Ashley Swearengin will focus on enacting greater spending oversight, improving budget management, and enhancing California’s economic competitiveness.
Budget and Debt
As Controller, I will be an independent watchdog for California’s taxpayers, ensuring tax dollars are spent efficiently and effectively.
I’ll work to enact a fiscally conservative, comprehensive approach to the budget that pays down California’s ‘wall of debt’ without new taxes.
We need to consolidate agencies, simplify the tax code, and reduce the overall tax rate so that California can be competitive in attracting new businesses and jobs.
