Preguntas y Respuestas

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

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Michael "Mike" Worley:

There is no one size fits all solution. Providing Incentives for Density near Transit Stops is a positive idea. Another would be to change the way Developer Fees are charged - from by the unit to by the acre.

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Michael "Mike" Worley:

I think you have to treat people as people & give them a fair hearing. You also can't be afraid to disagree politely with ideas you oppose. You have to avoid speaking in Slogans or Cliches & encourage others to do the same. You must also ground your positions in facts & hold others to this standard.

 

Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Respuesta de Michael "Mike" Worley:

My Senate District is somewhat unique in that even in Dry years we have enough Water to cover all needs if water is sensibly used. What we don't always have is enough water for Export. It has been my experience thru several major & even more minor Droughts that WATER NEEDS TO BE USED MORE APPROPRIATELY in areas with more scarcity. Urban landscaping & Agricultural Permacrops need to be regulated in areas where there is water scarcity.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of young, low-income Californians?
Respuesta de Michael "Mike" Worley:

I think all young Californians, no matter what Income level or willingness of Parents to Participate, deserve the same quality of Educational Opportunity. I worked in Public Schools for 16 years as a Substitute Teacher & saw both the strengths & the failures of the Educational System. If elected I will use that experience to help give California Students the education they deserve.  I will also lower tuition rates @ UC & CSUC to the levels that prevailed in 1980/81 adjusted for inflation. 

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 Senator to address the state’s unfunded pension liability?
Respuesta de Michael "Mike" Worley:

I would demand an audit of all CALPERS Agencies accounts plus information on any funds that has been set aside to pay these liabilities to get a true picture of the problem. For example my Park District has an unfunded liability $2.1 M in2016 (we don't have the 2017 number yet) & a special Fund set aside to pay them that contains $1.7 M.
