Questions & Answers

Questions from The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (6)

Federal Carbon Tax

Do you support the use of a federal carbon tax on the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the use of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil and natural gas) as a means to both slow climate change and to reduce the deficit?  Why or why not?

No answer provided.
Gun Control

What is your stand on gun control laws at the federal level?  Please explain the reasoning behind your position. 

No answer provided.
Trans Pacific Partnership

Is the Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement good for California?  Would you vote to support it?  Please explain why or why not.

No answer provided.

At the federal level, should recreational marijuana be legalized? Why or why not?

No answer provided.
The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?
Answer from Jason Kraus:

Our current "water shortages" are due to over-population and the lack of critical planning.  Continued housing programs including high density dwellings throughout the Golden State without the creation of reservoirs and/or dams is simply irresponsible behavior of those elected to protect the citizens of California. "If you build it they will come".  Building homes without sustainable water is one of many horrendous decisions made over the last 25 years.  This combined with the millions if not billions of gallons of water being flushed into the Pacific Ocean is another example of waste and the lack of respect those in government have shown to the citizenry. 


Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why. 

No answer provided.

Official Statement

Researched by Voter’s Edge
Source: California Secretary of State

Each election Californians are saddled with the same problems, same issues, and same faces. Politicians beg for our money making promises that will never be kept. We must return to basics. Remove all forms of income tax which will increase employment, ignite our economy, and protect our way of life. I have refused all campaign contributions, will not accept a salary, and will only serve ONE term. I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I am an American . . . just like you. Jason Kraus.
