Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • I want to help bring Oceanside together as one community by focusing on my core principles which are growth & opportunity, risk & cost management, and legacy & happiness.
  • I believe it is important to make sure that we continue to revitalize all of Oceanside. By bringing in new businesses it helps to ensure that everyone in Oceanside makes a livable wage, continues to advance their careers, and sees their wages grow.
  • Along with this growth I think we must focus on our education system. We are not advocating strongly enough for the next generation of Oceansiders. They deserve a quality education that can prepare them for future success. .

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters North County San Diego (3)

Do you support increasing the housing density in your district of Oceanside? What other options might there be for improving the City's supply of affordable housing?
Respuesta de Kristopher R. Kagan:

One solution that I would like to pursue is repurposing our current strip malls to be multi-functional properties that support businesses and include affordable housing. If we keep the businesses on the ground floor and build apartments and townhomes on top of these existing strip malls we are maximizing the space as well as rejuvenating some of these areas. We need to have thoughtful planning and smart growth that combines residential, commercial, and open spaces.

Do you approve of the City's current approach to addressing the problems of homelessness in Oceanside? What specific changes, if any, would you make?
Respuesta de Kristopher R. Kagan:

We need to ensure the health and safety of both the homeless population and the rest of the community. Having food banks, homeless shelters, and healthcare opportunities will go a long way in helping the situation but there might be some out of the box opportunities that we can explore. Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, just dedicated $2 billion dollars to a new foundation for the homeless and preschool education. We should look at partnering with different organizations and bringing in new ideas.

Do you advocate any changes to the City's current policies regarding recreational and medical cannabis businesses? Please explain.
Respuesta de Kristopher R. Kagan:

The people of California have spoken. It is not an issue of if but when this change will occur. Right now, there are billions of dollars being invested in the marijuana industry. This is a perfect example of how city council is not moving with the times and allowing for innovation. They are moving too slowly. There is a great opportunity for us to capture some of that investment and be leaders on the issue. This would bring in substantial revenue flows to the community that can be applied to many different projects.
