Preguntas y Respuestas

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

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Respuesta de Chris Wood:

To keep it simple, I would ensure that each particular infrastructure system should be self-supported by the end-users that utilize the system.  For example, roads should be paid for through vehicle registration fees based on tracked vehicle mileage and vehicle type/class (passenger cars versus semi-trucks).  Gas taxes can be the continuing means to finance roads, but it does not account for growing number of electric/alternative-fuel vehicles.  Similarly, rail, ports, airports, electrical grid systems can also be supported by end-users, as many other economic-systems follow.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Chris Wood:

I think Medicaid for all would be worth exploring.  Another route would be to provide public financing (and oversight) of local emergency-room and possibly general preventative care paid for via local property taxes similar to how utility districts operate.  Specialized care and long-term could remain outside the public domain (to keep taxes lower), or added (if the public supports the tax initiative).

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House.
Respuesta de Chris Wood:

I think the "sins" of the (undocumented) parents should not extend to their children.  Any "dreamers" should be afforded an avenue (short track) to become citizens if they have a proven track record of attending public schools and have spent a majority of their life in this Country.  Parents (undocumented) with a clean history (free of criminal history) could be put on a plan to become citizens (longer track) themselves.

International policy is also important to understand in this context.  Providing economic and security support to Country's/areas (mainly Latin America in this context) should be encouraged to ensure there is less need/drive for people to leave their Countries of origin in the first place.  The possibilities here are much greater.  Treat the underlying problem, not just the symptom.

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of Californians and the federal water project infrastructure in California?
Respuesta de Chris Wood:

I am not intimately familiar with the status of water supply issues.  However, I believe in the continued pursuit of water efficiency, water storage, prioritization of domestic use, development of smart irrigation systems (agriculture), and system expansion (possibly even desalinization plants if necessary).

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 Chris Wood:

The best/only way Civility can "make a comeback" is to act accordingly on an individual level, and inspire others to do the same.  Lead by example.  People must decide for themselves if they truly wish to Act in alignment with their surveyed Beliefs.
