Lifting the middle class.


Let's bring back basic fairness.

I have a simple philosophy about what type of society is best so all Americans can live the most prosperous lives–create public policies that allow working families the opportunity to move into the middle class. After we do that allow the entrepreneurs and risk takers to make as much money as the free market allows, as long as they pay their fair share of taxes and are not exploiting others. 

Over the last forty years, the great American middle class has been shrinking. That means that more and more people are falling into a category considered low income. In Fresno County, for instance, 43% of residents are low income. To me, that's unacceptable. Here are some changes we can make to begin turning the tide:

  • Create national infrastructure goals to rebuild America's roads, bridges and airports. 


  • create national goals to rebuild water storage systems and retrofit farms and dairies for greater sustainability. 


  • Provide job training for all displaced workers. 


  • Lower taxes for small and local businesses.


  • Lower tax rates for middle class families.


  • offer first-time homeowners sweat equity incentives (like affordable habitat for humanity) as down payment.
