Steve's Candidate Statement:
Senator Steve Glazer is the legislature’s toughest fiscal watchdog.
On the Senate Budget Committee and the Legislative Audit Committee, he demonstrated integrity, independence, and the courage to stand up to special interests.
Senator Glazer took on the gun lobby, writing legislation that closed the assault weapons loophole. He fought big finance companies to win the nation’s first Truth-In-Lending Law protecting small business. He held PG&E accountable for starting wildfires and went toe-to-toe with Big Tobacco to ban products targeting our children. When the Bay Area’s transit system (BART) lurched out of control, Senator Glazer successfully fought to create an independent Inspector General to hold the system accountable.
As Controller, Senator Glazer will be a fair, unbiased and unflinching advocate to ensure that the people of California get their money’s worth from our government.
He will audit the billions California has spent on homelessness to find out where the money has gone and how to make our dollars work more effectively. He will ensure corporations pay the taxes they owe and protect pension funds and the retirement security they provide for millions of workers.
Senator Glazer will even audit the politicians themselves – their travel and expense accounts.
A lifelong environmental champion, Senator Glazer will protect our public trust lands and beaches.
He doesn’t accept gifts or travel from special interests. His record speaks for itself. He’s the one candidate for Controller we can trust to look out for us.
Please vote: Senator Steve Glazer for Controller.
