Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Lee's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Veterans Policies
Excerpt: "Service members and military families need all the backing we can offer to them. These “benefits,” however, are really commitments being honored, not government goodies being given out. Our country made promises to our service members for their sacrifices, and reductions and delays in providing them to veterans – such as opening the Fresno veterans home – are unconscionable."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Leverage the region’s agriculture and related industries and natural competitive advantages to diversify the economy and increase job opportunities. Newer industries, for example, those associated with High Speed Rail or alternative energy which receive billions of dollars of federal funds, offer tremendous job potential as long as the projects are fiscally sound and sustainable."
  • Water
Excerpt: "Bringing additional acre-feet of water and increasing the percent allocation in the short-term while exploring long-term storage solutions is the only way to meet the vital needs of agriculture while balancing statewide demands."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "We cannot continue waiting year after year to address this issue. Rebuilding a strong economy on the back of a broken immigration system makes no sense. Immigrants contribute greatly to our economy as workers, consumers, business owners and taxpayers. Our nation deserves a workable program that provides a legal path for immigration that does not sacrifice security."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "Our people deserve to breathe clean air and drink healthy water. Fighting for sensible solutions to basic needs for a good standard of living is something we must do for ourselves now and for our children’s tomorrow."
