ï¿½With four years of experience as Vice Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee and now serving on the Senate Budget Committee, I will continue to fight against tax increases.ï¿½ Itï¿½s critical to balance the budget by putting the brakes on out-of-control spending,ï¿½ said Runner.
ï¿½ï¿½I look forward to serving on the Transportation and Housing Committee to help cut the red tape and make it easier to build more roads and help Californians realize the American Dream of owning their own home,ï¿½ continues Runner. ï¿½Serving on the Revenue and Taxation Committee and the Labor Committee will enable me to fight against more ridiculous and costly regulations or tax increases.ï¿½
