Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (4)

What programs, proposals, projects, or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?
Answer from Jolene Rehana Daly:

Require California to follow through with the 2014 water bond act that the voters chose. The programs are set in place, they just need to actually follow through with building the Sites Reservior and increase the storage capacity in the other reserviors. Again, more "environmentalist" getting in the way of working together to make California a livable community once again. 

Describe what proposal(s) you would support to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing for middle and low income people in California?
Answer from Jolene Rehana Daly:

What is needed is decreasing regulations. The current regulations on homes in California adds about $100,000, which is not realistic to decrease the housing shortage. In addition, many citiies do you allow the building of single family homes smaller than 1000 sq ft. Again, this is a regulation that does not help, yet harms, the ever increasing housing problem. We are placing regulations and the "environment" above people. 

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of young, low-income Californians?
Answer from Jolene Rehana Daly:

We need to address the education problem by addressing the ridiculous salaries of the educators, admin, etc. The cost of a higher education is not as much as they claim, and transperency is necessary. We need to also address that not everyone needs to attend a traditional college. The pandemic should have shown us who is esential is not necessary the ones with the degrees. We need to start education from K-12 to understand reading, writing, and arithmatic without the bias from the educators or the teachers unions. Those individuals are there to teach not to tell someone their values, morals, etc. They need to learn to respect the parental role. 

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 Jolene Rehana Daly:

The United States can produce the cleanest fuel in the world yet we import dirty fuel claiming we are helping the "climate crisis." It is appropriate to be good stewards of what God created, although it is not appropriate to put that above people. We need to work together to be realistic in our process. We can produce clean nuclear energy and solve the energy problems we face, although again the "environmentalist" claim it is bad and work against it. Many people are not willing to sit at the table and actual solve these problems, they just want to sit in the ivory towers and preach. I would require all to begin to communicate and compromise.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

She loves her community and wants to represent you by returning the government power back to the people. She is tired of the band-aids the government places on problems, being reactive rather than proactive. Jolene has some ideas about how to focus and change what is needed in District 4. Jolene would like to start a conversation with each and every one of you about how you would make changes.
