Fresno Small Business Owner on Why Carly Should Win

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Scott Miller, Owner, Gazebo Gardens

I had the pleasure of welcoming senate candidate Carly Fiorina and representatives from the U.S., California and local Fresno Chambers of Commerce, to my nursery today. Gazebo Gardens has been in business for nearly 90 years, and I believe that there has never before been an election more important than this one for California’s small businesses.

There have been so many recent closures in the nursery industry that it sometimes feels like the mom and pop corner nursery has become a thing of the past. But it’s not just the nursery industry—businesses of all kinds are struggling to survive in this tough economy. That is why now, more than ever, it is crucial that we elect leaders who understand that by raising taxes and increasing regulations we are killing small businesses and making it even harder to put people back to work.

Carly understands that, in order to grow our economy, we have to cut taxes, reduce regulations and reward businesses for hiring more people and being successful—not punish them. Carly knows what it takes to create a job and has the real world business experience necessary to get our economy going again. Barbara Boxer, on the other hand, has had 28 years in Washington but only a record of higher spending, more burdensome regulation and a lot of empty talk to show for it.

Defeating Barbara Boxer in November is a matter of great importance for many small business owners up and down the state. I know that, with the help of support of California’s small businesses, we can come together and elect Carly as our next United States Senator.

Carly Fiorina Issues Statement on First Scheduled Senate Debate

Friday, August 6th, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA - U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today issued the following statement on the announcement that KTVU, the San Francisco Chronicle and KQED will host the first U.S. Senate debate on September 1, 2010:

“I am pleased that Barbara Boxer has accepted one of the many opportunities we have to debate before the people of California. I also want to thank KTVU, the San Francisco Chronicle and KQED for the time, resources and energy they are all investing to make this important debate possible.

“There is much at stake in this election, and the people of California should have multiple opportunities in all parts of the state to see the two of us together, debating our very different approaches to addressing job creation, economic growth and the role of government in our lives, along with many other important issues. That is why I have accepted more than a dozen other debate invitations. To date, Barbara Boxer has accepted only one. With more than 2.2 million unemployed Californians, a record national debt and the largest tax increase in American history slated to go into effect soon, there is much to discuss. I certainly hope she’ll agree that the people of this state deserve to see us debate many times between now and November 2.”

Boxer’s “Stimulus”: Nothing But An Empty Lot

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Carly Fiorina Issues Statement in Response to Coburn McCain Report on Stimulus Waste

SACRAMENTO, CA - U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today made the following statement in response to the recently released Coburn McCain report outlining 100 "stimulus" projects that have been a deplorable use of taxpayer money and, in many cases, not only failed to create jobs but have actually eliminated jobs:

"As the economy has slowed, consumer spending has fallen flat and unemployment sits at record highs, Barbara Boxer has the audacity to continue to look Californians in the eye and claim the stimulus is working. There's no doubt the $862 billion taxpayer-funded stimulus package has failed to deliver the jobs Barbara Boxer promised it would; today, we're learning even more about the egregious spending authorized under the plan.

"A full $308 million in our tax dollars are going to a BP-owned company to build a plant that has yet to break ground. Another $2 million has been allocated to photograph exotic ants in San Francisco. Boeing – who is now taking their business and jobs to Oklahoma because of the high cost of doing business in California – received a 'no-bid contract worth nearly $16 million in stimulus money to clean up a California site it helped pollute.' That's not to mention more than $100,000 in funding for a building that, at this point, is nothing but an empty lot. Unfortunately, this kind of ridiculous use of taxpayer dollars is an all too common occurrence in Washington, yet Barbara Boxer continues to cast votes to perpetuate this system and pay for it with higher taxes. Californians deserve better. As your senator, I will stand up and be held accountable to deliver on policies that encourage real job creation, not produce empty lots and pictures of ants."

WASTEFUL CALIFORNIA STIMULUS PROJECTS

A Sampling Of The Wasteful California Projects Identified In The McCain-Coburn Stimulus Book:


In San Francisco, The California Academy Of Science Will Receive Nearly $2 Million To "Capture, Photograph, And Analyze Thousands Of Exotic Ants." "Ants Talk. Taxpayers Listen (San Francisco, CA) - $1.9 million … The California Academy of Sciences is receiving nearly $2 million to send researchers to the Southwest Indian Ocean Islands and east Africa, to capture, photograph, and analyze thousands of exotic ants. The photographs of the ants – over 3,000 species' worth, according to the grant proposal – will be posted on AntWeb, a website devoted to organizing and displaying pictures and information on the world's thousands of ant species." ("Summertime Blues," Offices Of Sen. Tom Coburn And Sen. John McCain, 8/10)

