JOBS / ECONOMY
Leaders in our communities have been promising jobs for decades. There is no single solution for this problem. It’s time for all of us to work together and turn promised jobs into real jobs.
- As the gateway to the top ag producing area in the country, I will work with public and private partners to make Congressional District 10 a world-class base for developing and producing new ag technologies. Our agriculture feeds the world and future generations—technology is the key to helping agriculture survive and thrive in the 21st century.
- Health care is the number one growth industry in our community. We need more doctors, nurses and other health care professionals. I will work with state and local leaders and institutions to help produce workers who can fill these ever-increasing health care jobs.
- Ag exports are a huge part of the Valley’s economy, and the Trump administration’s trade policies are a real threat to the industry. Mexico is the number one market for California’s dairy industry, and current export policies will be destructive to the region’s biggest economic driver. I will work with all parties to push for trade solutions that bolster the entire California economy, but especially for our beautiful Valley.
- Finally, as a country we need to invest in our crumbling infrastructure and rebuild our roads, bridges, airports, canals, dams and levees.
