Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I love this state, as a third generation native Californian I have raised my family and run a business right here in California. I am ashamed that our state has deteriorated so much that my grandkids may not be able to build their lives here like I did. Rising housing prices, lack of infrastructure, and a broken education system are only the start to our worsening problems. When I was elected as County Supervisor in 2018, I wanted to do my best to grow the local economy and rebuild crumbling infrastructure. I could have never imagined the challenges that awaited me. Instead of building roads, I was fighting with the state to equitably distribute vaccines to our county. Instead of building housing, I was spearheading research to help keep my community safe. Instead of tackling the homelessness crisis, I was handing out food to families that were out of work. I am proud of the work I and my colleagues have done, despite the terrible and arbitrary edicts from the Governor. I offer the unique combination of elected experience, small business acumen, and a rarely seen backbone in a politician. As your next Governor I will address our water crisis first, setting aside funding for conveyance and expanding dams. Our housing shortage, education and looming pension debt are all in my sights as well. As a proud Libertarian, I can work across the aisle to get the job done. www.hewitt4ca.com
