Well, I didn't make it through the primaries, but want to send a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped me with the campaign and everyone who voted for me.
I am now joining with community leaders across Marin and Sonoma to endorse Marc Levine. Mark knows our district. He knows how to get results. He is the representative we need to shake up Sacramento and represent our communities with integrity. I ran in the primary to give voice to important issues not being addressed in Sacramento. Marc is the right person to carry on this fight to November and beyond.

One of the things that has shocked me the most about being a candidate is how important your vote actually is. It may not make a huge deal on a national level, but your vote will change the lives of everyone in your area and throughout California when it comes to education, pension reform, job creation and protecting the environment. You do count and you do make a difference. Thank you for voting.

As a doctor I see can see that California is in pain. It’s time to help California get out of pain. We have too many serious problems that cannot be put off any longer. Second, I’m tired of mediocre professional politicians putting whatever party they belong to and special interest groups ahead of the people who put them into office. As your state assemblyman my only goal is to improve the lives of all the people in our area and in California.
By voting for me you are saying that the people of Sonoma and Marin counties are much more important than the professional politicians in Sacramento. Vote for Dr. H. Christian Gunderson for Assembly. Thank you.

The biggest problem with Sacramento is that the professional politicians are afraid to create the change that is so desperately needed. Marin and Sonoma counties have an 86% approval rate while Sacramento only has a 19% approval. The simple question is who has a better vision for our future; the people of our area or the professional politicians from Sacramento? Do you want mediocrity in your politicians or do you want somebody who will put your needs and wants first?

Over the last seven months I've been following and commenting on important issues in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat and Marin Independent Journal online. I did this not only to learn about many of the needs of the people in our area, but also to be available for anyone who had a question to ask me.
If you have any questions about me or my position on the issues, please feel free to comment to this post (click the orange comment button below), or check the Contact Information tab at the top of the website for other ways to reach me.

One of the first things I did after I decided to run for state assembly was to go out and talk to our community leaders. I visited with county and city administrators, police chiefs, sheriffs and fire chiefs, school superintendents and local farm bureaus. All too often politicians make bills and decisions without talking to those who are most affected by their actions. I believe that by including those who are experts in their fields in the bill making process, we get better representation and better laws.
The two messages I heard from everyone I talked to was to include them into the process and stop creating unfunded mandates (requirements that take time and resources, but have zero funding).
