Actividades comunitarias

I have worked with UCLA to help their students who were former foster kids, UCLA (2014–2016)


I am an immigrant from Belfast, Northern Ireland.  We came to the USA and California and it was a dream state where there was so much opporunity.  I got my cosmetology license and eventually opened my own salon where staff could grow and prosper, like I want for all Californians.  I listen to hudreds of people a week, from all different political parties, economic and ethnic bacgrounds.  I can make decisions that are fair, fast, economical and are what the people are saying what they need and whatis lacking.  I am not owned by any union or lobby.

Education is THE key to ending systemic poverty!


By giving kids an education that focuses on life skills and encouraging college or trade school they will graduate with skills that are more than just a minimum wage job.

Knowledge is power and the more knowledge people have the more empowered they feel. 

When kids are undereducated they are more and more challenged and fall more behind year by year until they don’t want to struggle anymore. 


To supplement education, I would propose making instructional videos that would cover all grades and all subjects.  We could make a YouTube channel that kids could watch videos of subject material that they are also learning in their classrooms.  We are in California, we have an abundance of people who could make content interesting and informative for students.  This would help kids who struggle to learn in the traditional way,  have fallen behind, need extra time on subjects and give kids a bit of a leg up if they view them in advance of the classes.

This could even help kids worldwide and anyone who wants to learn (Like ESL students, older people who lack education and people who live in rural areas who don’t have easy access to schools)  


I would like traditional books to be moved to an electronic form when possible.  Besides not needing the paper that books use, the weight of the books that kids have to carry around, they could be updated much easier.  Electronic books could have references that could be clicked on easily and they could be listened to or read.  


Education needs to have more life skills taught in classes and Financial Literacy should be taught appropriately at every grade level.  People are unprepared to hold jobs because of lack of quality relevant educational system and the disconnect between Home, School and Community .  By the time kids graduate from High School they should have a good grasp on what it takes to start an independent life.


I would like to offer 2 years of free junior college or trade school to any student in California if they attend school regularly, maintain a “C” or higher grade average and work part time or participate in a sports program….If something is just given to someone then it doesn’t have the same value as when the person is working towards a goal for themselves. 


I believe you should have a choice on where your kids go to school.


Recently, there has been controversy of transgender people participating in sports.  I am all for exclusivity, but a trend where opposite genders are participating in sports as a new gender is not fair or equal.  I propose increasing the two separate gender sports programs to three to have a dedicated non-binary group.  I believe this will be the way to go in all future sporting events. 

My Immigration Position


I believe my policy will help aleve the number of immigrants waiting at the border and help the businesses that need workers.

As an immigrant myself, I am pro legal immigration.   I believe no person is “illegal” but their status may be.  This proposal covers 2 issues that are impacting California.



Right now we have hundreds of thousands of people arriving at our southern border, at the same time we have thousands of businesses that are struggling to hire staff.  With all the immigrants coming to the border and all the businesses in California needing staff, why not combine the two to alleviate both issues.


Most of the positions that businesses need to fill are entry level, low skill positions that a lot of citizens don’t want to do.  The United States and California have long depended on immigrant workers to fill these sorts of positions.


I propose that we vet and match up immigrants with businesses that need employees.  The immigrants would be given the opportunity to work for 2 years at a business in the program, pay taxes and start to learn English and if they can do this, and be checked on periodically through the 2 years.   It would give them a pathway to residency. 


If they can not complete the 2 years they would be returned to their country of origin to apply through the legal process and those who do not want to participate or are incapable of participating they can wait at the border for their application for immigration to be processed. 


Statewide day to Honor our citizens who wear a badge and serve and protect us.


I want to have a day to Honor those among us who wear a badge and serve and protect us.  It would not be a hoilday because these are the people who never get holidays off.   It would be like a Mother's Day or Father's Day, possibly on the 2nd Sunday in August or 2nd Sunday in October. 

As Governor I will set aside a State wide day to honor and celebrate all our citizens who wear a badge working in Law Enforcement protecting us everyday and our citizens who work in the Fire Departments.  


I honestly can’t believe that this hasn’t happened before and we need to show our appreciation to those who put their lives on the line every day to serve and protect us.  


The job they do for us is difficult and dangerous and underappreciated.  


This would help with retention within heir departments and possibly make more people want to join these professions.


I am on the side of victims, not on those who commit crimes.  I want everyone to feel safe in this once great state.
