to grow the economy and create good-paying jobs in our community.
Before the pandemic, our economy reached new records and unemployment rates were the lowest they had been in 40 years. We can regain and build on this growth by helping our small businesses get back on their feet. This includes keeping taxes low and fighting burdensome and unnecessary federal regulations that stifle business growth and job creation.
It’s important that we manage the staggering multi-trillion-dollar debt that our children and grandchildren will inherit if we don’t rein in spending. California families pay some of the highest taxes in the country, and are still expected to spend within their means and balance their checkbooks. Your government should be expected to do the same.
