Biography

 

I always wanted to be a pediatrician. My undergraduate degree was in psychology with an emphasis in physiological psychology and premed. I went on to graduate school and got a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Healthcare Administration. It was during this time I also got my California real estate broker's license that gave me the flexibility to work independently rather than be confined to racial lines still lingering in the real estate field. My plans to go to medical school were interrupted when my then 20-month-old son was diagnosed with cancer and had to go through 38 months of chemotherapy. I went on to law school and then jumped into politics because I was not content to sit on the sidelines and complain and do nothing.

 

The education I have been blessed to acquire comes with a responsibility - the responsibility in my mind is to work to better society rather than work to enrich myself.

 

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (5)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Answer from Gregory Edward Cheadle:

The power grid would be the first priority. WIth respect to the roads, bridges, etc., we must first deal with the assault on our acquifers which is causing the land to sink, leading to the crumbling of our roads.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Answer from Gregory Edward Cheadle:

The status quo is unacceptable. Rewarding people for healthy lifestyles is the only way we can have a viable healthcare system that will benefit all Americans. A country that allows for the prevelance of alcoholics and alcohol abuse, legal and illegal drug addicts and abuse, gluttony, and obesity, cannot sustain a viable healthcare system.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House.
Answer from Gregory Edward Cheadle:

The immigration laws that are already on the books. We don't need more laws on the sublect.

 

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of Californians and the federal water project infrastructure in California?
Answer from Gregory Edward Cheadle:

Agriculture in California is responsible for 80 percent of the water used, yet it represents only 2 percent of the economy. I would therefore support agricultural products that are not water intense.

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Answer from Gregory Edward Cheadle:

One cannot legislate civility. One must lead by example.

Political Beliefs

 

I am an 1856 Republican. In the 1856 era, White Republicans were killed along with the Black slaves they sought to free. The point being, the 1856 Republicans were committed to principle, fairness, justice, and equality. The modern day Republican is sorely lacking in these qualities. I am a strong believer in the Constitution of the United Sates as the rule of law. Moreover, I believe in individual responsibility.

 

The two party system is ruinous for the country in that it is nothing more than a two-headed snake that is manipulated by corporate interests. We must get money out of politics. I have proposed that for congressional races that no money should come from outside the district and that the maximum contribution to a candidate should be $1000 per entity.

 

With respect to healthcare, I am a proponent of prevention of disease and disease states and personal responsibility. Mandatory vaccination should not be allowed unless exemptions for religious and personal beliefs are allowed. Moreover, pharmaceutical companies must be held accountable, hence liable for vaccine injuries. Parents and guardians should be able to sue the vaccine manufacturers directly. Also with healthcare funding, alcohol and tobacco companies should be taxed to the level their products impact the health and welfare of the population.
