With my deep experience in policy making, academia and business, and a strong belief in the values of fiscal responsibility, transparency, and independence, I believe I have the background to successfully serve as California’s next State Controller. After earning four degrees from Harvard University, including a law degree and doctorate in political science, I served in senior roles in both Republican and Democratic presidential administrations, working directly on fiscal issues like Social Security and health care. I have been a highly sought-after voice on fiscal policy issues for many years and my commentary has appeared in major newspapers across the country and on television networks in the US and around the world.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

My approach is decidedly non-ideological, and pragmatic, while my personal background demonstrates success in working with leaders from all parts of the political spectrum. I have experience leading large teams across multiple sectors. I believe in leading by example, delegating where appropriate, and working closely with experts within and outside of government to ensure we are instituting best practices. I do not believe in silos on the teams I lead, and will foster an inclusive and respectful environment in the State Controller’s office. I lead by example, demonstrate the work ethic I expect of those who work with me, and keep my team organized and on the same page. At the same time, I find the strengths in my team members and give everyone an opportunity to thrive in their individual roles.
