With Controller Chiang in San Diego, February 2012
"Controller John Chiang is someone I admire," said Headington. "He is an honest and passionate public servant putting what's best for California ahead of politics. This is the kind of leadership we need more of in Sacramento."
Besides job creation, the issue that comes up the most during Headington's conversations with voters is the concern over California's budget deficit and how it will impact the 38th Assembly District.
"Tackling the state's ongoing budget debacle is going to take a painfully honest commitment from legislators representing both parties to get the job done. John Chiang is that rare breed of officeholder who has stood firm when pressure mounted to support the political establishment."
Headington also challenged his opponent, Scott Wilk, to join him in pledging to reject being provided with a state-owned vehicle.
"I already own a car that runs fine," said Headington. "Californians are hurting, and legislators should do all they can to tighten their belts and get a taste of what life is like for millions of Californians struggling to survive a rough economy."
