Position Papers
On Education
"In the 21st Century, the competition for jobs and for a stake in the world marketplace will be won by the young people who are best educated. In Silicon Valley, perhaps more than in any other part of the country, we must commit ourselves to providing our students with the very best education we can give them. They will be counted on to drive the high-tech world further than we have ever dreamed and they must be prepared."
- Assemblymember Mike Honda
On High-Tech
"... I've watched its remarkable transformation from Blossom Valley to Silicon Valley. ... We must continue to grow and expand our new economy, and we must continue to be leaders in the field of innovation. We must ensure that our businesses are staffed by the most talented and skilled employees. And we must ensure that our students learn the high-tech skills they'll need to compete for jobs in the 21st Century."
- Assemblymember Mike Honda
On Healthcare
"What could be more important to the families of Silicon Valley than the health and well-being of their loved ones? As a husband and a father of two, I know what it means to want the best possible care for your family. Everyone should have access to quality healthcare at affordable rates, no matter where they live, how old they are, or what background they come from."
- Assemblymember Mike Honda