In Kern County, BP-Owned Hydrogen Energy California Was Awarded $308 Million For The Construction Of A Power Plant In December 2011. "Power Plant Construction Won't Start for at Least Two Years (Kern County, CA) - $308 million … BP may have found itself staring down huge financial losses over the past several months, but executives can take solace knowing that a stimulus windfall will help offset them. On September 28, 2009, Hydrogen Energy California, LLC (HECA), owned largely by BP, was awarded $308 million in stimulus funds to 'generate more environmentally friendly electricity by capturing carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels.' HECA is a joint venture of BP Alternative Energy North America and Rio Tinto subsidiaries. Stimulus funds 'enabled continued development of the HECA project which otherwise would have been cancelled.' Construction is not expected to begin until December 2011, nearly three years after the passage of the Recovery Act, raising serious questions about whether it is anywhere near 'shovel-ready.'" ("Summertime Blues," Offices Of Sen. Tom Coburn And Sen. John McCain, 8/10)

In Simi Valley, Boeing Received A "No-Bid Contract Worth Nearly $16 Million In Stimulus Money To Clean Up A California Site It Helped Pollute." "Firm Gets No-Bid Environmental Cleanup Contract – for a Mess It Helped Make (Simi Valley, CA) - $15.8 million … It's the 'Pottery Barn' rule in reverse: you break it, you get paid for it. Aerospace giant Boeing received a no-bid contract worth nearly $16 million in stimulus money to clean up a California site it helped pollute. The facility, the Santa Susana Field Laboratory, was built in the 1940s, and has been used for engine testing and nuclear power work; Boeing has owned it since 1996. In 2007, local authorities fined Boeing $471,000 for dozens of pollution violations at the site, which poisoned wastewater and storm runoff that ended up in the Los Angeles River." ("Summertime Blues," Offices Of Sen. Tom Coburn And Sen. John McCain, 8/10)

*In Glendale, New Horizons Family Center Received A $131,000 Grant For The Construction Of A Low-Income Child Care Facility That Has Already Suffered Years Of Delays And Has Not Begun Construction. "Youth Center Awarded Grant May Not Get Built (Glendale, CA) - $131,000 … 'You're all going to be wearing hard hats in April,' Maria Rochart, executive director of New Horizons Family Center, declared in March about the impending construction on New Horizons Family Center's child-care facilities. Today, the project does not appear any closer to starting. Nearly a year ago, New Horizons was awarded $131,000 in grant funding for the construction of a new facility to care for low-income kids after school. According to the Glendale News-Press, 'Construction on New Horizons Family Center's long-awaited 'Children's Village Nuestra Casa' was to begin last spring after years of delays and hundreds of thousands in government funding. But months after the nonprofit's founder told city commissioners the project was about to break ground, the lot on the 1200 block of South Maryland Avenue sits unchanged.'"

Statewide Volunteer Chair: Join Us Today!

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Guest post by Chuck McDougald, Statewide Volunteer Chair, Carly for California

I’m excited to join Carly today in announcing the county and local chairs of the Carly for California grassroots leadership team. We have an impressive team of individuals who are dedicated to spreading Carly’s message and building support for her campaign. Up and down the state, our grassroots team is mobilizing our efforts to get Carly elected in November.

Carly believes that our Founding Fathers envisioned our nation to be lead by a citizen government—that’s what they meant when they said of, for and by the people. Carly’s real-world experience and understanding of what it takes to create a job stands in stark contrast with Boxer’s decades-long record of increasing spending and implementing onerous regulations that make it harder for small businesses to survive. It speaks volumes that Carly, who has never run for office, has a more vibrant and energized grassroots team than her opponent who has spent more time in office than most Californians have been alive.

Joining me in our grassroots leadership team are Statewide Volunteer Coordinator Evie Coss, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Richard Sherman, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Jalene Forbis, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Joel Strom, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Cathie Bennett Warner, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Luis Buhler and Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Michael Schwab. Together with our dedicated county and local chairs, we are committed to spreading Carly’s message of job creation, economic growth and fiscal responsibility to all of California’s voters.

With grassroots volunteer chairs representing every county in the state, now is the perfect time for you to sign up and join our team! Click here to sign up as a volunteer and take your government back, make it listen and make it work.

In Case You Missed It: Pat Buchanan, Chuck Todd Say Carly Can Win

Friday, July 30th, 2010

 

Pat Buchanan: “The governor’s race in California is a big one. Whitman’s got all that money, and she’s gonna be driving and Jerry Brown has slipped a bit. Or they are running about even I guess, if she runs  very strong. Boxer has never run real strong. I think there’s a real chance Carly Fiorina can win it.”

