Summary

A termed-out Republican Assemblyman running for State Senate. Jones was one of the few members of the California legislature to make his association with the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council public.



Analysis

“Brian brought his conservative vision to Sacramento, where he served as a critical voice for reforming state government, lowering taxes, reducing the influence of labor unions, and improving California’s business climate.” Typical big business supporter. Poor marks on environment and civil rights.

Summary

Democrat and State Fire Captain Jeff Griffith wants to solve concerns raised by residents in San Diego’s inland region, including protecting residents from wildfires and the dangers posed by frequent intentional power outages. He says his opponent favors special interests over public health and safety.


Analysis

Jeff Griffith’s priorities include: “Enhance fire protection for all communities in San Diego County, ensuring quality and affordable health care, reduce student debt and increase trades education.” Not very much money, but seems like a decent man who truly wants to make changes.
