Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

My name is Gene Hernandez and I have dedicated my working career in public service. I have been responsible for multi-million dollar budgets and the law enforcement services and personnel for three communities: Chino, Orange and Fullerton. I am a strong proponent for public safety and keeping our crime rates the lowest in the State. I am a proven community leader who treats all people with dignity and respect.

Additional I stand for:

  • Fiscal discipline and taxpayer protections
  • Careful, managed growth
  • Transparent and accessible government that serves the people, not the other way around
  • Smaller, more efficient government...
  • And a firm believe that traditional core values need to be brought back to the for front of our communities decision making and policy making process.
