 Notable Quotes By Christy Smith      

"California can’t tax it’s way out of our current challenges. We must continue to pursue economic growth." 


"Small businesses are the backbone of the California economy. We should empower them to hire, train, and innovate." 


"Job training and small business development are critical to providing economic opportunity."

"With  so  much  noise  and  rhetoric  on  TV,  people are sick  of  hearing  about  Donald  Trump, they  want  to  know  what  we’ll  do  for  them.”

“The  best  thing  we  can  do  in  response to Donald  Trump  is what  he won’t do:  Deliver  real  meaningful change  for  our  community.”

"We need to stand up to Donald Trump in a thoughtful, substantive way that delivers real results for the people of our community. In the State Assembly, I'll do just that." 

"California can lead the way to stand up against Trump by delivering on issues that matter to working families." 

"We need to work together to reduce emergency response times, and support our first responders."  

"If we invest in our children's education today, we'll have a stronger community tomorrow. I am committed to strengthening our public schools to give every student a fair shot at success." 

"I'll work to make healthcare affordable and accessible." 

“Protecting our community’s seniors is one of my top priorities.”

"From my family to yours, we’re all in this together. That’s why in the Assembly, I’ll fight for clean air and healthy neighborhoods."

"I’ll stand up for women by fighting for affordable and accessible women’s health care."
