California spends more per capita on homelessness than any other state and has the worst outcomes in all of America. The number of homeless in California has increased 31% since 2010 even as the number of homeless in the rest of U.S. has declined 18%. The reason? Governor Gavin Newsom invited them to come here.
Crime is out-of-control. California’s cities are in a crisis of chaos. The reasons are obvious. California’s cities are failing to enforce the law. Radical Left “defund the police” activists have demoralized the police. And Governor Gavin Newsom is failing to protect our children and citizens.
California’s schools are failing our children. Just 30% of public school children in California are proficient in math; less than 50% are proficient in reading. This is unacceptable. The reason for this is obvious: somehow teachers’ unions and elected officials forgot that schools are supposed to be, first and foremost, for educating children, not coddling adults. Governor Gavin Newsom works for the teachers’ unions, not for the children, or their parents.
Energy, Water, Housing
Energy is life. Abundant and cheap energy means we can have abundant and cheap water. As governor I’m going to end the unnecessary war between city-dwellers, farmers, and environmentalists. With abundant energy we can create abundant fresh water through water storage, water recycling, and water desalination. We can have green lawns, water for farmers, and water for fish. I have the vision for how to do this.
