Position Papers
Improving California's Public Education System
Over the last three decades, funding for California's public schools has declined from 5th in the nation in per-pupil spending to 37th. That's a disgrace! Our children deserve better, and the future of Santa Clara County and the state of California depend on it.
Enhancing & Protecting Our Quality of Life
Although Santa Clara County's economy has improved significantly, what has often suffered is our quality of life.
Working in Partnership to Create Jobs
The private sector--not government--is the engine of job creation in Santa Clara County.
