From candidate's GetEnergized.com endless rant:
"...against increase salaries of Commissioner of BOLI, Attorney General and many other state employees because our nation is in bid(sic) debt...."
"...No one state government employees (sic) may have salary higher than $85,000..."
"...will enforce all laws regulating the employment of adults and minors, protection amployees (sic) and employers from violation of laws, and conduct claims investigations of violation of civil and human rights and discrimination...."

"...prevent violations labor rules and honest investigate Complaints."
"...I do NOT accept money from no one..."
"...Organize in order to bring more immigrants to work with request of employers..."
"...Hire people on merit basis, but hire US Citizens first..."
"...Make health care, insurance and sick days affordable for all citizens..."

MY FIRST IMPRESSION: Voting for Avakian who is basically running unopposed. Goberman is a stereotypical perennial candidate who constantly appears on the ballot to express his rants.
