For too long, California has rolled out the red tape instead of the red carpet for business. It's time we enact policies in Sacramento that get government out of the way of the job creators and allows them to do their job in making California prosper again.


I am honored to have the endorsement of the California Small Business Association and of business owners throughout the district, such as Maggie Kestly, Fred Thomas, Joe Grinstead, Eric Little, Richard Perini, Daniel & Mane Berbel, and Bert Boeckmann, who all know that I will champion policies that keep jobs in our state and reward entrepreneurs for the hard work they pour into their businesses.

I want to share with you why I am running for office, and am asking that you share this video with your friends, too.

In the Assembly I will fight to keep dangerous criminals where they belong behind bars.  The integral funding that we provide to our law enforcement should never be a pawn for political posturing.  We must make sure that codified protections exist to secure our law enforcement’s funding.  Additionally, I fully support all of our peace officers and vehemently oppose any effort to weaken the Peace Officers’ Bill of Rights.

— May 24, 2016 Jarrod DeGonia for Assembly

When I am in Sacramento, I look forward to securing the funding our kids’s education deserves.  Instead of punishing success by stripping schools of the funding they need to maintain their excellence, I will push legislation that rewards their achievements.  I will duplicate the efforts of schools and school districts that work hard to turn around the records of failing school and districts.  I want a California where parents are no longer faced with a decision to pay high private school tuition in order to avoid unsatisfactory public schools.   With our schools training the future workforce, it is important that our students graduate from great schools, ready to start work on day one!
