Phil Angelides (D)
on Economic Opportunity
"I see a California future where we nourish economic opportunity — by helping the small businessman in an inner-city neighborhood; by supporting scientific research...and by putting this state in the vanguard of emerging industries such as alternative energy."
"Reducing our dependence on oil, giving Californians more energy choices and protecting our coastline are essential to preserving our state's natural treasures and strengthening our economy for future generations."
Arnold Schwarzenegger (R)
on the Economy
"...The best way to increase revenues for the state is through economic growth and expansion, not by increasing taxes on families and businesses."
"I intend to show the world that economic growth and the environment can coexist. And if you want to see it, then come to California."
Jerry Brown (D)
"Brown made the Port of Oakland the first major container port in the United States to have completely installed Radiation Portal monitors that screen every container from a foreign country for dangerous materials."
Chuck Poochigian (R)
on Public Safety
"Senator Poochigian...authored law that made permanent the COPS program to put more law enforcement officers on the street."
