Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Healthcare Freedom - Right to make choices for yourself and your family. Parents have many important decisions to make for their children and their healthcare is a key area for long-term development.
  • Education - Right to choose best education for your children. Our schools in CA are often providing poor performance standards compared to the rest of the country. School choice will bolster privatized schooling options, trade schools, etc.
  • Homelessness/Housing - Reduce factors that prohibit affordable house. Encourage community programs to help build good mental health and job skills to reenter the job market.

Experiencia

Biografía

Throughout my career, I've managed apartments (both income restricted and fair market) and I’ve served as an Auditor with the State of California in two departments (California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) and California Department of Education (CDE)). Today, I’m grateful to work with a foundation creating a vision aimed at increasing well-being for each of us and our posterity. 

After seeing how the state operates from the inside, I've made a point to study our political systems, with the specific goal of improving our communities and minimizing hardships. I support the growth of private business, the expression of individuals seeking the American Dream, and the opportunity to find prosperity through adding benefit to those around them.

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 Janine DeRose:

Housing is limited by current policy. Developers are discouraged from building by current regulations and fees/taxes, which significantly depletes our housing options and drives up the cost of housing for everyone. We should be working to reduce the factors that prohibit affordable house and we should be encouraging community programs to help build good mental health and job skills to reenter the job market. 

The cost of living has skyrocketed. I have personally experienced serious increases in rent and other expenses to the point that my ability to live comfortably has been impacted. Most people I've spoken with are in the same boat to one degree or another. Limiting housing and pushing up both rental rates and real estate rates leaves the citizens of California depleted across the board. When you couple that with the devastating effects of suppressing the job market, we end up with the worst impact on people who are already living in poverty. In addition, if people are receiving monetary support from public funds, they are actively discouraged from finding gainful employment. If they do find a starter job, they are punished with the removal of their funding. That means they are stuck at whatever rate they receive from public funding, even if that amount isn't enough to live on. 

It’s imperative we immediately reduce the factors that prohibit affordable housing. The cost of housing has risen to a rate that's leaving many homeless as a result. Land use fees should be suspended and land development encouraged to rebalance the system and increase available affordable housing.

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 Janine DeRose:

The fabric of our culture has significantly eroded and needs repair. Returning to a place where we mutually value human respect is vital. Our political system is caustic, at best, and discourages moral integrity. We need to create a political environment where people feel comfortable participating and feel discouraged from behaving badly. All of our laws are back up with the threat of force and this inherently decreases our sensitivity to the threat of force. Basic human respect is lacking. 

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 Janine DeRose:

The state should not be supporting corporations. When the state artificially props up a company, they no longer need to protect the natural resources required to have a successful business. This creates a lack of respect for the environment.

California has abundant water for our hot, sunny days. Resources are plentiful in California with appropriate management. Poor management has short-changed our ability to capture, store, and transport water for when it’s needed most. A practical approach to developing this infrastructure is needed immediately so that we enter our next draught season prepared.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of young, low-income Californians?
Respuesta de Janine DeRose:

California schools are currently ranked 42st in the Nation. Frankly, this is unacceptable. Educational opportunities allow children to blossom. Limiting our education to a rigid system makes it difficult for parents to choose what works best for their family and has led to the degradation of our schools. At the very least, we should support school choice, if not a complete overhaul of the current educational system.

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 Janine DeRose:

Pension reform is needed.

Filosofía política

What do we need to thrive? Good food, clean water, housing, the opportunity to make a living, the ability to nurture our families and keep them safe. The opportunity for prosperity and safety exist within California, but our precious resources are bled dry by an aggressive and over-grown government. 

This is not a new problem, but the methods to solve this problem are not currently part of the conversation happening at our state capitol. A free market approach leads to consumer-driven goods and services that adapt to changing times and allow for the return of innovation to our stagnant economy. The agreements we make with each other provide the most effective and natural regulation.

The people responsible for miss-managing public funds need to go. They continually ask for great resources without providing the promised benefits. These simple changes will result in the return of prosperity to future generations.

It's important that we return to a culture that encompasses values of human respect. Very simply put, libertarianism means that we don't hurt people and we don't take their stuff. This allows for people to live freely and thrive.
