My Top 3 Priorities

  • Money out of politics: I believe money is the greatest corrupting influence in our Democracy. Removing money from our politics is my top priority, and keeps our politicians honest. This can be a battle of ideas, not 'who takes the most money wins'.
  • I want to provide Medicare for all residents of California. We pay around the same cost as every other developed nation for our socialized medicine as a share of GDP. However, we spend vastly more for private insurance. Let's save billions.
  • We need to reduce incarceration rates by removing the private bail bond system, and switching it to the Federal system. This is based on the severity of the crime, employment, and arrest record. This lowers the recidivism rate and saves tax dollars.

Experience

Biography

 

My name is Blake Carter, and in 1,000 words in can be very hard to encapsulate oneself. The truth is, I am lot of things to a lot of different people. To my clients whom I serve that buy and sell properties with me, I’m a trusted real estate advisor and economist. To the people I meet every day on the campaign trail; I am empathetic and understand their pain and suffering. To the kids and adults which I have I taught baseball, drum lessons, swimming lessons, or guitar lessons; I’m a role model and example who listens and helps compartmentalize information that needs contextual understanding. To my friends on the outside looking in; I am the one who people come to for advice on what they dealing with every day on this big rock we call earth. I’ve earned every title I just mentioned above for one reason; I listened to my mentors and took from them the best thoughts and insights they had to offer humanity. I built myself by being a student of human behavior, and caring deeply about understanding what we all need to live happy, healthier lives despite the weight that is on our shoulders. To you reading this right now, I am concerned citizen. I didn’t come from money, my family immigrated here like everyone else who is not an Native American. I understand you, and I want to work for you.
