Real solutions to our Homeless Crisis
Our nation is experiencing an unprecedented homelessness crisis. You might be surprised to learn that while California spends more than any other state addressing its homeless population, our state is home to nearly half our nation’s homeless population. That is unacceptable. With billions of dollars spent annually to address a problem that continues to worsen, taxpayers are getting a poor return on investment. Moreover, the homeless population grows despite unprecedented forms of rent control, eviction controls, and moratoriums to curb the housing shortage nationwide. The only solution to address the housing shortage responsible for increasing homelessness is incentivizing private, affordable housing investment. This will also help our economy thrive, creating opportunities for people at every end of the socioeconomic spectrum.

Fixing our Housing Shortage
Millions of property owners across the nation struggle to manage and navigate the demands of the multi-tiered eviction moratoriums –reminiscent of extreme forms of rent and eviction controls. Consequently, property owners throughout our country choose to remove their rental units entirely from the market.

Now is the time to relax regulations on housing construction throughout our state. We also need to encourage the building of new single-family units, giving working-class families access to more options. In short, the problem demands an end to the eviction and rent moratoriums, which will ultimately loosen the shackles on our burdened housing market.

Protecting Private Property
We must protect homeowners’ and landowners’ private property rights. We have recently witnessed how the California State Government took Central Valley farmland to build their high-speed rail boondoggle through eminent domain. Today, eminent domain is a threat to the private property rights of landowners throughout the Central Valley. As someone who represents clients who are the victims of government overreach, I will prioritize protecting private property rights here and throughout our nation. Our farmers have devoted their lives to their family business and home. We must defend them from the self-serving long arm of government.

Standing Up for Our Law Enforcement
According to the CDC, our nation recorded the highest increase in our nation’s homicide rate in modern history. In particular, the homicide rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020. Calls for defunding police are dangerous, but they are also contrary to what we need to do; invest in public safety.

There is no doubt that conduct by a handful of police officers in recent years has inflamed racial tensions and diminished the public trust in law enforcement. Unfortunately, however, some have taken the actions of a few bad actors to represent all police officers. As a result, misguided movements to defund police departments have come when California crime increased 31 percent in 2020. Unfortunately, this is the consequence of a culture that often discounts police officers' risk in safeguarding our communities.

We cannot bring meaningful reforms by following false narratives and reciting political talking points. Instead, we must take it upon ourselves to be an agent for change in our community. This is not a time to defund police departments but invest, staff, and support them.

We need leadership that shows the brave men and women that put their life on the line every day that we are thankful for their commitment and sacrifice. By acknowledging the good instead of focusing on the bad, we can break the lines that divide us while creating meaningful reforms that will bridge communities of color and law enforcement.

Tackling Inflation
How much are you paying for groceries? I took one look at my receipt from a recent trip to the grocery store and nearly had a heart attack! How does Washington D.C. expect us San Joaquin County families to put food on the table to feed our loved ones? President Biden and Democrats try to deflect the blame, while their spendthrift ways cost us when we get gas or buy groceries for our families.

As your Congressman, I will tackle skyrocketing inflation by reducing our $30 trillion national debt without raising taxes and using the same fiscal discipline most families exhibit every day. Our federal government does not have a resource problem; it has a spending problem. It is time to cut spending while ensuring taxpayers don't suffer the brunt of putting our financial house in order.

Returning to Energy Independence
The average gas price tops out at almost $6 a gallon statewide. One fill-up can cost $80, $100, or over $120. We need that money to put food back on our family’s table.

Just two years ago, the U.S. surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest oil producers. Yet, since his first day in office, President Biden has shut down drilling and blocked pipelines. As a result, surviving U.S. producers are hesitant to produce in fear of the Biden Administration’s war on American production. This is wrong, and it’s had a devastating impact on working families throughout our country.

You can count on me to stand up to the Biden Administration and fight for an energy revolution that will finally give us relief at the pump. We can achieve energy independence by backing projects like the Keystone Pipeline and drilling for oil in the ANWR.

It is time for full-scale American Energy Independence. We can no longer afford radical leftist policies that make life miserable for working families.

Foreign Policy with a Backbone
Under President Obama, the description of America’s foreign policy strategy was leading from behind. Under President Biden, there doesn’t seem to be a strategy.

Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan emboldened Putin to move on Ukraine. And his weak and indecisive response will further encourage China to take more aggressive actions against Taiwan. We are dealing with the results of strategic indifference, and I fully believe China will use this opportunity to make its move on Taiwan. We need to focus on these threats before they become military action.

As you Congressman, I will not waver. We need a foreign policy strategy that recognizes our principles and leaders that express them clearly. We need to oppose imperialist aggression and protect its targets.

The cost of leadership is high, yet, so is the price of indifference.
