Jay has a dynamic history in business and local government. He was elected to the Big Bear City Airport Board in 2005 and is now serving his second term as Mayor of Big Bear.
The Independent Voter PAC is supporting Jay's run for Assembly District 33 because he has committed himself to make government work for voters, regardless of party affiliation.
In addition to a proven record in local government, Jay built a successful career in technology. He founded his own video game development company, FarSight Studios, from his college dorm in 1988 and it has grown to support 25 employees.
Outside of business, he has volunteered with the Veteran’s Airlift Command and teaches as a flight instructor for the Young Eagles Program.
Jay Obernolte has demonstrated his commitments to the community instead of playing party politics. That is why he is the Independent Voter PAC's choice for California's Assembly District 33.
"It's clear from my experience in local government that many of our communities are getting shortchanged because of partisan politics." ~Jay Obernolte
