Marine Corps Veteran Enters District 9 Assembly Race

Rick stated that, as a public school educator serving in the Assembly, he will work to ensure that every child has equal access to educational opportunities and that each student graduates from high school.
As our Assemblyman, Rick said one of his goals is to expand job training opportunities for the unemployed and underemployed as well as end all for state employees and restore the 14% reduction in state workers pay: "I do not believe the state budget should be balanced on the backs of state employees." Moreover, Rick said that he will "introduce employer friendly deregulation of the current legislative entanglements that hamper businesses from prospering and creating jobs."
