My name is Fred Simon and I am a trauma surgeon who has served our San Diego community for nearly 25 years. Throughout my professional career I have had the opportunity to work with and care for a diverse group people from every background and neighborhood in San Diego.
If you are anything like me you are deeply worried about the direction our country is headed. My concerns have led me to make a decision to run for the United States Congress in California’s 52nd district. I am not a career politician but my concerns and my passion for finding solutions to our many challenges has led me to this decision to bring my experience and leadership to Washington.
As parents of three young children, my wife and I are acutely aware of the urgency in solving our nation’s greatest issues so that future generations will inherit a country without crushing debt and where hard work, perseverance and personal responsibility are still rewarded.
Obamacare is a debacle. As a physician I have unique insight and first-hand knowledge of this failed policy. It is unsustainable in the long term and it has left many of us paying more money for insurance coverage, often without being able to keep the doctors that our own families have built relationships with over the years. The policy needs to be reformed and my plan is a targeted attack on its most dysfunctional parts. Obamacare is but one of many examples of our government not working for us.
We don’t need more government, we need better governing!
As a nation, we need to look critically at our education system and creating opportunities for jobs for our young people in a competitive global economy. As a product of public schools I understand the importance of this challenge and the value in giving local agencies the freedom to allocate their resources to reflect their own values.
Please take a minute and explore my website to let me know your concerns and ask me questions about my plan for a better America. Join me in building a brighter future for the next generations of Americans!
