Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Desde el momento de la concepción hasta la muerte natural, todo ser humano tiene derecho a protección conforme a la ley, a un trato justo y a una contraprestación equitativa.
  • Apoyar las políticas económicas que expanden las oportunidades para los pobres, y reconstruir y apoyar una clase media vibrante, cuya erosión es una amenaza fundamental para nuestra democracia.
  • Trabajar para corregir los déficits ecológicos del pasado, actuar como administradores responsables en el presente y garantizar a futuras generaciones un planeta que sea saludable y próspero.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KQED and League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (5)

There is a shortage of affordable housing in California. How would you approach addressing California’s housing crisis? Please include specific proposals.
Respuesta de Desmond Silveira:

The greatest housing shortages in the state exist in locations that have rent control.  Though this is a local decision, as it should be, it greatly exacerbates the problem of housing availablity in the communities that adopt it.  At the state level, I would work toward making housing more affordable by encouraging more housing developments, thus increasing the supply, and decreasing the market rate.

Question 2

California has some of the richest people in the country and some of the poorest. What would you do to reduce income inequality in California?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
Question 3

Currently there isn't enough money in the state retirement system to pay for all the benefits promised to government workers. What would you do as Governor to address the state’s unfunded pension liability?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
How would you describe your feelings about charter schools? Are you in favor of any changes in the way the state governs charter schools?
Respuesta de Desmond Silveira:

I support the right of families to choose the best methods for educating their children, be they public, charter, private, parochial or home-based education.

California and the federal government have disagreed about enforcement of immigration laws. Do you support California’s current ‘Sanctuary State’ law? If not, why not? Are there additional strategies that you would pursue as Governor?
Respuesta de Desmond Silveira:

I support a generous policy of welcoming immigrants fleeing persecution and violent conflict within their countries of origin, including a call for the United States to fulfill its obligations under international law in regards to the treatment of refugees and those fleeing inhumane conditions.  I support providing safety and opportunity for all immigrants who currently reside within California, including equal access to driving privileges and higher education.

I support the santuarty state status of California, because the state and local governments have the right to make their own decisions in regard to resource expenditure when it comes to immigration enforcement.  It doesn't make sense for the state to spend the level of resources that the federal government requests of us, especially when immigrants are being unfairly blamed as a scapegoat for society's problems.  However, though I think it's economically unwise, I do fully support the rights of local governments to opt out of the santuary status.
