Carly Fiorina Brings Statewide Jobs Tour to Los Angeles

MARINA DEL REY, CA - U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was today joined by former Secretary of Commerce and former Kellogg Company Chief Executive Officer Carlos Gutierrez to host a press conference at Patty’s Presto Pizza in Marina Del Rey on the sixth stop of Fiorina’s statewide jobs tour.

“Our nation is in the midst of a terrible economic and political crisis – a fact only further underscored by the jobs numbers released this morning. We desperately need leaders in the U.S. Senate who will prioritize the issues most important to our fellow Californians, and that means pushing for real jobs and a sustainable economic recovery,” said Gutierrez. “Carly’s economic growth plan focuses on the policies we must have implemented in order to ensure a strong economic future, and that’s why we need her fighting for us in the U.S. Senate.”

Gutierrez currently serves as national co-chairman of the Business Coalition 100, a bipartisan coalition of more than 100 current and former business leaders in California and across the nation supporting Fiorina’s campaign to defeat Barbara Boxer. Also joining Fiorina at the press conference today were Patty’s Presto Pizza Owner Patty Phillips, 720CreditScore.com Owner Philip Tirone and Westway Electric Systems President and Associated Building and Contractors representative Chris Lang.

“Today we received the disappointing news that 27,600 Californians lost their jobs last month – further proof that temporary government jobs do not provide the foundation of growth we need in order to experience a true economic recovery. Sadly, this is only the latest in a string of disappointing reports we have received about the state of our economy over the last several months,” said Fiorina. “Despite the fact that Californians are staring 12.3 percent unemployment in the face, Barbara Boxer continually refuses to implement the pragmatic policies we need in order support the small-businesses and entrepreneurs who will help create jobs and grow the economy. That’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

Fiorina kicked off her statewide jobs tour in San Diego last month to highlight the devastating effects of the job-killing policies Barbara Boxer has supported over the course of her 28 years in Washington. Since then, Fiorina has brought her statewide jobs tour to Clovis, Sacramento, Beverly Hills and San Francisco to lay out the ideas in her economic growth plan designed to support real job creation through tax cuts, less regulation and government policies that support small businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs.
