I taught in our public schools for twenty-five years. Neither parents, students nor teachers want the constant testing which has taken the place of real education. The Business Roundtable promotes strict standards and school district takeovers to avoid providing funding or dealing with racial and economic inequality.
I served as a Rent Board Commissioner in Berkeley and worked to pass the Just Cause for Eviction ordinance in Oakland. Housing is a necessity which we must provide for all. We must protect people who live in foreclosed properties instead of bailing out the banks.
We need to place strict limits on all pollution now, to safeguard health and prevent climate disaster. The state legislature promotes a "cap and trade" policy which lets corporations buy and sell the right to pollute. Our right to breathe and the future of our planet require real regulation.
We have enough wealth to provide quality housing, health care and education to everyone in California. Most of us care about each other and want to protect our environment. But we are governed by people who want tax breaks and maximum profits for big business.
I support Oakland teachers who are demanding that the Port of Oakland help pay for the schools and Richmond residents who want Chevron to stop polluting and pay more taxes. The Peace and Freedom Party wants to mobilize working class people to gain ownership and control over our resources. Together we can provide for our needs and create a future for all.

Withdraw all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan now. Stop scapegoating immigrants. Provide free health care for everyone. Regulate corporations to protect workers and the environment. Let's decide what we need and use our country's wealth to pay for it.
