Why am I the “Cali Bear”? Because it’s big, bold, strong, magnificent and free like the America I used to know and love, it’s like our state, it’s like our community, it’s like our families, and it’s just like you!  But, it needs freedom, liberty, everything the Constitution and God provide for you! - Not the government.

My name is Jeffrey D, Burum, "The Cali Bear," and I'm committed to representing YOU, the tax payers and citizens of our great district. In California, we have witnessed the size of government and corruption reach a critical level. The time is now to reform healthcare, taxes, decrease the budget, promote local businesses and protect our citizens. As President Reagan said, "Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem." I took the Oath when I was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant to defend this country and that hasn’t stopped.  Who else understands all of these issues?  It’s clear our current representation does not.

If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference-- for our families, our veterans, and our country.​​
