Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Chavez's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Assuring quality education for students at every level should be fundamental to California. Sadly, our state’s commitment to education has dramatically declined. Public schools are starved for resources and our community colleges and universities have seen dramatic and unacceptable fee increases."
  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Good jobs are a source of economic security, access to healthcare and the foundation for personal dignity. I’ve run a small business and created jobs in my own community. When a small business wants to open in our neighborhood, we should get the bureaucracy out of the way and help them."
  • Environmental Protection
Excerpt: "I am currently fighting to stop the pollution arising from the Northeast LA Metrolink Central Service yard where more than 30 locomotives are serviced every day. We cannot allow a hazardous environment to negatively impact the health of our children and other residents."
  • Public Safety
Excerpt: "As a long-time resident of the district I have fought aggressively to keep gangs out of our neighborhoods, to improve lighting in areas where criminals might dwell, and to make sure that our children are safe in our schools, parks and other recreation areas."
  • Health Care
Excerpt: "Decent health care should be a right in California not a privilege. Health care should never be available for only the wealthy. That’s why I have fought all of my adult life to make sure that everyone has access to affordable health care."
