Quotes

“I have been a staunch advocate for moving America away from our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and foreign oil, and have supported efforts to cut our greenhouse gas emissions. We must become energy independent and make strategic investments in clean, renewable, and sustainable energy right here at home. I will continue to fight for the protection of our coastlines and open spaces, as well as a healthy environment for our community and our country.”

“Ventura County is one of the most beautiful districts in the nation to live, work and visit. Out community understands the need to protect our environment, use our limited resources wisely, and to plan responsibly for climate change. “
