About California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger:
Governor Schwarzenegger's top priority is fulfilling his mandate from Californians to bring jobs back to the state and restore its prosperity. Since he has taken office, California has created more than 635,000 jobs and the unemployment rate has fallen from 6.8 to 4.9 percent. The Governor cut taxes by $4 billion and averted bankruptcy with measures that refinanced old debt and required the state to live within its means. Schwarzenegger also reformed the state's workers' compensation system that had the highest costs in the nation, saving billions of dollars that have been reinvested into the people and economy of California and creating a positive business environment for our state.
