PLEASANTON, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today led a town hall meeting at Trainer Communications’ Pleasanton, California, headquarters with entrepreneurs and innovators from the Silicon Valley to discuss the economy, job creation and government fiscal responsibility.
“Small-business owners and entrepreneurs represent the best of what our country has to offer and are the true job creators in our economy,” said Fiorina. “If we’re going to be successful in achieving economic recovery, we have to learn from the real-world experiences of those who work hard to not only keep small businesses open, but also growing. They know best what’s needed to drive innovation and entrepreneurism, and to create jobs.”
Since announcing her candidacy for U.S. Senate in November, Carly has traveled across the state – including stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, Modesto, Salinas and San Luis Obispo – to hear what challenges the people of California are facing in their businesses, families and communities. In the coming months, she will continue to meet with Californians across the state to discuss our most pressing issues and collaborate on effective solutions.
“Unfortunately, over the last 18 years, Barbara Boxer has done little to support small businesses and innovation, and in fact, her support for higher taxes and more regulations has made it even more difficult for them to thrive in our state. As a U.S. senator, my priority will be to promote policies that make it easier, not harder, for small businesses and startups to do what they do best: innovate and create jobs.”
Earlier this week, Carly announced her grassroots leadership team, including Saman Dias as chair of Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses for Carly . With the support of these dedicated Californians, Carly will continue to travel around the state to discuss her campaign priorities: job creation, economic development and controlling federal spending.
