You deserve a government that actually does its job.

You pay your taxes and should receive quality services in return. But under Gavin Newsom, the government is failing at doing the very basics. Hundreds of thousands of Californians who desperately need unemployment benefits are stuck in a bureaucratic maze, while criminals were able to steal billions in taxpayer dollars through unemployment fraud. From widespread homelessness to problems at the DMV to sluggish distribution of COVID-19 vaccinations, there is a failure of leadership at the top.

As mayor, Kevin Faulconer focused on the basics, using technology and demanding results to make your experience with the government as fast, inexpensive, and painless as possible. He reduced outdoor homelessness by double-digits, repaired half of San Diego’s roads, and brought the government into the 21stcentury with award-winning services that let you go online to easily apply for a permit, report a pothole, request graffiti removal, get trash cleaned up, and more.

As governor, Kevin Faulconer will work to change the bureaucratic culture from “that’s impossible” to “let’s get it done.” He will conduct a top-to-bottom review of spending, cancel or fix programs that are not working, and hold departments accountable for results. He will engage
California’s brilliant technology entrepreneurs to help make your interactions with the government quick and easy. And he will never forget that you, the taxpayer, are the most important customer.
