It's no secret that I'm a bail bondsmen. It's been my career of choice for past 7 years; I've helped over hundreds women and men get into rehabs, solely support my mother and sister through my bail bondsman income, and have established a network of friends and family who I love and would do anything to stand up for. But make no mistake, It's not the ONLY reason I'm running. Bail Reform is needed, and I agree 100% with my opponent Bob Hertzberg. It NEEDS REFORM. Just not total elimination, bail agents (The 14,000 Californians) provide a meaningful service, with $0 in tax payers money; at a small fraction of the bail amount, we hold criminals accountable, and make sure they show up to court. It's true, if you're too poor to afford bail there are very little to no other options. We need reform, and I understand that. But, New Jersey has tried a Hertzberg branded Bail Reform, and it's failed horribly.. Crime sky-rocketed, just like Californians has in the past few years. That's just the problem with our democratic leadership, and men like Bob Hertzberg; They refuse to meet in the middle, not with my industry, not with a clean planet, not with taxes, and not with accountability. I promise to bring back REAL representation to our Valleys State Senate.... That's why I'm running
Hello my name is Roger Sayegh, having lived in San Fernando Valley for over 7 years, I've learned a lot. Not only about the immigrant communities that make up our land, but I heard their voices. A silent majority of immigrants live here, people who work long hours, often times taking up more than one job! Not for themselves, but for a better life for their children.
These mothers and fathers left their home countries to a land where they were promised a better education, safer streets, smart legislation, and an accepting community. They sacrificed years of their lives, and now wake up to a community with outrageous homeless rates, higher taxes, a degrading schooling system, and crime rates that just shouldn't be acceptable.
Frankly, we are letting District 18 down. The experienced politicians no longer have our best interests at heart.
I believe that by empowering Districts children, we will make California Affordable, we will make California Safe, and we will bring back the American Dream!
In the coming months during my Campaign I'm going to focus hard on a few key topics, like tax breaks for start up businesses in their first two years, how we plan to be smart on crime, not tough.. (Tough hasn't worked). Empowerment of The Strong Immigrant community that makes up District 18, and STRONG Accountability with our hard earned tax money.
