Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
I am for it so long as we also have a sound fiscal plan in place to air-condition the public schools as promised and fully fund the amount required to address the repair and maintenance backlog of our public schools that has gone unabated for decades.
What is your one big idea?
Take farmland that’s sitting fallow and grow industrial hemp on it. This will create tens of thousands of new jobs — from cultivation itself to processing the plant into food, fuel, clothing, textiles, and hempcrete/building material. This could transform the homeless crisis into a thriving economic sustainability machine. All can apply.
