The water we drink & the air we breathe hang in the balance
So deep does the California Dream run in the history and character of our state that it can feel as enduring as our primeval forests or our majestic mountain ranges. But there is nothing inevitable about it. Every dream depends on the dreamers.
It is up to us to renew the California Dream for a new generation. And now more than ever, it is up to us to defend it.
California has always helped write America's future. And we know the decisions we make would be important at any time.
But what we do today is even more consequential, because of what's happening in our country.
People's lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe--they all hang in the balance. The country is watching us. The world is waiting
on us. The future depends on us. And we will seize this moment.
We will prepare for uncertain times ahead. We will be prudent stewards of taxpayer dollars, pay down debt, and meet our future obligations. But let me be clear: we will be bold.

Pro-active on energy and resource management
As a member of the State Lands Commission, Gavin has worked hard to ensure that California is addressing its nuclear and clean energy future through the development of its first strategic plan in over 18 years.
It sets the highest levels of safety and preservation for California's resources under its jurisdiction, and ensures that California's economic growth is balanced with smart, future-oriented management of our state's natural resources.
