“As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, I’ve spent most of my career helping families save for a rainy day, send their kids to college, and retire with dignity.

I’m also a local elected official who knows how to use commonsense leadership and work with people from all walks of life to get results.

As your Congressman I pledge to always do what is best for our district, not cater to special interests and fringe socialist interests.”

-Brian Maryott

SECURE THE BORDER

Illegal immigration is at an all-time high. Deadly drugs, including highly poisonous Fentanyl, are pouring across our southern border and tragically ending the lives of our young and vulnerable Americans.

Illegal immigration is at an all-time high. Deadly drugs, including highly poisonous Fentanyl, are pouring across our southern border and tragically ending the lives of our young and vulnerable Americans. Women and children are suffering at the hands of smugglers, and human trafficking is at an all-time high – with inhumane and deadly consequences. Borders that have effectively been opened have also allowed criminal gang members to bring a wave of crime into our communities. What have liberal Washington D.C. politicians done about it? They’ve eased restrictions and made it nearly impossible for our border patrol agents to do their job. Mike Levin has repeatedly opposed additional funding to secure the border, and he has stood silent while the Biden Administration has eschewed common sense solutions and invited chaos.

It is true that we are a country of immigrants – but we are also a country of laws. As your next Congressman, I will work to address this growing crisis by strengthening funding for border enforcement, allow border patrol agents to enforce the laws of our country, and support a massive federal effort to force China and Mexico to cease the manufacturing and distribution of poison to our kids.

Once our border is safe, secure, and manageable, I look forward to working on badly needed reform that expands opportunities for safe and legal immigration.

JOBS & THE ECONOMY

As your next Congressman, I will apply my financial expertise to stop the billions in harmful spending and work to pass smart legislation that helps reverse inflation, grow our economy, and provide economic opportunity for all.

Democrats in Washington continue to tell the American people that our jobs are back, our wages are up, and our economy is strong. But let me ask you this: do you feel more financially secure today than you did 2 years ago? How about 4 years ago, pre-covid? I have conversations every day in our communities, and the feedback I get points to the opposite. Our families and small business owners are feeling the squeeze of inflation, higher interest rates, higher gas and energy prices, and a greater level of uncertainty about their economic future.

I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, so I’m not afraid to talk hard numbers. It’s a fact that Americans are experiencing the largest increase in inflation in 40 years. This is just not acceptable. Our purchasing power is being watered down by the explosion in reckless spending coming from naïve Washington tax-and-spend liberals like Mike Levin. As your next Congressman, I will apply my financial expertise to stop the billions in harmful spending and work to pass smart legislation that helps reverse inflation, grow our economy, and provide economic opportunity for all.

EDUCATION, RIGHTS OF PARENTS

As a father, I’m troubled that our education system is straying so far from the basics. As your Congressman, I will fight against the divisive dogma of Critical Race Theory and its inclusion in our education curriculum.

There are a lot of challenges, opportunities, and issues that factor into the future of our great country. None is more important than the education of our children. As a father, I’m troubled that our education system is straying so far from the basics. As your Congressman, I will fight against the divisive dogma of Critical Race Theory and its inclusion in our education curriculum. This defeatist and poisonous agenda is harmful to every child – regardless of racial or ethnic background. Also damaging is the growing tendency for schools to aggressively insert themselves into the challenge of gender related issues. Let’s get back to basics and ask teachers to teach our children – and allow parents to raise them.

As your next Congressman, I will fight to reinvigorate our education system and incentivize schools who prioritize academic excellence. We know from history that competition makes everyone better, which is why I will fight for School Choice to provide more opportunities for parents and our children. Once public-school administrators realize that they must compete to attract parents and students, I am confident they will respond. There is no reason why more choices for parents should hurt our public schools. Quite the opposite!

SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS, SAFE COMMUNITIES

These foolish anti-police and so called ‘social justice reforms’ should stop now. We will never have peace of mind if we don’t feel safe. This starts with fully funding and supporting our police officers.

Never in modern history have we seen such an intense spike in crime of all types as we have over the last 18 months. Ever since hard left politicians cheered on the violent anti-police riots of 2020, publicly called for defunding policing, and got behind so-called progressive prosecutors with little regard for ordered liberty, we have seen a stunning increase in all criminal activity. Mike Levin has fallen hook, line, and sinker, for this dangerous agenda. He accepted money from anti-law enforcement groups, supported a far-left District Attorney to represent us, and even called for ‘reimagining’ policing.

These foolish anti-police and so called ‘social justice reforms’ should stop now. We will never have peace of mind if we don’t feel safe. This starts with fully funding and supporting our police officers. We need to be able to hire the best people, train them throughout their careers, and set high expectations of conduct. That takes more funding, not less. As your next Congressman, I will support our brave law enforcement officers. I will fight to end the proliferation of poisonous drugs that are too often destroying the lives of our young people and slowly debilitating so many of our homeless population. I will support stiff sentencing for career criminals and end the current trend of prioritizing the wishes of lawbreakers over the basic rights of the communities they are preying on. Enough is enough.

A SECURE AMERICA

We will have to fully and consistently fund our military to maintain our technological superiority in warfare weaponry, and protect funding uncertainty by ending budget sequestration.

It is time for Congress to stand for a firm, bold, and consistent foreign policy. There is a growing threat from anti-Democratic and revisionist agendas amongst our enemies and how we respond in the years ahead will be critical in securing liberty at home and across the globe. We will have to fully and consistently fund our military to maintain our technological superiority in warfare weaponry, and protect funding uncertainty by ending budget sequestration.

I will work towards reestablishing American influence in international institutions, including the United Nations Security Council and the World Trade Organization. As your Congressman, I will vote to end China’s Most Favored Nation status so that we can hold the leadership of the China Communist Party accountable for their unfair trade practices and their horrific human rights abuses. I will fully support American diplomacy that is resolute in its adherence to democratic values.

TERM LIMITS

I will support legislation to stop career politicians from a lifetime in office so that we as Americans and Californians, are better represented.
term-limits

The Founding Fathers never intended politics to be a career. Serving your community in Washington should be just that: service. Unfortunately, too many elected leaders work their whole lifetimes in Congress where they become out of touch with the needs of their district and fall prey to special interests. I feel strongly that we need better accountability from our leaders, starting right here in CA-49. I’ve signed the Term Limit Pledge, and as your next Congressman, I will support legislation to stop career politicians from a lifetime in office so that we as Americans and Californians, are better represented. Government has become an industry with all kinds of ways to dazzle and entertain us, but it rarely focuses on what it is supposed to do: produce results.

Without fanfare and silly drama, Congress should get about the business of producing tangible results for current and future generations. The stakes are high, and a sense of urgency amongst our elected leaders can only help. It’s time to limit the nonsense, and limit the terms!
