ENVIRONMENT and DECAYING INFRASTRUCTURE
you concerned about the environment? Your answer, of course, isn't everyone? Well, yes and no. We are, most of
us, not too awake when it comes to mother earth. Faithful, always been there, full of plenty for us to just take and
plunder. Or, is the earth having it's problems these days? Too much trash, too many cars, dirty water, dirty beaches,
too many bumps in the road, and on and on and on and on. The list is endless and can the Governor State ills?
NO! But, folks, we can. YES WE CAN. We must start with our own homes, our apartments, our streets,
our businesses and ourselves. We must start taking pride in this great State that has given us so much. NOT the
politicians......we can not look to them or depend on them. We each must become leaders in our block we live on and
in our own community of friends and neighbors. YES WE CAN improve the environment, starting with what we eat and drink
and how we handle our own trash. Can the State leaders create a ONE HUNDRED YEAR PLAN RIGHT NOW???? YES THEY CAN.
WE MUST TELL THEM, WE WANT A PLAN AND WE WANT TO SEE IT IN WRITING AND WE WANT TO SEE IT PUT INTO ACTION. NOW!!!
YES WE CAN..........YES WE MUST!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE A ONE HUNDRED YEAR PLAN FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND A
ONE YEAR PLAN, JUST ASK ME, I AM HERE WITH MANY IDEAS AND WAYS TO BETTER SERVE YOU!!!! TOGETHER, YES WE CAN!!!!
EDUCATION, HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE
to talk about these big topics? Education..........we should be the best in the world, we should have the best sports
and arts programs in the world, FREE, with books and high paid teachers. Do we??? NO!! But, we can. IF
we can send a man to the moon we can shift the priorities in this great City and make our YOUTH THE TOP PRIORITY. I
teach a Drama class at St. Gregory's elementary school where I went for 8 years of my youth. The children are bright
and hungry to learn. WE MUST BE FAITHFUL TO OUR YOUTH!!! Education must be our number one priority. Oh,
you say, it takes money, lots of money. Money is just dirty green paper, it takes energy, committment, enthusiasm, it
takes us........our time! Do not look to the City, the State or the Federal government. They are broke and broken
and have at every level violated the public trust. Look to yourself and to your neighbor. IF you elect me to be
your next Mayor I will work night and day for you to bring you the best......in education, health care and safety.........BUT
I will not be able to do it alone. YOU must lead. YOU must be active. YOU must be concerned. We must stop
depending on dishonest,self serving politicians who are overpaid and underworked. I have a plan.........let me share
it with you...............it involves our getting out of each and every war around the world, cutting back on the military.
We can no longer pursue a world empire.......and leave our cities and our children behind. Guns or butter? Always
the great dilemma. Who profits from war? The bankers and the armaments makers. The big oil companies. We
must stop depending on oil and on the present leadership. Dare, to take back your government, together, let us step
up and take back our city. I will not violate your trust if you let me serve you as your next Governor. My promise
to do all I can to improve education, health care and safety in OUR GREAT STATE.
HOMELESS MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
a few days ago I was in a small Mexican restaurant ordering a taco to go and a man walked in. He was obviously homeless,
he smelled bad, had no shoes on, his feet were very dirty. I looked closely at him and noticed he was not all that old.
Upon close inspection I noticed both his hands were missing, he also had one eye missing and it seemed his tongue was
chopped off. What happened to him? The waitress told him to leave, to get out, they could not serve him. He
was begging for a drink, a glass of water or juice, he could hardly speak. I stepped up, gave the waitress a $20 bill
and asked her to serve him and give him whatever he wanted and to give him the change. She gave him an orange drink
and the change. He walked out. When I was a Rotary International Graduate Scholar to India in my youth I saw many
homeless in Bombay (now Mumbai) and in Calcutta and in my travels and journey across India. This man looked as bad as
any homeless in India. In my youth growing up in the City of Angels I never saw a person like this....NEVER!!! What
is happening to this great City? 50,000 or more homeless women, children, men, vets, whole families and mentally ill
wandering our streets??!!! We can solve this problem.....we must.........we can.........RIGHT NOW. IF and when
elected Governor I will appoint a SPECIAL HOMELESS TASK FORCE TO END HOMELESSNESS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN ONE
YEAR...............YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT, ONE YEAR, 12 MONTHS. I will start with not moving into the Governor's mansion
and ask that it be sold and the funds put into a special fund that will be both private and public. I will also
give up my salary and take ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR while in office and have the Governor's salary directed to the charity
fund. I will contact the billionaires and millionaires in this great city and seek their help and support to immediately
end this problem by supplying the needed social workers and housing. TOGETHER WE WILL FEED, CLOTHE AND HOUSE OUR HOMELESS...........WE
CAN AND WE WILL..........MY PROMISE!!!!
STATE GOVERNMENT FRAUD AND CORRUPTION...MAJOR DEFICIT
What more can be said? This is terrible........each and every public official and bureaucrat is to
blame.....and each of us to allow this to happen. Our apathy, our being asleep, our not demanding the best has caused
this. It is not the economy. It is US!! And we can change this. Upon my election, IF you allow me to serve
you, I will ask each government member to take a cut in their salary, as an example that they care about this
State. I will ask every State worker to take an immediate cut in salary or retire. I will start immediately
upon entry to office an outside audit of each and every department to cut waste and fraud. But this will not be enough.
Expect services to be cut and expect less from your State. Yes, expect less. But not in the most important
ares.........health, safety, welfare and education. We will seek funds from every possible source and we will expand
and reach out to increase the tax base and new businesses. We will support expansion of new small businesses.I will
personally work for you night and day and reach out across the U.S. and around the globe to make the STATE OF CALIFORNIA THE
NUMBER ONE STATE IN THE WORLD................WE MUST ADMIT, WE ARE IN A STATE OF FINANCIAL CRISIS!!!
