Alex Glew Ph.D. for CA Assembly District 24

California Born and Raised


Portrait of Alex Glew

Candidate Statement

I spent my career practicing engineering, pragmatically solving problems, meeting budgets and schedules, working with teams, and running a business. Now, I want to solve problems in Sacramento in a balanced and reasonable manner. It is time to end the Democratic supermajority’s ability to tax at will and increase spending without restraint.

We must resolve the $Trillion unfunded pension liability with creative solutions, as have the Feds and other states.  The increasing cost of pensions eats the budgets of our cities, counties, and state.

Our taxes are excessive. I will defend Prop 13, support the gas tax repeal, and oppose the high-speed rail debacle and the state’s ability to mandate 90ft buildings near your home. The recent great economy provides plenty of revenue without more taxes if we resolve the pension issue. I will work to improve California’s business climate to sustain our prosperity, create jobs and alleviate poverty, the biggest cause of crime.

I was raised in San Mateo County and live in Santa Clara County. I earned a B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from UC Berkeley.  Then I worked 10 years at a Fortune 500 tech company. Next, I attended Stanford for a M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science while starting an engineering firm in Mountain View, which I have run for 20 years.  See www.glew2018.com.

I ask for your support to win back the 24thAssembly District for the people who live here. Together we’ll fight back against the failed policies of Sacramento.
