Jay’s record in Sacramento is one of getting results done. Jay has passed more legislation than any other current legislator in the Inland Empire. Using his background as a tech entrepreneur he has passed legislation making government more efficient and transparent using technology, such as allowing our local law enforcement officers to get electronic signatures for search warrants to keep us safe. Jay has also been a leading advocate for taxpayers in Sacramento, he holds a lifetime 100% voting record with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and has helped defeat over $300 billion in harmful tax increases, including a $220 million tax hike on drinking water.
Jay understands the challenges and opportunities our district has. He wants to take his record of results to Washington DC and improve the quality of life for all residents of the 8th Congressional District.

On the Issues
Stop Wasteful Spending and Balance the Budget
In Sacramento Jay voted to audit the wasteful High Speed Rail Project and the DMV. Shining a light on their failures and helping end the bullet train to nowhere, saving taxpayers billions. In Congress he will be a voice to reign in federal spending and pass a balanced budget that does not create more debt for our future generations.
Keep our Promise to our Veterans
Jay Obernolte has been a strong supporter of Veterans both as an elected official and as a private Citizen. Jay volunteers with the Veterans Airlift Command, providing transportation to injured or disabled veterans to receive needed care. He has also hosted an annual Free Tax Preparation for Veterans Event, helping local veterans navigate to complex tax code and saving them tens of thousands of dollars. In Congress he will hold the VA accountable and make sure veterans receive the necessary care they deserve.
Create More Livable Wage Jobs
Jay has owned his software development company for over 2 decades and he has created hundreds of jobs since he started it. Jay knows what is needed to allow businesses to create livable wage jobs. That is why he consistently voted against overly burdensome regulations in Sacramento and would work to cut regulations in Washington DC. Jay has also voted to invest millions into career technical education, which provides pathways to careers that pay living wages. He knows by training our students skills today, they will earn the jobs of tomorrow. He will do the same as our Congressman.
Secure our Borders and Ports of Entry
In order to be safe and prosperous a nation must be secure. That is why Jay voted against the Sanctuary State law and other laws that allow violent criminals to be released into our communities. As our representative Jay will work to provide adequate funding to secure our borders and ports of entry, and crack down on human trafficking, drug trafficking and illegal entries.
Strengthen the Middle Class
In Sacramento Jay helped defeat numerous attempts to weaken our middle class including: attempts to weaken Prop 13, $300 billion in tax increases, even attempts to tax our drinking water by $220 million. As our Congressman Jay will work to lessen the burden on the middle class by opposing efforts to raise their taxes by trillions and he will work to make the middle class tax cuts permanent so every American can afford to live the American Dream.
