Protect Silicon Valley Companies

The California exodus is real! It is not just California residents, in 2018 and 2019, 660 California-based companies relocated their 765 facilities to other states. Yet, many of our local representatives are pushing for higher corporate taxes at both the state and federal level. Our Silicon Valley companies are being squeezed by onerous taxes and regulations. We need to protect the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Today historic low unemployment number 3.4% and historic high Dow Jones Industrial average 2800+   Silicon Valley companies are innovating, hiring, competitive and helping mankind. We need to give more incentives to corporates and support them to continue their path by keeping low taxes and low regulation

Give working families a break

As a husband and father, I know the Bay Area is an expensive place to live. In 2017, Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It was a good start, yet we need to do more. I support repealing the $10,000 cap on the state and local deduction (SALT), and simplifying the tax code so working families don’t get squeezed at tax time. I like to repeal federal tax limitation on maximum interest deduction as well, to promote American dream to own house

No Discrimination at workplace and Equal Right for Women

In Silicon Valley, we have multicultural society. I like to prevent Discrimination against any individual or group and vote for equal work right for women. Company performance goes down, hurt growth and impact people, which disturb their lives.  When women are discriminated against, it disturb families, children and hurts social values. In all cases, people goes through stress when they are discriminated and it impacts their lives and it hurts our economy. Especially for foreign companies, there is limited control and structure setup today, where they do wrong things and get away. I like to work to fix this

Create better educational opportunities for our children

Politicians see our schools as social engineering laboratories as opposed to educational institutions. We need to empower school boards to make local decisions and give families the opportunity to choose better performing schools. We also need to invest in vocational education, so our students are not only learning the fundamentals, they are learning a trade. We need to increase teacher’s pay to compensate them for their work and bring it to corporate level. No for Affirmative actions during college admission. I like every children to compete and get admitted in colleges based on Merit

Support our Immigrant Community

Our immigration system must be reformed. Too often, law-aiding immigrants wait over a decade to receive their green card. We need an immigration system that promotes hardworking contributors and prioritizes reuniting families. We must also step up enforcement on those that commit violent crimes. I support securing our border, while expediting citizenship for law abiding, tax paying immigrants. American deserves the best immigrants to keep its leadership in the world. It should remove country quota and accept people based purely on merit

Pass Real Healthcare Reform

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), healthcare for most families has become less affordable. In fact, for many families, their annual healthcare costs are their biggest. We need to end the one-size-fits-all requirement and allow for plans that fit the person or family. We also need to reform the ACA, while ensuring those with pre-existing conditions are protected. We need to create Healthcare system which is highly efficient, don’t increase taxes on corporate & people, help innovate new medicines & treatment process, and low cost


California Issue

Help our homeless

California’s skyrocketing housing costs and lack of investment in mental health services, has made California the homeless capital of the United States. 49% of our nation’s unhoused homeless live in California. We are in a state of emergency. If the state is unable to solve the problem, the federal government will have to step in. This problem cannot be solved municipality-to- municipality, it needs to be solved regionally. We need to coordinate shelters and service centers, while investing in drug and mental health services. We need to assist our homeless population; however, their rights do not supersede those that work, shop and live in our communities.

Alleviate Bay Area Traffic Congestion

Let’s face it. Hours spent in traffic steals time from our families. Commuting in the Bay Area has become a mind-numbing experience, with many commuters spending up to four hours a day in traffic. The Trump administration has an ambitious infrastructure plan to rebuild roads the State of California has neglected, while creating thousand of new jobs. Traffic is not a partisan issue; it affects us all the same. We must be willing to work across party lines to get it addressed.

Housing & Expand Prop 13

We know housing crunch in bay area. We need to be more efficient, economical and creative in permit issuance, to make life easier for people who like to build. I strongly support Prop 13, at same time support expanding Prop 13, so people can move without increase in property taxes, which will generate more revenue and jobs for real estate people, banks and everyone involve in process. This makes our economy stronger and people can live in desirable place

About Ritesh Tandon

Indian American engineer and businessman

My grandfather Kanhaiyalal Tandon, fought for the independence of India.  Because of his experience, I grew up with an appreciation for the freedom we had. Too often, politicians take for granted the freedom we have here in America. They have no historical context and do not realize the gift that our forefathers gave us. As your Congressman, I will never forget the gift of liberty, nor will I eschew my role as your public servant. I would be honored to serve this community in Congress and proud to fight for you in Washington, D.C.
