Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Trabajar para que California sea más amigable con los negocios, para que nuestra economía crezca y cree empleos.
  • Ampliar las escuelas particulares para proporcionar más opciones educativas.
  • Luchar para hacer que el gobierno gaste el dinero de nuestros impuestos de manera eficiente. Arrojaré luz sobre el despilfarro del gobierno y trabajaré para detener proyectos mal administrados como el tren bala.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Philip "Phil" Graham:

It is time for Sacramento's war on affordable housing to end. 

Continuing to raise taxes and adopting regulations that limit the supply of housing only increases the price of housing.

Cities like Dallas, Phoenix, and Atlanta have managed to stay affordable by simply allowing housing to continue to be built as their populations grow. California should do the same. 

The State should immediatly start cutting taxes and regulations so that more people don't fall into poverty, as housing costs are the biggest reason people fall into poverty. 

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Philip "Phil" Graham:

I will address and promote the civility issue by doing what I have done in the private sector, lead by example. Period.

Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow that your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Respuesta de Philip "Phil" Graham:

San Diego county is a leader when it comes to managing our water supplies. Reclamation, water storage and building the largest desalinazation plant in the Western hemisphere has made this fact a reality.

The rest of the state needs to do a much better job of managing their water sources. We need to invest in water infrastructure, capture the millions of gallons of water that flow into the ocean every year and invest in more desalinization plants. 

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Respuesta de Philip "Phil" Graham:

I've sat on the board of a leading Charter School for many years. In order to be accepted, and there is a long line of applicants waiting to be accepted, the parents of the applicant must not have gone to a four year college, they must be from a low income family and they must accept a longer school year. The vast majority of those accepted are minority and, by design, are poverty stricken. The graduation rate has kept steady at 99% and almost all go on to great four year colleges. Allowing parents to have more choice in where they can send their children, when so many of our public schools are failing, is an outstanding way to solve our educational problems.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Even though we have the highest taxes in the country, too many politicians in Sacramento demand the middle class and working families pay even more. Before I decided to run for Assembly, I volunteered to the fight against a massive new gas tax that is going to cost families and those who are in most in need.

California’s record-high budget remains in a surplus, though amazingly politicians insist on passing the largest gas tax increase in California history. They are also considering a new tax on real estate transactions, and even an assault on Proposition 13. I will fight their efforts that make California even more unaffordable.

The priorities of too many Sacramento politicians are clearly not yours. Instead of asking you to pay more every year to the State government, we should instead focus on funding core services like public safety, education, and infrastructure. By setting priorities for the services most important to our communities, we can fully fund the state government while saying NO to new taxes.
