A Tech Democrat Talks


Today’s eWeek column is an interview with John Kerry California Finance Chairman Mark Gorenberg.
I called him up and asked to make the case for tech folks to vote for his candidate. I wasn’t so much interested in foreign policy – not for this interview – as I was in talking about the business environment. The idea was to talk past the sound-bite stuff about stock options and outsourcing and get some sense of why guy like Gorenberg – well-off, tech savvy, once a Republican – find Kerry’s candidacy attractive.
The short answer: some personal sacrifice (higher taxes) is worth a long-term pay-off (a more profitable business environment). The Bush folks – I’m going to do an interview with a Gorenberg peer next week – say something similar, of course, saying that cuts put money in the hands of folks like Gorenberg who make investments.