Chuck Todd: “Ok, let me underscore this. Barbara Boxer, the history of Barbara Boxer, in ’92 she got to run on Clinton and Diane Feinstein’s coat tails. In ’98, she ran on the Gray Davis landslide coat tails-remember he won in a landslide in ’98. In ’04 she had Kerry on the Presidential ballot, she has never, never have run when the top of the ticket, was, was, not strong and Jerry Brown may win, but he’s not gonna be strong. That’s the thing, because Meg Whitman is spending kagillions in here. So I think Boxer is in much bigger trouble than Patty Murray.

Carly Fiorina Brings Statewide Jobs Tour to Los Angeles

Friday, July 16th, 2010

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.

Carly Fiorina Launches Asian-American Coalition, Names Statewide and Regional Leadership Chairs

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Board of Equalization Member Michelle Steel, Assemblyman Van Tran and Former Assemblyman Alan Nakanishi Among Honorary Chairs Named

SACRAMENTO, CA - During a campaign swing through Sacramento, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today met with a group of Asian small-business owners at Alliance Auto Body, where she launched Asian Americans for Carly and named Ann Hoang Fogliani statewide coalition chair.

“California is a great state, and I want my children to have access to the same opportunities I have had the fortune to enjoy,” said Hoang Fogliani. “Carly has lived the American dream, and she knows what it will take to create jobs and build a strong economy today and for future generations, and that’s the reason I am proud to join her campaign team today. With the help of the Asian community in California, I am certain we will defeat Barbara Boxer this November.”

Fogliani has been active in Republican politics for many years and currently serves as Director of Business Operations for Fogliani Strategies, a premier GOP consulting firm, where she specializes in ethnic coalitions. She recently served as Campaign Manager for Assemblyman Bill Berryhill and Executive Director of the Stanislaus County Republican Party. Fogliani is currently on the Board of Directors for Asian Pacific Americans for Political Action and for the Asian Americans for Good Government PAC.

“The American dream I have lived is both precious and perishable. And I’m concerned that the path of more regulation, higher taxes and bigger government Washington has put us on is leading our nation in the wrong direction,” said Fiorina. “Over the course of her 28 years in Washington, Barbara Boxer has demonstrated her unwillingness to support policies that will help us create jobs and grow our economy, and that’s why she must be replaced this fall.”

Also named today were Northern California Chair Tido Hoang, Central Valley Chair Les Fong, Southern California Chair Joe Long and Honorary Chairs Board of Equalization Member Michelle Steel, Assemblyman Van Tran, former Assemblyman Alan Nakanishi, Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Founder and Chairman C.C. Yin, Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen, Walnut Mayor Mary Su, Rosemead Mayor Pro Tem Steven Ly, Irvine City Councilman Steven Choi, Westminster City Councilman Andy Quach, Westminster City Councilman Tri Ta, Westminster City Councilman Tyler Diep, Diamond Bar City Councilwoman Ling-Ling Chang and former Diamond Bar Mayor Wen Chang.

SurveyUSA Poll Confirms Carly Fiorina in Strong Position to Defeat Barbara Boxer

Monday, July 12th, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA - Carly for California Deputy Campaign Manager for Communications Julie Soderlund today issued the following statement regarding the SurveyUSA poll released this afternoon showing that U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina leads Barbara Boxer 47 percent to 45 percent in a head-to-head matchup:

“Throughout her 28-year career in Washington, Barbara Boxer has consistently failed to deliver results for the people of California, and with unemployment at a sky-high 12.4 percent, Californians have clearly had enough. Today’s poll confirms that voters see right through Boxer’s Election Year rhetoric and are rejecting her empty promises, turning instead to support a common-sense problem-solver with a proven track record of creating jobs.

“Carly Fiorina is a true political outsider whose real-world experience and success in business presents voters with an unmistakable contrast to Boxer’s failed career in politics. Californians want a U.S. senator who will make the tough choices necessary to set our state and our nation on the path toward economic growth, something Barbara Boxer has repeatedly demonstrated she can’t – or won’t – do. That’s why we expect Boxer’s support to fall and Carly’s support to increase in the coming months.”

Last week, the Field Poll showed Fiorina and Boxer in a statistical tie and Boxer with the lowest job approval rating of her career.

  • Matthews: "After three terms in the U.S. Senate, she finds herself in a box.

(Joe Mathews, "Boxer In The Box," NBC LA's "Prop Zero" Blog, www.nbclosangeles.com, 7/9/10)

The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza: "Most worrisome for Boxer in the new poll is her job approval rating: 48 percent of likely voters polled said they disapprove of her performance, while 42 percent approve. That's the lowest rating Boxer has ever received in the 43 surveys since the Field Poll began testing her job approval. It's also the first time more voters disapprove of Boxer's performance than approve."

