Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?

Yes, it will save the state money by not building new preschool facilities, and allow the state to reach preschool children earlier.

What is your one big idea?

To find a solution for the increasing homeless population. We need more outreach mental health workers to identify mentally ill, and to sort the employed homeless, and those that choose to leave that lifestyle. That will require additional state resources to house and treat the homeless.
