Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Usar mi formación médica para analizar y aplicar la ciencia a los problemas que rodean las decisiones sobre la pandemia del COVID para ayudar a California a superar esta crisis de forma segura.
  • Priorizar y reorientar los recursos hacia una mejor política sobre cómo combatir la crisis de los opioides en California.
  • Legislar para ayudar a un mejor control de la violencia con armas de fuego en California, incluyendo la exigencia de verificación universal de antecedentes y la prohibición de las armas de asalto.

California needs a viable, moderate Democrat who understands comebacks to lead the way.  As the pandemic persists, we need someone who knows the medical science and the law.  Mine is a comeback story.  I built myself into a success, got hooked on drugs and lost everything. Then I conquered addiction and rose from the ashes to rebuild everything and more.  I am a native Californian born and raised in San Diego. I went to UC Davis and graduated with Highest Honors with a degree in Genetics.  I attended medical school to become a doctor, while simultaneously attaining my Masters in Public Health and Masters in Business Administration. Next, I established a successful cosmetic surgery center. I had it all, including a family and three kids. Then I lost everything after I got hooked on drugs, which started with an opiate addiction after taking narcotics for a back injury. My career, marriage, finances, friends, and custody of my children- GONE!  I entered a recovery program seven years ago and turned my life around. I graduated law school and rebuilt my medical practice better than before. I regained custody of my kids, have a wonderful family and a fulfilling life. I run a charity that offers free cosmetic surgery to children following trauma and radiation treatments for brain tumors. I live a sober life and will make an excellent governor. If nothing else, I hope to at least be an inspiration to addicts and their families that addiction can be overcome.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (3)

How would you address California’s need for affordable housing for low- and moderate-income earners? Please include specific proposals.
Respuesta de Brandon M. Ross:

There are simply not enough homes in California to meet demand.  This has caused home prices to soar and price out many who could otherwise afford to own a home.  The bureaucratic red tape needs to be slashed to enable development of new homes to proceed at a faster rate.  In addition, California needs to drastically increase public housing.  In doing so, it will increase the number of homes available and decrease the homeless population by moving them into safe, modest homes owned by the government so they can get back on their feet and turn their lives around.  Public housing can be developed on state-owned land or with inexpensive private purchases.  It can be developed by private contractors through a competitive bidding process, further pumping up the economy.

How would you address the issue of California’s residents who are unhoused? Please include specific proposals.
Respuesta de Brandon M. Ross:

Every human being should be entitled to food, shelter and healthcare.  In addition to drastically increasing development of public houses, as mentioned above, California should develop more state-funded homeless shelters.  Homeless people should have a safe place to go to stay off the streets.  They should be well-fed and cared for.  Though downtrodden, many will ultimately turn their lives around and contribute in a positive way towards society.  Let’s get them off of the streets and into safe shelter.

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?  Please include specific proposals.
Respuesta de Brandon M. Ross:

During this time of drought, California needs to enact temporary water restrictions.  Cutting consumption by 20% per household would allow for safe water supplies for every Californian.  In addition, rebates should be increased to encourage water-saving alternatives such as artificial grasses and water-saving appliances.

Filosofía política

I am a moderate democrat who strongly believes in putting an end to the racism and divisiveness that have ramped up over the last several years in our country.  I am pro-choice and support stronger gun laws.  I would like to make it a priority to fight the opioid crisis and help navigate California through the covid pandemic.
