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 Robert J. Sexton:

The homeless crisis is an epidemic caused by economic hardships, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, and crime. I am deeply sympathetic to those trapped in the cycle of poverty, the working poor who have to sleep in their cars and on the streets. It’s one of the worst problems facing our nation, our state and our city today. It is the reason that I am running.

I have a fully inclusive set of policies to help those struggling with mental health issues, mothers and children, veterans, addicts and all those trapped on the streets, and to root out crime. The details are on my website at Sexton2020Vision.com.

Unlike many career politicians, I will make sure development works for all of us, for both people and local businesses. Rent stabilization is an important aspect of my platform. I’m trying to make sure that people who have lived in their homes for decades may stay. Rent stabilization will also help preserve small businesses that have paid their dues and contributed to the community, thereby spurring more local industrial growth.

Affordable housing should be supported strongly by Los Angeles, and it’s my priority that homes are occupied. It is a disgrace that L.A. residents pay 46.90% of their income for rent and that thousands are out on the street while penthouses owned by foreign investment companies sit empty.

This is happening across America. L.A. is but a microcosm of Developer/Politician mentality. We’ve been told by our elected officials that the overdevelopment of Los Angeles would not happen. That they would not take developers’ money. That they would solve the homelessness crisis. Yet look at what the politicians are feeding us.

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?
Respuesta de Robert J. Sexton:

The last California drought lasted six years, from 2011 to 2017, and during that time #WeThePeople were told not to shower for as long and not to flush the toilet. Meanwhile, major corporations like Nestle were allowed to pilfer water to sell off in their plastic bottles. Nobody has been held accountable, as it was the career politicians who let them get away with it. #NotOnMyWatch

Corporations get away with pollution all the time in this country, which must be recognized as a factor in our water rights crisis. Crystal Geyser was dumping arsenic waste into our water for years, and what did they get for it? A five million dollar fine, for fifteen years of arsenic pollution. In that time, they profited an estimated 717 billion dollars. (Source: https://www.owler.com/company/crystalgeyser)

Oil rigs off our beautiful coast have been on the table for many politicians, but they still refuse to consider desalination and rainwater collection facilities? Give me a break. We need to be investing in long term strategies in order to combat the droughts that cycle in our state. We need to save water for a rainy day (pun intended).

Carbon Neutrality Question

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.

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 Robert J. Sexton:

Criminalization is not the answer to the crises of mental illness, drug abuse, and homelessness. Mental health rehabilitation programs need to be created in order to help address particular needs. Alongside these programs, the government must provide services to help people with mental illnesses get back on their feet, stay healthy and stay off the streets.

I propose that repeat offenders of hard drug possession and public use will be “sentenced to” thirty to ninety days of rehab. This will make the entire community safer, while not furthering the harmful drug criminalization of the past. Those serving hard time for nonviolent drug crimes should be released from prison, as this system fails continually. Rehabilitation is the answer.
