Los Altos Hills, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today addressed members of the South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition (SPARC) and shared with them her priorities for California: creating jobs, jumpstarting the economy and reining in out-of-control federal spending.
“After 18 years of Barbara Boxer’s failed leadership, Californians deserve a senator who will fight for their best interests, create jobs and help rein in out-of-control federal spending,” said Fiorina. “I am running for the U.S. Senate because the decisions made by the Senate impact every family and every business in America, and I believe I can make a difference in helping address our nation’s most pressing challenges.”
Since announcing her candidacy for U.S. Senate in November, Fiorina has traveled across the state to talk to Californians about the challenges facing their businesses, families and communities. In just the last week, she has met with business, political and community leaders in both Modesto and San Diego to discuss solutions to our state’s most critical issues.
“Winning a seat in the U.S. Senate against career politicians requires a broad and diverse network of grassroots supporters – the true heart and soul of our party – and I am grateful to have the opportunity to talk with Californians who share my vision for the future of our golden state,” added Fiorina.
SPARC was founded in 2000 to bring together individuals dedicated to creating positive change in local, state and federal politics. The organization strives to energize Republicans in supporting the principles of low taxes, limited government and individual responsibility.
While she is perhaps best known as the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard Company (HP), what is not as well known is Carly worked her way through undergraduate and graduate school. A self-made woman, she started her business career as a secretary and went on to become the first, and to date, the only woman to lead a Fortune 20 company. Click here to read more about Carly.
