Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Obtener una extensión para el hospital de Antelope Valley y modernizar las instalaciones.
  • Solicitar al gobernador Newsom que declare un estado de emergencia para retirar a las personas sin hogar de las calles y colocarlas en refugios.
  • Abordar la posibilidad de un sismo y sus consecuencias.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de 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?
Respuesta de Michael P. Rives:

There is only so much land in California to build upon. We have almost reached our capacity and must consider high density in the core of some cities and utilize the areas outside the inner city for single family dwellings.

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?
Respuesta de Michael P. Rives:

It costs a billion dollars to convert water from the ocean to 100,000 households. Rather than build a High Speed Rail, we should be building desaltization plants to meet our water needs.

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.
Respuesta de Michael P. Rives:

California has already mandated some items that will help meet the goal of carbon neutrality. All housing must provide solar heating and lighting capacity in the future. I would promote low cost solar panels to individual homeoweners at little or no cost to meet the goal in 2045. I would also provide the development of smaller panels and units that would provide the same capacity as the large panels but with less size.

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?
Respuesta de Michael P. Rives:

I believe if you commit a crime, you should be incarerated. With an increase in populatlion, we will have more crime. I believe the inmates should be utilized to care for the institution that they are serving in and they should have to work for their room and board while serving their sentence.

The homeless problem is an indicatator of a much bigger problem.

We need to address the homeless issue as an emergency issue. If we cannot take care of the 130,000 homeless in California, how are we going to take care of the hundreds of thousands who may be homeless when a major quake hits the Bay area or Southern California? We need get the homeless off the streets, shelter them in tents and permenent shelters, evaluate them, and then place them. Mental hospitals need to be reopened. Social worker teams need to be formed and expanded to handle the homeless. The Governor needs to ask the President to call California a disaster area, so that we can get federal funds to help us. The State needs to take care of the homeless funds in the State and allocate them accordingly to the different areas and needs. If we can manage the homeless problem, we will have a basis for handling the problems of a major devasting earthquake.
