San Diego, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today led a roundtable discussion at Hawthorne Power Systems with San Diego business, community and political leaders. Together, they discussed the challenges involved in growing the region’s economy, creating jobs and improving the quality of life for their employees, constituents and communities and heard directly from Carly about her views on a variety of issues.
“For too long, government interference and overregulation has made it more and more difficult for small-business owners to grow and create jobs – and up and down the state, Californians are rightfully frustrated and ready for a change. I appreciate meeting with this group of distinguished local leaders to hear their concerns and their perspective on what solutions would practically work to address those challenges,” said Fiorina. “Unfortunately over the last 18 years, Barbara Boxer has lost touch with everyday Californians. She has become a product of Washington and now represents the special interests that finance her career rather than the people of our state. As senator, I would make it a top priority to continue this level of dialogue with Californians and to make informed choices that take into account the viewpoint of those most directly impacted by decisions made in Washington.”
Since announcing her candidacy for U.S. Senate in November, Fiorina has traveled across the state to hear what challenges Californians are facing in their businesses, families and communities. In the coming months, she will continue to meet with constituents across the state to discuss our most pressing issues and collaborate on effective solutions. Just last week, Fiorina held a roundtable with local leaders in Modesto where the discussion focused largely on agricultural and water-related issues.
Following the roundtable, Fiorina will join the Republican Party of San Diego County at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center for their meeting where she will discuss her goals and priorities if elected senator to create more jobs, trigger economic growth and control irresponsible federal spending.
