Position Papers
Human Rights: Creating a Culture of Life
After attending the various caucuses during the State Democratic convention in March, I've really had to do some soul searching and address the need for consistency in my own conscious and public approach on these delicate issues that are always used as wedge issues in campaigns. Recognizing my role as leadership within the Party and that relationship to the most recent platform that the Party has adopted, I feel it is necessary to really clarify my positions in writing.
High Desert Corridor, Inland Ports and Land Use
While most of us all agree that both the Inland Port and the High Desert Corridor projects will provide a major economic boost to the high desert region, the question at the forefront of my mind is at what cost?
Community Investments in Education
The Antelope Valley War On Gangs: The politics of distraction-Are we attempting to miss an opportunity to address profound issues of major community and economic development by way of an integrated approach to human development that captures the creativity and potential of communities, schools, and workplaces or, will we be intent on having our attention diverted again only to gain temporary relief from the pains of rapid growth and poor planning?
