What Kind of Democrat Am I?

Karina Onofre a JFK Democrat

I’m candidate for California State Assembly 74th District. I run to represent all the residents of Irvine, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa in Sacramento. A question I’ve heard is why I became a Democrat. People ask if I’m a “real” Democrat, or simply a woman who left the Republican Party. I want you to know–here and now–I’m a true Democrat, and represent Democrat Party ideas. If I were to pick the Democrat who best embodies my ideas, it is President John F. Kennedy. Last year marked 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination; many people stopped to remember much about his life, and asked who he really was.

Like the real JFK, I’m a fiscal conservative. As an elected State Assembly Member, I’ll work to restrain State spending. Unlike my big-government spending Democrat opponent, I plan to emphasize tax cuts for businesses, which can become California’s engines for job growth. I believe these tax cuts can pay for themselves by increasing government revenue, generated from new jobs, new companies, and new prosperity for California. Like the real JFK, I’m a Christian, and devout Catholic. My faith is very important to me and my family, who came to this country from Mexico. Asked if religion would compromise his responsibilities, Kennedy addressed this issue openly and directly, so no voters would have concerns about his faith. I too, will answer any questions from any voter about me or my background, and promise to tell the truth. Another question asked me is about my youth. I admit, of five Assembly District 74 candidates, I’m the youngest.

Like the real JFK, who was youngest President ever elected, I’ll bring my enthusiasm, energy, hard work and inspiration to this job. Sacramento needs my youthful enthusiasm! Sacramento needs my youthful energy! Sacramento needs my youthful hard work! Sacramento needs my youthful inspiration! And I promise to work for you! President Kennedy promised America he would “get the country moving again.” This is my promise: I’ll get Sacramento moving! Kennedy said America stood, “on the edge of a New Frontier of unknown opportunities and perils—a frontier of unfilled hopes and threats.”

Like Kennedy, I believe we must make the most of our unanswered future, so California can be the best State in the U.S. Like President Kennedy, I have Big Dreams. JFK wanted the United States to be first country to land a man on the moon. He did this not to spend money on wasteful government programs, but believed it was important to show everyone who was first. I want a California where we will again be first! First in job growth! First in education! First in equality and opportunity for all! So, when people ask if I’m a “real” Democrat, I tell them, “I’m a JFK Democrat!” And you should be one, too!

Vote Karina Onofre for California State Assembly 74th District!
