ARCATA, CA – During a town hall at O&M Industries in Arcata, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today discussed the importance of job creation and economic growth, as well as her campaign to end Barbara Boxer’s 28-year career in Washington.
“I am running for U.S. Senate because I believe there is a lot we can do to take Washington back, make it listen and make it work for us,” said Fiorina. “Over the course of my career in business, starting as a secretary and working my way up to CEO, I have seen firsthand that jobs come from the small businesses that Barbara Boxer’s big-government policies are helping to destroy. It’s time we send new representation to the U.S. Senate.”
Since declaring her candidacy for U.S. Senate last November, Fiorina has made job creation and economic growth the centerpieces of her campaign. Last month, she unveiled an economic growth plan that focuses on growing the economy by lowering taxes, improving the ability of American businesses to fight for – and win – jobs and incentivizing innovation. Fiorina has built a diverse network of support and has earned the endorsements of New Majority California, the National Right to Life Committee and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
