Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (4)

Describe what proposal(s) you would support to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing for all income groups in California?
Answer from Steve Fox:

Home ownership is a goal that I think every Red Blooded American can agree on!

It's the American way of life, it's the American dream, and although some people aren't good at managing their own finances or have less than perfect credit history, it should still be an option, even if that means that we have to reinvent the concept.

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?
Answer from Steve Fox:

As a Jewish American, I am very intimately aware of the amazing progress that Israel has had in solving their water crisis.

I say it's time we take a leaf from their book, and use our expansive ocean access to build Desalinization plants, providing fresh clean potable water to the entire state.  Then selling any excesses beyond reasonable reserves, to the highest bidder.

 

To reach a goal of carbon neutrality by 2045, as set forth in a 2018 executive order what, if any, proposals, plans or legislation would you support?  Please be specific.
Answer from Steve Fox:

I believe California is already doing its part, and at the state level there's not a whole lot more we can do.

 

Obviously the climate changes regardless of the human impact and I think that it's time we as a people prepare for the inevitability of climate disasters far greater than we've ever experienced before.

According to the California Legislative Analyst’s Office, we spend over $81,000 per individual who is incarcerated.  Other than incarceration, what ways can the State address safety and justice?
Answer from Steve Fox:

I'm a big fan of the Northern European Penal System, in that there are very low recidivism rates and the focus is on building up the person in small group setting, as opposed to punishing the person (which leads to reinforcement of otherwise already damage social expectations).
