Good morning, friends!

On this the eve of Election Day 2006, I wanted to take a moment and highlight three things that would also carry great importantance for me as a U.S. Representative.

While always working to return our fair share of federal funding for transportation and other issues specifically relevant to Southern California and the San Fernando Valley, following are three bills I would like to introduce if elected:
  1. Cancer Research – Private Sector / Federal Program: Increased U.S. funding for medical and health research to be shared by government and the private sector, primarily in the areas of cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and mental health.

  2. Meaningful Federal Lobbying and Campaign Finance Reform: The McCain-Feingold Bill did not go far enough to clean up federal political campaign financing. We need to cut out special interest funding of federal campaigns to level the playing field so the voices of everyday Americans can be heard.

  3. Engineering & Science Incentives for Elementary and Middle School Children: The federal government should invest much more in engineering, science education and basic scientific research to ensure that we remain competitive in the global marketplace.
There is likely one issue that resonates most prominently for each of us, though politics is not a single-issue process. We have to do what is best for America, and strive to reach across party lines in order to do so.

I hope I can count on your continued support, and, for those of you in our District, your vote tomorrow!

Despite irresponsible journalism and other strong messages to the contrary: Your vote always makes a difference!
