Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de LWV Fremont Newark Union City (3)

What are your plans for providing more affordable housing?
Respuesta de Lee Guio:

Union City already has an inclusionary law that requires builders to either include some affordable housing or pay for some affrodable housing when they construct a new development. In addition we have established a rent and tenant task force to study the best ways to approach this problem I plan to continue these efforts and to work with consultants and arbitrators in specific rent issues.

What is your plan to deal with unfunded liabilities such as pensions and deferred maintenance on roads?
Respuesta de Lee Guio:

The city is already dealing with the unfunded liabilites, primarily caused by the lack of investment income from PERS. Work with the finance group of the city staff to make sure we continue to pay down this liability over the next 15 years as planned. 

What do you believe is the responsibility of city council members when it comes to education and schools?
Respuesta de Lee Guio:

Work closely with the school board and suport them in their efforts to improve schools. Also, I plan to look at ways to get bussing back for our school children. This will reduce traffic and insure safe travels fo and from school. Lastly, work with the Planning Commission to insure that there are safe wolking and biking routes to and from school.

Preguntas de LWV Fremon Newark Union City (1)

What are your ideas for reducing traffic congestion on main roads?
Respuesta de Lee Guio:

Bussing of school children. Working with companies to increase ride sharing through the use of incentives. Utilize traffic calming techniqes to force "pass through" traffic back onto the freeways and not through our city. Push for use of alternative transportation when possible. Push to get the East West Connector completed as soon as possible and work to see if we cannot get the Dumbarton Rail back on track.
