State Assemblymember since 2017. Previously worked as an attorney and high school English teacher. Co-owns a farm with former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, who is also running in the recall.

  • Age: 36
  • Party: Republican
  • Home: Rocklin
  • Likes: Consumer privacy laws, the Second Amendment, small government
  • Dislikes: Special interest money, social media censorship, “one-man rule

If He Becomes Governor:

  • Would address homelessness through more shelters and treatment, and conduct an audit of all state funding and programs
  • Would redirect funding from projects such as high-speed rail to highways, bridges, dams, reservoirs, levees, power plants
  • Would end the state of emergency for the pandemic on his first day in office and opposes mask mandates for students and teachers
  • Would support school vouchers to allow funding to follow the student, and break up the Los Angeles Unified School District into smaller districts
  • Would oppose “critical race theory” being taught in schools
  • Would undo “sanctuary state” designation that limits federal immigration officials from working with local law enforcement
  • Would reverse expansion of Medi-Cal benefits to undocumented people
  • Would refuse to support any candidate who accepts contributions from lobbyists
  • Would use executive orders to roll back agency regulations that businesses find restrictive such as those on gig workers  

Personal Quote:

“As your Governor, I’ll take action to turn California around just as rapidly as I spoke in that debate. No time to waste.”
