Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • La vivienda asequible ha sido una de mis principales prioridades durante años y la necesidad solo continúa creciendo. Necesitamos construir viviendas más asequibles de manera inteligente, sin crear una expansión.
  • Desarrollo económico en la zona rural de California. Necesitamos poder vincular a los trabajadores debidamente educados y capacitados con buenos trabajos.
  • Agua: toda nuestra economía depende de ella. Debemos unirnos para encontrar soluciones inteligentes que alimenten a nuestra economía sin destruir el medio ambiente.

Anna M. Caballero is a woman of firsts. She was not only the first female Mayor elected in the 126-year history of the City of Salinas, but the first Latina elected to represent the 28th Assembly District in 2006. In 2011 she was hired by Governor Edmund G. Brown to serve as a member of his cabinet where she served as the Secretary of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency. Secretary Caballero’s mission mirrored her 34-year career fighting for working families. Caballero’s responsibility as Secretary included the oversight of departments charged with funding affordable housing, civil rights enforcement, banking and financial transactions, consumer protection, and the licensing of three million working professionals.

Prior to her appointment, Ms. Caballero served as a member of the California State Assembly for four years and Mayor of Salinas and council member for fifteen years; she carries with her local and state government expertise that made her uniquely qualified to help the Governor achieve his goals: to transform state government to be more efficient, open and transparent, and consumer, service oriented. In 2016 she ran for and won once again the position of Assemblymenber representing the 30th Assembly District.

A graduate of UCLA law school and UC San Diego, Caballero has dedicated her professional life to families in rural California. She first put her legal acumen to work representing farm workers as an attorney for California Rural Legal Assistance. Dedicated to representing working families at a price they could afford, Caballero and two colleagues formed the law firm of Caballero, Matcham and McCarthy, opening offices in Salinas and Hollister. The firm received numerous awards for excellence during its 25-year history, and Ms. Caballero personally received the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce’s most distinguished award, the Athena, for Entrepreneurial Excellence and commitment to the community.

Born to a family of copper miners from Arizona, Caballero has dedicated her working life to empower working families and to create opportunities for them and their children to be successful. While in the Assembly she received numerous awards for her work in youth violence prevention, protection of local government, support for public school construction, and water reliability and sustainability.

Prior to her election to the Assembly, Caballero established a non-profit organization dedicated to youth violence prevention. Partners for Peace helped parents and youth develop stronger family bonds and encourage healthy behavior. PFP focused on supporting literacy, after school activities, early childhood development, youth employment and high school dropout prevention strategies in partnership with other organizations.

Anna Caballero is a wife, mother of three adult children and grandmother of six. She is married to Attorney Juan Uranga who is currently enjoying retirement after representing farmworkers for over 30 years.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (5)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Anna Caballero:

This is one of my highest priorities and the list is long: targetted resources like bonds and fees on recording documents, increasing densities, inclusionary housing ordinances, not allowing cities and counties to avoid building affordable housing, not letting the NIMBIES win. My current bill is to create expedited processes so that the plans are reviewed magisterially so that local jurisdictions can’t say “no not here”. We should be requiring that cities build the affordable housing that their area needs.

Creative ways to do this include going back to the redevelopment agency concept to allow us to do things like prioritize building affordable housing above retail stores in the run downstrip malls that litter our cities and towns so that we can have walkable communities rather than more sprawl.
