Preguntas de The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Climate changes and the continuing drought worry many in California. What new strategies do you believe would ensure that California is able to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific. 
Respuesta de Tony Teora:


Using smart technologies with sensors and controllers to maximize water efficiency. Recycling water, using drip irrigation and better storage. We also need to make sure we give incentives to grow crops that make sense (organics use less water), and allow farmers to be profitable. Food security is important to the state and country. We need to find smart ways to store our water. We also need to be creative and consider new farming methods that use methods like hydroponics.


Many Californians are concerned about the influence of money in politics. What can the state legislature do to ensure that decision-making by elected officials is not swayed by moneyed interests at the expense of constituents?
Respuesta de Tony Teora:


Money is what controls today’s parties and politics. It has clearly corrupted the system to the point that many people no longer believe that a politician supports the people, and the voters are mostly correct. Because of special interest money, politics in the US does not really look out for the middleclass, which is why the middleclass is shrinking. It will be difficult to get other legislators to vote money out of politics, but some small battles can be made by laws to limit corporate contributions, and laws on transparency. There is a trend with voters wanting to elect officials who will make changes to reduce the influence of money. I think state laws limiting corporate, special interest money would be a great start.


There are a variety of proposals to raise California's minimum wage. Many of these proposals face opposition from business groups who are concerned that they would kill jobs. Do you support increasing the minimum wage in California?  In your answer please explain your position on the relationship between wages and jobs with specific reference to the situation in your district. 
Respuesta de Tony Teora:


Although I admit it sounds good to many people to say just force companies to raise wages thinking that will move people out of poverty, the reality is that it will reduce working hours, the amount of jobs available, and shut down some businesses. Government can force companies to raise wages but they can’t force a company to make a profit or stay alive. I’ve spoken to many businesses in my district and I am almost universally told it will hurt their operations even to the point of making some close shop.


What are your top three fiscal priorities, recognizing the need to balance the state’s income with its spending?
Respuesta de Tony Teora:

#1 Jobs: Want to lower burdens on business and create incentives for companies to create good paying jobs. This will also increase overall revenue to the state because companies will move into California, add to the tax base and grow the economy.

#2 Lower Taxes & Regulations: Want to lower taxes on the middleclass and reduce regulations for business.

#3 Reduce Poverty:  By lowering taxes and regulations, and creating more good paying jobs, we can move people out of poverty.
