My Top 3 Priorities

  • Invest in affordable housing, emergency shelters and supportive services to help keep people out of poverty. I will make the wealthy will pay their fair share, cut taxes for the working class and reform Prop. 13.
  • Invest in public education, early childhood education, K-12, special education, hold charter schools accountable to state standards and free four year community college.
  • Pass Single Payer to stop people from going bankrupt, losing their homes, businesses and their retirement money because their insurance keeps canceling them.



Klement Tinaj is 28-years old and lives in Los Angeles, CA. Mr. Tinaj received his Masters Degree in 2015 and now he is running for Governor of Califorina (D). As a CEO, Mr. Tinaj knows first hand that we need to invest in jobs and the economy. We must stop pushing away small bussinesses who employ more than 50% of our local residents. Higher taxes and too many regulations are destroying our economy and pushing our working class people out of the state. 

As a School owner, Mr. Tinaj knows that giving tax breaks to the wealthy forces us to cut afterschool programs, early childhood education programs, social security and job training. As the governor, Mr. Tinaj is commited to investing in public education including early childhood education, K-12, Special Education and Free-Four Year Community College. As an Educator, Mr. Tinaj knows that California needs at least 1.1 million educated workers by 2030 to keep our economy moving forward. 

Mr. Tinaj is a bright new leader with the vision and powerful voice who is willing to fight for single payer, affordable housing, 100% Renewable Energy, Cut Taxes, Reform Justice, Fix our education, balance the budgets and save for the future. For more information please check out his "Ten-Point Action Plan" on his website:

His goal is to inspire the young, give hope to the working class and a voice to the voiceless. Mr. Tinaj quoted "I want my students to look at me and be like, if my teacher can do it, I can do it. I will bring back the benefits and healthcare programs to the eldery and our veterans. I will veto any tax increase that will come across my desk and invest in jobs and our economy. I will help people out of poverty, invest in the working class and help small bussinesses survive. To my classmates and other college students who are leaving Califorina or who are struggling to pay for thier college, here is my message to you. As your next governor I will make  all 114 community colleges free so you and your friends can sit in your dorm room and follow the same steps of the man who started facebook from his Harvard dorm room. For those students who are one step away from being homeless, facing poverty or can't afford to live on campus becasue of the skyrocketing tuitions and you live in your parents house. You can follow the same steps of those two college students who started the greatest computer firm from their parents garage behind thier house". 

"As your governor I pledge to fight for your future, libery, justice and equal opportuity for all. It's time to act now to build a better tomorrow. "