(Allysia Finley, "Shadow Boxer," The Wall Street Journal's "Political Diary," 7/8/10)

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich: "Most interesting upset? That's really a great question. I think it may be Carly Fiorina beating Boxer. … Because Boxer has always had an ability to come back and savage and distort her opponents. And I think that in Fiorina, she may have an opponent who is smart enough and disciplined enough that she can't do it. And if she can't, I think Boxer's probably gone."

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "Big trouble brewing for Senator Barbara Boxer out in California. Check out the latest Field Poll. Senator Boxer has just a three-point lead over Republican challenger Carly Fiorina. Just 47 to 44. Boxer's under 50 by the way. That's not a good number for re-elect. What's worse for her, she's about even in job approval." (MSNBC's "Hardball," 7/8/10)

Carly Fiorina Issues Statement Responding to President Obama’s Call for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today issued the following statement in response to President Obama's speech this morning in which he called for the passage of comprehensive immigration reform:

"While I agree with the President that legal immigration has made this country great and that our broken immigration system must be addressed, I fundamentally disagree with his 'boil the ocean' approach. It is a recipe for continued inaction on this issue. Instead, we must start solving this problem by focusing on our most pressing priorities. Those are to secure the border, to put into place a functional temporary worker program and to step up the enforcement of laws prohibiting the employment of illegal immigrants.

"It is also the height of hypocrisy for both President Obama and Barbara Boxer to call for comprehensive immigration reform when they have both personally helped kill bipartisan immigration reform in the past. This past record underscores the fact that today's speech is yet another Election Year ploy designed to shore up vulnerable career politicians like Barbara Boxer, rather than to forge any progress toward border security or reform.

"The President talked about accountability in his speech. It is true – more accountability is needed, and that starts with the federal government's being accountable for fulfilling its most basic responsibility to secure our border. It takes the commitment and the political will to get it done. Instead, with a call for comprehensive immigration reform in exchange for securing the border, the President is using the safety of this nation as a political bartering chip. It is cynical politics at its worst.

"The American people deserve a discussion on this issue that reaches beyond the typical Washington approach to big problems and instead focuses on effective problem solving. On this issue, that starts with a secure border and a temporary worker program that works. These are the priorities of the American people, and they must be the priorities of our leaders in Washington."

Senator Boxer And Then-Senator Obama Helped Kill Bipartisan Immigration Reform in 2007

In 2007, Senator Boxer Launched A "Direct Assault" On Bipartisan Immigration Reform. "BASH (voice over): The first direct assault on a bipartisan immigration proposal is being launched from the left. Democrats trying to torpedo a temporary worker program. SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D), CALIFORNIA: It is a pool of cheap labor at the expense of the American worker. It's as simple as that." ("Lou Dobbs Tonight," CNN, 5/22/07)

Senator Boxer Was "Troubled By The Inclusion Of A Guest Worker Program" In The Reform Bill. "But several Democratic senators have accused Cornyn and other conservative senators of offering poison pill amendments to kill the bill. And liberal senators also balked at a provision in the legislation that would create a guest worker program with no pathway to citizenship, as well as measures that would give visa preference to skilled, educated workers over family members. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., called the bill 'unworkable and unfair,' saying she's 'troubled by the inclusion of a guest worker program.'" (Gary Martin, "Bush Hasn't Given Up On Immigration Bill," San Antonio Express-News, 6/12/07)

Boxer Teamed Up With North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan To Insert A Poison Pill Amendment Killing The Guest Worker Program. "Dorgan and his cosponsor, California Democrat Barbara Boxer, said Democrats will offer several additional amendments aimed at modifying the guest worker program." (Michael Sandler, "Immigration Bill Clears First Hurdle In Senate," Congressional Quarterly, 5/22/07)

Dorgan's Amendment Passed 49-48 With Support From Both Boxer and Then-Senator Obama. (S.Amdt. 1316 to S.Amdt. 1150 to S. 1348, Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, YEAs 49 - NAYs 48, Boxer: YEA, Obama: YEA, 6/6/07)

In Voting For the Poison Pill, Then-Senator Obama Helped Kill The Bill. "Democrat Byron Dorgan, who seldom has tasted legislative success during 15 years in the Senate, scored a dubious victory last week. He was able to insert a poison pill in the immigration reform bill that aimed at emasculating the essential guest worker program. The 49-48 vote that passed Dorgan's amendment included surprising support from two prominent first-term senators: Jim DeMint, a conservative Republican from South Carolina, and Barack Obama, a Democratic presidential candidate from Illinois." (Robert Novak, "Tasting A Poison Pill," Chicago Sun-Times, 6/14/07)
