Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Answer from Mohammad-Ali Mazarei:

Cut regulations on home builders and get rid on nonsense mandates placed on new construction. ie solar panels. 

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Answer from Mohammad-Ali Mazarei:

Civility needs to be addressed at home.  Parents need to take more responsibility for their children's actions.  A little civility goes a long away but it seems that thanks to the media and the race to get the highest "likes" or "Clicks" we have stopped caring about being civil.

Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow that your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Answer from Mohammad-Ali Mazarei:

We must STOP wasteful spending on the Governor’s “Bullet Train” and focus on meaningful projects that enhance our quality of life such as water storage and supply, not on a train to nowhere.   

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Answer from Mohammad-Ali Mazarei:

Education K-12. I want to pass laws that support our K-12 teachers who impact the first 13 years of our children’s education. I believe that education should work to improve the lives of every child; even those who are not going on to University.
