…he started his own small business, providing solutions to his customer’s manufacturing problems. Having twenty years’ experience on the front lines of manufacturing, Tim brings a unique understanding of the problems facing one of the most important sectors in our economy.
So far so good. But wait a minute…
In 2005, Tim answered the call of his country, and joined the fight to secure our borders. As the founder of the largest Minuteman chapter in California, he leveraged the media to bring national attention to the Federal government’s failure to enforce the border.
In the Legislature, Tim has earned the reputation of a conservative who holds steadfast to his principles: unleashing free enterprise, defending liberty, restricting government regulation, and upholding the constitution.
In addition, Tim led the fight to repeal AB 131, the California Dream Act, which provides illegal immigrants with college scholarships funded with taxpayer dollars. Tim traveled throughout the state, speaking directly with voters about the issue and received strong grassroots support. Overall, the statewide effort included over 10,000 volunteers and collected 450,000 signatures.
