My Top 3 Priorities

  • Free speech. Public colleges must obey the First Amendment. UC San Diego spent $800,000 in taxpayer funds to squash a student newspaper, losing in the Ninth Circuit in Koala v. Khosla. Unacceptable.
  • Free college. Every public college that enacts a student conduct code that complies with the First Amendment will be tuition free.
  • Free speech again. Seriously, it's a huge problem.

Questions & Answers

Questions from 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.
Answer from Daniel Watts:

Free college. The best way to become a homeowner is to make enough money to buy or rent a home. The best way to make more money is to get a college degree. If we lower the cost of a college degree, we start a chain reaction allowing more people to afford housing.
