California's housing crisis is one of affordability — we simply are not building enough housing for middle and working class Californians. The state needs to prioritize, incentivize, and streamline development of affordable, transit-oriented housing in the urban core. We need the State to step up and invest in the construction of housing that working people need -- and the market is unwilling to build.

As the world's 5th largest economy, what we do in California matters. We've already committed to clean energy. Now let's commit to a carbon-neutral economy by investing in the green jobs that will rebuild our middle class and improve our quality of life.
Investments in early childhood education and development are critical to ensuring that all children are provided with a foundation for learning and success in the later in life. It's time for our state to invest in high-quality, publicly-funded universal preschool for all children in California.
More than a dozen states have implemented public financing of elections to reduce the influence of special interest money in the electoral process. It's time for the super-majority of Democrats in the State Legislature to put an end to the legalized corruption that pulls the strings in Sacramento.
In addition to contamination of water tables, we now know that fracking sites are likely leaking massive amounts of methane -- a dangerous greenhouse gas whose global warming potential is 86 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. It's time for California to join New York, Maryland, Vermont, and Washington and stop this environmentally disastrous practice in our state.
Roughly 2.7 millions Californians don't have health insurance. This is unacceptable in a state as prosperous as ours. California needs to lead the nation in making universal healthcare a reality for all residents. It's time to elect candidates whose priority is the health of the people, not the profitability of insurance companies.
