Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Restaurar la libertad personal y la libertad del pueblo poniendo fin al "Estado de Emergencia" y a los mandatos emitidos bajo el liderazgo actual.
  • Restaurar la ley y el orden derogando la Propuesta 7 y apoyando a nuestros funcionarios del orden público para que hagan el trabajo para el que han sido entrenados. Hacer que el crimen se castigue de nuevo.
  • Resolver la crisis de la falta de vivienda que está destruyendo nuestras ciudades mediante el abordaje de las causas fundamentales del problema que incluyen la adicción a las drogas, la salud mental y la vivienda.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California (4)

What policies or proposals would you support to reduce the number of people who are homeless and to prevent people from becoming homeless in California?
Respuesta de Lonnie Sortor:

I would support a comprehensive program that focuses on the root of the issues.  The majority of homelessness can be categorized into 3 different groups, all with subset groups or issues.  1) People with mental and/or substance addiction issues; 2) People who are down on their luck whether it be from a job loss or other major event in their life; 3) People who chose a life on the streets.  This group has no desire to change they way they live.  My plan is to begin the process with a temporary shelter processig center.  This is a place where people can get a meal, get cleaned up, receive shelter, and be evaluated to see where they should go next.  Step two is to get help for those who need and want it.  Step three would be to integrate these folks back into society where they once again have a sense of purpose and self worth.  This is not a problem that is easily solved by just spending money.  California has spent $12B - $14B in the last 3 years and the problem has only gotten worse.  Bad policies add to the increasing homelessness issues in our state.

What policies or proposals would you support to encourage and develop sources of electrical power that will reduce the release of carbon into the atmosphere while still being affordable for all residential consumers?
Respuesta de Lonnie Sortor:

I would support investigating the use of Nuclear Power as a source for energy.  It has proven to be super low cost tot eh end user and has a very small carbon footprint.  Given the advancement in technology, this can be impleneted safely and provide power for generations to come.  We should also rely more on our own natural gas supply.  It is the cleanest in the world.  Geothermal sources are an excelent alternative as well.  The largest obstacle to overcome is how to make the existing infrastructure (power grid) more reliable.  In it's current condition, the power grid cannot support any future growth, as evidenced by our continued "rolling" black outs or brown outs as they call them today.  In general, good leadership will invest in the right people to implemented solid solutions for tomorrow and the future.

What policies or proposals would you support to help those who have lost homes and jobs to wildfire?
Respuesta de Lonnie Sortor:

I fully support holding the responsible party accountable.  In recent years we have seeen the increase of uncontrolled wildfires and the destruction left behind.  Companies such as PG&E have been found responsible by way of failure to maintain facilities or transmission lines.  These cases have been litigated and settlements reached.  However, the Attorney Generals have failed the people.  As the responsible party, PG&E should be required to cover all costs related to these fires.  That includes home replacement, recovery of personal expenses, and all other financial impacts suffered by each individual.  In addition, they should be required to fund fire insurance for all residents that no longer can be covered.  I support forcing insurance compaines to provide fire insurance for homewoners.  If they cancel your policy, our government needs to fight for the poeple on this matter.  It is the right thing to do.

California has some of the richest people in the country and some of the poorest. What policies or programs do you support to help those in the lower income categories in California?
Respuesta de Lonnie Sortor:

It must start with the education system.  We live in an age where blue collar workers (plumbers, electricians, welders, carpenters, etc.) earn an average wage of $50 to $60 per hour.  That equates to an annual income of roughly $100,000.  However, our school system no longer teaches vocational training to high school kids.  What is being taught is for kids to go to school, get a good education, go to college, then get a job in your field of study.  There is no focus on the middle class or lower income groups.  No all kids are cut out for college even if they could afford to attend.  When a student graduates from high school with basic vocational training in a blue collar field, now job opportunities open up outside of fast food or retail.  This is how you break the cycle and close the income gap.  Additionally, we need to stop rewarding those people who chose not to work and collect government assistance.  They are a burden on the tax payer.  All people need help once in a while, but making a career of living on government assistance is nothing more than criminal.
