by Roger Riffenburgh

After a successful engineering career and experience as an entrepreneur helping others fix problems, Tim Dec decided to run for the State Assembly’s 23rd District to fix problems in Sacramento.

“As we work to resolve critical issues, we must reject the toxic political tone that has become increasingly harsh in this state and the nation. Californians are fed-up with the constant finger-pointing and labeling that has become the norm. We need to focus on problem-solving, not posturing,” says Dec.

The new Assembly District 23 includes the south Peninsula cities around Palo Alto and Mountain View plus Campbell and Saratoga, and the entire San Mateo County coast. (See the map.)    . . .  read more
