Preguntas y Respuestas

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 Marco Antonio “Tony” Leal:

Water is the key to prosperity.

As my #1 Priority, I want to immediately work to implement Kirk Sorensen's philosophy of Thorium Molten Salt Technology.

My vision is to produce enough water to make California lush and green.  California can once again become an exporter of agriculture.


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

Fix CALPERS.  We are paying people Top Dollar to stay home or take second or third jobs, making them the richest people in the world.  It doesn't exist anywhere else.  It shouldn't be paid for by California's poor either, nor the existing public employees.

We need to bring EDUCATION back to High Schools. College Bound rates aren't everything.  College completion rates paint a better picture.  Not everyone does well in college; so, we have to bring basic skills back to the classroom.  Wood shop.  Auto shop.  Accounting.  Driving Skills. Cooking. etc  We can save a ton of money on colleges by bringing these basic skills back to the schools; plus, this will prepare students for the real job market.

Many of our public works projects are for unions only.  This adds to the budgets and doesn't properly give taxpayers the best bang for their buck.  This why our budget is shot and are roads are full of potholes.

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 Marco Antonio “Tony” Leal:

Why do unions clamor for minimum wage hikes and then demand exclusions?  That should tell you EVERYTHING about minimum wages, from a layman's point of view.

I'm not in favor of minimum wages; but, I'm not in favor of inflation either.  People say they don't mind inflation, as long as wages keep up with inflation; but, when the rubber meets the road, wages don't keep up with inflation.

Raise the minimum wage.  It's not going to solve anything.  It's like changing spark plugs on a cracked cylinder block.  It doesn't get to the root problem.

If you want to solve the minimum wage problem, you must solve the inflation problem.  If we quit engineering money, people wouldn't be concerned with minimum wage.  Russia proved that.

Money in Politics

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?
