TED CRISELL FOR GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA...CRISELL PLATFORM AND ISSUES

MAJOR ISSUES IN CAMPAIGN FOR GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA

ENVIRONMENT and DECAYING INFRASTRUCTURE
 
Are 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
 
How 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
 
Just 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!!!
