Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Christopher Stare:

As more and more people move to Los Angeles, the need for housing rapidly increases. However, restrictive zoning laws and building regulations make it difficult to meet this growing demand, causing skyrocketing rents and housing costs. Though some suggest forcing renters to maintain certain prices, this does not address the primary problem: there is simply not enough housing to meet the demand of our growing population, forcing prices continuously higher. I will work towards making housing development easier, thus alleviating the problems of costly rents and homelessness in our city, all while allowing for more construction jobs and greater economic growth.

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 Christopher Stare:

If elected, my position as a third party candidate will put me in a unique position to reach across the aisle and come to effective, nonpartisan solutions to California's problems. I will insist that my policy positions and conversations are not centered around the vitriolic two-party feuding that has engrossed our nation, but rather are founded in independent thought, civil discourse, and the input from all of my constituents. Likewise, libertarianism is built around the Non-Aggression Principle, an idea that is very important to me: violence against others is never appropriate except in the case of self-defense against violence. Though much of the anger in our political dialogue is warranted, it cannot ultimately be what guides our actions.

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

It goes without saying that air pollution and water supply are issues important in Los Angeles. However, oftentimes the burden of solving these problems is put on the backs of normal, hard-working Californians instead of those who disproportionately pollute or use resources. Instead of instituting across-the-board penalties (such as burdensome gas taxes) on people who contribute the least to pollution, I will create more targeted restrictions towards those who pollute the most. Perhaps more importantly, however, I would like to create incentives for clean energy, particularly in the form of more extensive tax breaks for those who invest in or utilize renewable energy. Finally, I would push to see money currently being wasted on unnecessary infrastructure - such as special interest projects like high speed rail - be used instead on water retention and efficiency measures.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Respuesta de Christopher Stare:

Our educational system has been overrun with administrative bloat, a problem that has been compounded by both neverending regulations and self-interested educational management. Currently, California spends roughly $9000 per student, or $225,000 per every classroom of 25 students. The idea that this is not enough to both pay a fair salary for a teacher and one year of operating costs for one classroom is absurd, and this reality demonstrates the amount of waste in our system. Further, the allocation of these resources often disproprtionately goes to already well-off areas, as there is no incentive for reallocation to schools in need. I believe that we need a different approach to our education system, and ideas such as charter schools and school vouchers provide a means to allow all young Californians to receive the education they deserve. I will work to ensure that systems are put in place to ensure money is going to the right places, rather than giving empty promises that simply increasing spending will help matters.
