Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California and Elect Justice CA (2)

Does your office have any plans to include currently or formerly incarcerated people in your decision-making process as it relates to criminal justice issues? What would that look like?
Answer from Eleassia Davis:

As a small, close-knit community, Tracy is an ideal place to live, become civically involved, and make one's concerns heard. As it stands I am not aware of any plans to involve those who are currently incarcerated in the decision-making processes as it relates to criminal justice. However, our community does an excellent job of giving every citizen, (including those who may have been formerly incarcerated) the opportunity to get involved with any number of boards and committees that help advise and/or shape policy in our town. If one has served time for crimes committed, paid his debt to society, has been reformed, as required and/or necessary, I see no reason not to support the restoration of all rights, privileges afforded to the average citizen under the law, including being involved in any decision-making processes that impact formerly incarcerated persons.

With 8,000 people eligible for release from CA prisons to help stem the transmission of COVID-19, how, if at all, would your office aid these Californians and their families in navigating reentry?
Answer from Eleassia Davis:

Tracy is a small, close-knit community and where there is a need to support a family Tracyite, we always seem to find a way to make it happen. I believe in practical solutions. The first step to aiding these families through this process would be to partner with local non-profit organizations, businesses, churches, and charities to assess available resources. Access to housing, shelter, food, clothing, medical, job training, and other supportive services that may be offered through the city, county, or state could be managed through assessment and consolidation of services and resources by participating partners. Community partners, including clergy, and volunteers, could serve as ombudsmen to help assist those who need help by directing them to the correct community partner for resources.
