6th Assembly District Election Musings

6th Assembly District election scoop!

We voters in the 6th are being bombarded by expensive mailers from candidates Beth Gaines and Andy Pugno that are paid for by outside special interests.  These Gaines and Pugno mailers clogging our mailboxes throw dirt at one another while having nothing to do with the important issues which face us.  You will be amazed if you check on who the big-time donors for both Gaines and Pugno are.  We need an Assemblyman who represents US rather than big-money from outside the District. 

A quote from TV’s “Morning Joe”:  "You're going to see someone, I think, come out of the middle who is fiscally conservative, socially tolerant, and I think California can be a trendsetter on that."

Someone who can “come out of the middle,” who is free of phony “pledges,” and who can spark a refreshing new era in local politics, is Regy Bronner.  Before marking ballots, 6th AD voters can see what Regy has to say at:  http://bronner4assembly.com/blog/

I visited the site for Mr. Bronner in order to try to learn more about him. The website, and specifically the "Issues Archive" and the Issues brochure, are heavy on platitudes and light on solutions. For example, the top article in the Issues Archive says "We need to reach across the aisle and begin the solution process. No “pledges”, no excuses, just hard work. It is time to work out financial solutions, attract jobs to the district, and implement these changes." Sounds good, but also empty. What is the solution process? What are those financial solutions? How do you propose to attract jobs to the district? I cruised over to Andy Pugno's site to compare: "As the owner of a small business law firm for many years, I know that incumbent politicians are killing jobs by over-spending, over-taxing and over-regulating. We must create a business environment that encourages job creation." That's more specific, and also more in sync with my experience and the experience of other entrepreneurs, small businessman and the gainfully employed. We are fortunate to have a choice between 2 conservatives now. I hope those thoughtfully considering who to vote for to indeed visit Mr. Bronner's site, and then Mr. Pugno's (www.andypugno.com) to see for themselves.

I don't see where your quote from Pugno is specific about how he will create jobs. Mr Bronner is retired from the Computer Technology Business and knows how to bring those jobs to our area.

Hi Ms. Cohn. My understanding of Mr. Pugno's quotation is that his plan is to reduce taxes and regulations. I don't believe the government creates jobs, but can only help maintain the right environment for job creation. In that respect, Mr. Pugno's quotation is exactly on target. I am not retired, and have started multiple businesses (also in the computer industry). Higher taxes and more regulations do not create jobs, nor do they create the environment for jobs to be created. Especially given Mr. Bronner's experience with computers, he must surely understand how a highly mobile workforce can be employed anywhere. If the environment is not business friendly here, companies will simply do their hiring and their business elsewhere. As a voter, come June 5th, I can only make the best decision based on the information available. If Mr. Bronner has more specific information, it is not on his site. Mr. Pugno has already made plans that I agree with available.

Reducing taxes and regulations are the magic elixer we need to create jobs. When George Bush lowered taxes and regulations, it created jobs. There was no recession or bailout. He lowered taxes and regulations and it created jobs. This is not rhetoric. It is science...just like the science that states the earth is 5,000 years old.

Mr. Bandes, what do you have against expensive mailers? Expensive mailers also create jobs. People throw out those expensive mailers in the trash. These mailers can be recycled. The people at the recycle facility can sort through peoples' trash in order to sift out those expensive mailers and recycle them. That creates jobs. Mr. Bandes, are you against creating jobs?
