Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Holmes listed the following themes on her campaign website:[4]

  • Drug policy
Excerpt: "I support Colorado’s lead and pledge to push for the legalization of recreational marijuana use in all 50 states as an economic imperative. California has already legalized medical use. Removing prohibition will bring this State millions of dollars in revenue, and thousands of jobs- just as it has in Colorado and Washington State. Colorado has been on target with their projections, with 1 Billion for the first fiscal year in revenue. The first 400 million should go directly to building schools, then I propose that California split revenue between education and a 21st century light rail system. This will in turn, significantly decrease Cartel interest on this side of the border. Americans as a majority support legalization, which will end confusion over a patchwork of state laws."
  • Open government
Excerpt: "District face time should increase by 30%. Far too much time is spent with special interests and fundraising with little time left for dealing with issues in home districts. "
  • Education
Excerpt: "Budget reallocation is necessary in order to re-prioritize education over political interests while partnering with sustainable community, non-profit organizations and faith based programs to bolster the success of our students."
