My Top 3 Priorities

  • Make California Affordable, Whether it’s a new tax on gas, water, or income -- families can’t afford to shoulder the costs of every new government program.
  • Fund the Police and Stop the Release of Violent Criminals, To keep our neighborhoods safe, we have to hold violent criminals accountable. I did not, and will never, support any effort to “defund the police.”
  • Protect Central Valley Water Access, For too long, politicians in Sacramento have talked about improving water access, but done little to improve our infrastructure needs. I will push for authorization and funding to increase water storage.

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 Chad M. Condit:

I would work to reform our water resources board and support proposals that create water storage for our communities and farms. We have to become self reliant with strong water rights for our communities and not be at the mercy of unelected bureaucrats that put fish above people in their decision making. Both political parties have let us down on this issue of water storage and with each passing day the problem gets worse. It's time to elect people that look for solutions not who gets the credit.

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

I would pursue proposals that bring local government, state government and developers together. We must make affordable housing a priority by supporting new development and encourage a more cooperative attitude in approving projects that improve our communities and allow affordable opportunities for our residents. Seniors on a fixed income have become more and more vulnerable in our current housing market and tough economic times. Tough times hit the Central Valley extra hard and we need an experienced effective voice in Sacramento.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of young, low-income Californians?
Answer from Chad M. Condit:

Public education is the great equalizer in our country. Poverty is to common and child hunger touches to many families. We should ensure our teachers are the best trained and payed well for the important job they have. School administrators should not be payed outlandish salaries that don't reflect a sense of fairness towards the taxpayers and the students they serve. We must always have meals for those students that need it and encourage a better partnership between our agriculture business community and our schools. And we should always encourage parent participation in our schools.

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 Chad M. Condit:

I would support reasonable approaches that put science and fact above politics and emotion.
