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 Jose Medina:

I believe the State needs to work with private industries to increase the supply of homes. At the same time, within this supply of homes, there are low - cost and affordable housing being built to ensure that there are enough housing to cater to all levels of income. 

The State should work towards lowering the college debt so that students who graduate from college do not have this financial burden that prevents them from purchasing their first home. 

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 Jose Medina:

In my 6 years as a State Assemblymember, I have worked with and enjoyed great personal relationships with members of both political parties. Putting politics aside, it’s crucial to continue fostering friendships with Democrat and Republican members to ensure civility is maintained.

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 Jose Medina:

Locally, we must continue to conserve water. At the same time, we need to continue to ensure there's accessibility to the Northern California Water Source while being mindful of the environmental impact. 

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

There is high importance of state - supported early childhood education for children starting from 1 - 3 years of age. We must ensure there is accesibility to quality early childhood education for all children regardless of income level. I continue to support the local funding formula that puts more money in the poorest, neediest public schools.
