Scott Wilk 2020 California State Senator Candidate, California State Senate (2016-2020), California State Assembly District 38 (2012-2016). Scott Wilk believes that having a good education system is a pathway for a good economy. The primary campaign promises that Wilk will get California students the modern, safe, and well-organized classrooms they deserve. He wants to protect social security benefits for 60-year-olds and above. He believes that people who are 60 and above are near retirement and expecting Social Security earnings, which makes them more likely to need protection.

He will help people get back to work after the pandemic and will put a stop to bad policies that put businesses down as well as the economy.

Rick Herrick 2020 State Assembly Candidate and Mayor of Big Bear Lake (2006-2020). Herrick believes in strong republic leadership. He trusts that common sense, accountability, and transparency will get California on the right track. He also stands for public safety; he does not oppose defunding police and he trusts that more well-trained police means more safety in society. His primary campaign promises that Herrick will prioritize lowering taxes, and fees of housing, gas, food, and other things that are supposed to be affordable. He thinks that California needs to be seen as a place of affordability, but to do that Herrick reckons California will need to go back to its basics such as keeping housing affordable and reducing homelessness. One important issue he supports is fixing the jobs and the economy. His first step in doing so is providing unemployment benefits faster. His next step will be helping small businesses reopen and making it safe and easy to do so. He also believes that eliminating unfair government regulations will get more job availability and make the economy grow stronger. Jan Jernigan Insurance Agency is a supporter of Herrick. *NO PICTURE AVAILABLE*
