Personal Background
I moved to the Santa Clarita Valley in 1964. My  involvement in our community has included serving on the board of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, elected the first mayor of Santa Clarita and since 1992 Congressman representing the 25th Congressional District. My wife Patricia and I have been married for 46 years.

What is/are the most important issues?
Stem the tide of illegal immigration through tougher enforcement; address gas prices though the expansion of domestic energy production, including offshore drilling, and secure passage of my top legislative proposals.

What makes you feel qualified to serve?
I have fought hard on behalf of the residents of the 25th District to limit the scope of government, cut spending, reduce the tide of illegal immigration, and make college affordable to everyone.  As Ranking Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee, I am in a unique position to promote those goals each day.
