Pursuit of Happiness

Strong Economy, Strong Middle Class, Strong Farming Communities & Small Business


Our economy has reached its highest inflation level in 41 years leaving families struggling to make ends meet. The latest Inflation Reduction Act, Bill HR5376, will cost us 16 Billion. Spending more will only result higher prices for food, gas, energy and ultimately increase the taxes we pay. We need to halt the spending, revisit policy and look toward fiscally responsible ways to revitalize our economy.


The rule of law has been softened in favor of police de-funding measures resulting in an extreme increase in crime and drugs on our streets. We deserve to live in safe communities. I believe we need to adhere to the law, hold criminals accountable for the crimes they commit and support law enforcement officers who defend and protect us.

Gas prices and energy independence

Our gas prices are at their highest despite our ability to be energy independent using clean options. I support opening our pipelines and increasing our production of clean energy and will support policies to re-claim our independence. I will vote against policies that deplete our reserves to sell to foreign states that will increase our gas prices and put our environment at risk.

2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms

I firmly believe in our 2nd amendment. As law-abiding citizens, we have the right to bear arms to protect our families against foreign or domestic tyranny. The safest nations are those with law-abiding gun owners. I will fight for our right to protect our selves and this great nation.

Parental governance in Education and Healthcare

Our educational and healthcare systems are broken. With weakened, socially divisive curriculum in education and forced medical treatments being pushed upon children, parents are left in the dark and dis-empowered. Parents need to govern their children's education and healthcare. I will fight to restore parental control in concerning any policy raised.

Our Farmers

Farmers and their families who grow the food we depend on are being threatened with closure due to overarching government reach on traditional fertilization practices in the name of the environment. The policies being pushed upon them are threatening their ability to maintain production and make ends meet threatening closure. I will fight to maintain farmers autonomy and support farmer’s choice policies.


This country was founded on those seeking a better life and working hard to get it. I support legal immigration. Illegal Immigration encourages crime, funds human trafficking and floods our country with drugs like Fentanyl that are on the rise. Our borders need to be secured to keep criminals out. I will support policies that protect safe, legal immigration.

Small businesses

Small businesses are account for 99% businesses in our nation providing employment for 61 Million citizens. They are the heart of the nation’s economy. As a small business owner I have witnessed the overarching policies that led to the closer of 31% of small businesses over the last two years. I will fight for policies to re-empower small business owners and remove constraints.

Current Events


To the Migrant Community of District 18,

Our country is living in very difficult times because of the division that has been created by allowing individuals to decide which party best represents their values & principles.

To tell the truth, it is very difficult for a person to find all his ideals represented in one party. For example, Latinos & Latinas can find our ideas of a better immigration system in one party, while the other party respects our fundamental rights as living beings. Nevertheless, both parties are working to build a prosperous economy that allows us to have a decent & well-paying job.

I launched a candidacy to unify minorities from California Congressional District 18 and to see our ethnic groups better represented in U.S. Congress. But also to put an end to the unlimited re-elections of a group of legislators from both parties; those who have had permanent power for decades. That’s why I have now considered the only option we have in District 18 to increase the strength of our minority communities is to support the candidacy of:

Peter Hernandez

Through his work ethic, I’ve seen his vision that seeks to improve the immigration processes for our county. Peter supports a better economic policy that benefits the middle working class & low-income minorities. His work is a constant reflection of his respect for our rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Peter Hernandez is a member of the San Benito County Board of Supervisors. He’s a small business owner who has been a leader in redevelopment of Downtown Hollister. He’s especially strong on knowing how federal mandates impose costs and burdens on local governments and businesses. He would be a dependable vote in Congress in support of traditional business positions.
