Let's be honest: there are a lot of problems to address in California right now. There are many issues to talk about, and no one can fix everything all at once: a responsible leader picks a handful of priorities to focus on.
Most politicians shape their priorities based on who gives them the most money. I will never do that - I'm running for office because of these priorities. Of course, I'll work on many other issues, but these priorities are the ones that are the most near and dear to my heart.
