The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
Yesterday, the LA Times published a Q&A with Delaine about her race for Governor which you can read here, but I wanted to share some highlights, and I hope you will share with your friends.
On the need for long-range planning
“I think it’s appalling that the state of California isn’t planning, and not only in K-12 and higher ed or preschool. It’s not planning in water, infrastructure. It’s not planning in so many areas. And there needs to be somebody who’s more nimble, who’s looking at the horizon instead of the hand in front of their face.”
The difference between an expense and an investment
“When I got to Sacramento I was really surprised that so many people treated everything as if it was an expense. I mean, that’s what I’ve said for years about the department of finance: They know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.”
It’s time for universal healthcare
“We’re spending more and getting less because there’s such a big profit for all kinds of entities, including the pharmaceutical industry. If we invested in high-quality care for all people we wouldn’t have the big expense of people getting really sick because they didn’t get early support and care.”
Path to Victory
“I don’t need the most money. I need enough money.”
