Questions & Answers

Questions from The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Climate changes and the continuing drought worry many in California. What new strategies do you believe would ensure that California is able to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific. 
Answer from Tim Gorsulowsky:

California has been behind in developing programs to integrate new resourses for water storage. It is imperative that new resevoirs are built to maintain a larger water storage. Desalination plants are essential to ultimately provide water to the ever growing population in California. 

What are your top three fiscal priorities, recognizing the need to balance the state’s income with its spending?
Answer from Tim Gorsulowsky:

1. We need to reduce and/or eliminate programs that duplicate U.S. Government programs.

2. 

There are a variety of proposals to raise California's minimum wage. Many of these proposals face opposition from business groups who are concerned that they would kill jobs. Do you support increasing the minimum wage in California?  In your answer please explain your position on the relationship between wages and jobs with specific reference to the situation in your district. 
Answer from Tim Gorsulowsky:

No, wage base should be structured by region. Many regions in California have extremely high costs of living, while others are more affordable. Offering a regional base rate, we would better serve the community with costs while offering the employee a comenserate pay scale.

Many Californians are concerned about the influence of money in politics. What can the state legislature do to ensure that decision-making by elected officials is not swayed by moneyed interests at the expense of constituents?
Answer from Tim Gorsulowsky:

Reduce the expenditure and contribution limits made by PACS.
