General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
Bob Dutton and his family have lived in Rancho Cucamonga for 35 years and he has been a small business owner for 40 years.

His commitment to the Inland Empire began shortly after arriving in Southern California as he opened a real estate investment and management firm located in Rancho Cucamonga. In addition to running a small business and being a member of a number of professional organizations, Bob Dutton also made a commitment to giving back to the community, a value instilled in him by his father. He has served as president or board member for numerous community and civic organizations including the local Kiwanis Club, YMCA, Red Cross, the Chamber of Commerce and the Community Foundation. Bob also served as the coach/manager of his daughter’s fast-pitch softball team for 9 years. Dozens of girls from those teams received scholarships and went on to play college softball.

Bob Dutton won election to the Rancho Cucamonga City Council in 1998 and won re-election in 2000. Bob worked to improve public safety without raising taxes and led the fight to eliminate the city’s utility tax, which was abolished in 2001.

His experience as a local elected official and business owner led to his election to California’s 63rd State Assembly District in 2002. In 2004, Bob Dutton won election to the State Senate and represents portions of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties in the 31st Senate District. He won a second term in November 2008 when he captured nearly 60 percent of the vote.

Bob Dutton was unanimously selected Senate Republican Leader in early 2010. During the 2011-12 budget negotiations, Bob was able to unite the Senate Republican Caucus and not only held the line against tax increases, but his leadership resulted in taxes being lowered for California families. Reduced sales taxes, car taxes and personal income taxes saved the average California family hundreds of dollars a year.
