Taking on the privatization of the Escondido Public Library

The City Council of the City of Escondido failed its community, failed the public library workers, and failed to follow the law.

City of Escondido sells out Library services

Our public library is no more.  It is now a corporate run concern whose company is answerable to its shareholders not the citizens of Escondido.  This decision will be challenged, and ultimately decided, in court.  It will be argued that the City Council’s decision is ultra vires (beyond the scope of their authority) and whose Board of Trustees is correctly entrusted with such decisions.  The Board of Trustees did not agree with this privatization of public services.

Campaign Finance Reform

Right now, California has the chance to lead the nation in the fight to stop secret money from buying elections – by passing AB 249, the California DISCLOSE Act. AB 249 will strike a major blow against secret money by requiring ballot measure ads to clearly and prominently show the real names of their top 3 funders – the first bill in the nation to do so.

Medicare for All

SB562 "Medicare for All" has been assigned to the Assembly Rules Committee for the remainder of 2017. This places the bill squarely as part of the 2018 election season. I will fight to make "Medicare for All" law for California.

Ending Homelessness in California

San Diego has the fourth largest homeless population in the nation after New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. This problem has developed over many years and will take many years to solve. San Diego County had 17,500 people cycle through local homelessness programs between October 2015 and September 2016, far more than the roughly 8,700 the region’s annual homeless count in January has found over the last two years. San Diego already suffers from a relative lack of funding because of the federal government’s formula for doling out money to address homelessness, which provides San Diego the 22nd most money in the nation despite having the fourth largest homeless population. Until the federal government gets a clue, we have to continue to lead in California -- Homelessness is no exception.

According to the Regional Task Force on the Homeless Report dated April 2017, the numbers of chronically homeless persons in Inland North San Diego County (Escondido, San Marcos, Fallbrook) and Inland Orange County (Temecula) are increasing. The numbers of chronically homeless persons who are unsheltered is also increasing. Veterans make up 12% of our homeless population.

I support San Diego's central intake center which is expected to open in 2019, including a hotline for available beds, adding a few hundred more temporary shelter beds, renovating a downtown facility where homeless people can shower, and expanding the Downtown Partnership’s family reunification program. As your state representaive, I will work to find common ground solutions with the cities I represent, the property owners in our region and the organizations who will continue to spearhead the efforts. In California, there is no reason for any human being to be homeless.

Record heat and climate change policy

We will be experiencing record high temperatures in San Diego County this summer. It seems like every year we reach new extremes in our weather patterns.

15 years ago scientists were fighting the political forces to resist the data. Of course, the fossil fuel industry was engrossed in an "alternative facts" campaign to promulgate the notion that earth's climate is ever changing and that human activity does not matter, so continue drilling and burning those fossil fuels.

California is leading the nation in developing a comprehensive set of solutions to reduce global warming pollution in the state. The foundation for the state’s pollution-fighting activities is a 2006 law, the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32), which calls for reducing the state’s global warming emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.

I will support our global participation with reducing our emissions and building a renewable energy system that will carry California into the next century. This is what fearless leadership requires.
