As a veteran, I encourage businesses to voluntarily adopt strong pro-veteran hiring practices and provide veteran discounts. I believe this is best accomplished through visibility: by facilitating the creation of a business rating system to be administered by veterans’ organizations, not by the government.
I want to increase public knowledge and understanding of the new “veteran” designation on the California driver’s license. This will help businesses identify veterans, and veterans identify themselves to businesses. We need to know who our servicemen and women are.
As a veteran and doctor, I’m going to insist that veterans in this state have great healthcare, good jobs, and safe affordable housing
