Biografía

My name is Katherine Daigle, and I like to humbly think of myself as a self-made American success story. From decidedly humble beginnings, after years of hard work and schooling allowing me to achieve success in my professional career. My family, who are my joy and my single greatest accomplishment. They embody the spirit of self-determination I so cherish; my husband is an equal partner who encourages my accomplishments, while our grown daughter is a biochemistry graduate with a MS – translational research scientist and will be furthering her education in medicine.

I have an MBA; and a strong background in business, law, finance and local government. My professional career includes serving as a legal and finance executive, a Vice President for more than twenty years for a large electronic healthcare data firm in Irvine. Founder of two small businesses KND Legal Consulting LLC and Paralegal Outsourcing & Associates. I believe I bring a practical and pragmatic business perspective to the State.

 My civic organization, I have been elected in three election beginning since 2012 as a Director for Woodbridge Village which has more than 30,000 residents. And an advisory board member to the facility, finance and recreation committees As a Director we work with the Irvine Police Department (IPD) to inhibit crime within our community, position the community as a model for other HOA’S by establishing a policy of no toxic pesticide in our parks and recreation facilities, we collaborate with the City of Irvine and Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) to establish programs in an effort to work within the boundaries given by the  California Department of Fish and Wildlife to protect the community and its wildlife.  The preservation and the integrity of the community is an integral part and in a cooperative spirit working with the developers on projects that may impact “quality of life” to some within the community. I am actively involved in the Village interests at government and local hearings and specifically in the negotiations with the developers in response to opportunities ahead.

Thank you, Katherine Daigle, for Central Committee 74th District

Filosofía política

It has always amazed me that, throughout the long and checkered history of humanity’s experiment with the institution of government; politics have traditionally been a man’s game. Even old Athens, credited and lauded as the ancient birthplace of democracy, egregiously marginalized women, extending the cherished rights to vote and otherwise publicly participate only to its male citizens. As we have mercifully begun to enter into more tolerant and enlightened times, the long-standing male preoccupation with excluding females from social administration has only become more difficult to comprehend. Reading over the annals of history, I have never understood it in any period. For it is no exaggeration to state that where women have been allowed to play a part in government – and, in many cases, even despite being actively blocked from doing so – they have thrived, as have their societies.

It is no different today, in the modern United States of America, and it is here that there can be no better example of the capabilities of women as public servants. It is time to change the culture, wade into the mainstream and articulate why gender equity is a winner for everyone.

As a public servant, I will support a small, constitutionally limited government that reins in runaway spending and lives within its means. I believe in reducing regulations, bureaucracy, and the various other inefficiencies of government in order to stimulate real growth and restore the State’s economy. I will examine public benefits system, and similar avenues of public spending that have led to unsustainable debt obligations for our communities and the state of California.

As a Republican woman, I support minimal taxation, the return of taxes paid in excess, and strict limits on the size and scope of government. I believe in free enterprise and the entrepreneurial spirit, unmolested by regulation. And when it comes to schooling, I regard education as the foundation of any successful person, because it’s such a huge reason that I have managed to be successful, and I strongly believe in providing for the learning of all children.  

 

 

1.      One of the most fundamental duties of government is to advance public safety and welfare by creating and enforcing laws. Implementing visionary planning, advanced technology and enforce our State and Federal laws will provide Safe and Secure communities.  

 

2.      Freedom and free enterprise “JOBS” should be the guiding force; it is the American way of life, not government regulation. It’s time to put the taxpayers first!

3.      Infrastructure failure – traffic, roads, and transportation, our “municipalities” have successfully built

Common Core Math: 2+ 2 Might, Maybe, Kinda, Sorta, = 5?

Summary

Common Core -the idea, ostensibly, is to establish a standard to which all schools, regardless of the state in which they operate, should strive – and that standard is one that will allow graduates to weather college courses or enter the workforce at once. Unfortunately, like so many things the federal government attempts to do with good intentions, the reality of this initiative has already proven a colossal failure. 

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a set of educational milestones in English and Mathematics that (in the initiative’s authors’ opinions) K-12 students should be able to meet by certain times. A child who graduates third grade, for example, should be able to formulate an English sentence or solve a simple math problem up to a given level. The idea, ostensibly, is to establish a standard to which all schools, regardless of the state in which they operate, should strive – and that standard is one that will allow graduates to weather college courses or enter the workforce at once.

Unfortunately, like so many things the federal government attempts to do with good intentions, the reality of this initiative has already proven a colossal failure. That’s because Common Core doesn’t just seek to set goals for students; it fundamentally rewrites the ways in which schools are to educate them. What’s more, it does this in ways that are almost comically inefficient and frustrating.

To illustrate this, let’s look at a math problem. Even if you can do it in your head, close your eyes and imagine writing out the solution for thirty-two minus twelve. It’s pretty easy: We have 32 on top and 12 under it. Then we subtract 2 from 2 and 1 from 3, and we’re left writing 20 – the correct difference. It’s a simple equation, but the only way it could really get much more complicated is if a bottom digit were ever greater than one above it; then we would have to “borrow”, which can be an intimidating concept for children to learn, but is ultimately pretty straightforward and easily understood.

But the same problem turns into a nightmare under the Common Core system. Instead of a single line of work, now the student is supposed to write four lines, each containing its own equation. We get calculations like 12 + 3 and 20 + 10, each of which at least contains numbers that appear in the problem or are the answer, but then there are the bizarre exercises of 15 + 5 and 30 + 2, neither of which seem at all helpful.

What’s more, teaching this ridiculous system is proving to be a sublime frustration at homework time – for parents as well as children. If you don’t know how to work the process and your child doesn’t understand it, how are either of you supposed to make any headway? One frustrated father, sarcastically answering a word problem that instructs children to “write a letter to Jack telling him what he did right, and what he should do to fix his mistake”, wrote:

“Don’t feel bad. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering which included extensive study in differential equations and other higher math applications. Even I cannot explain the Common Core mathematics approach, nor get the answer correct. In the real world, simplification is valued over complication.” 

 

And that, if you’ll pardon the word choice, is the core of the problem here. Common Core’s system may ultimately work, but it uses such a drawn-out, cumbersome process to solve even the simplest equations that it is of virtually no value in the real world. The argument in its support is that it teaches students to understand math more completely, instilling not only the steps necessary to reach a correct answer but the fundamentals of the relationships between numbers. Unfortunately, all that’s really happening is that students are pulling their hair out and giving up – test scores have plummeted since Common Core’s inception. This is especially true among those who already trailed their peers before, and who can least afford a substandard education: Poorer children.

Of course, stories also persist that Common Core’s math system does NOT always work. Anecdotal tales have circulated the notion that students are able to claim that 2 + 2 = 5, and get full credit for “creative thinking” so long as they convincingly explain their use of the mandatory process to arrive at that answer. There’s just one minor hiccup: Two plus two does NOT equal five – never has, and never will. Moreover, mathematical answers are not subject to gradation; they are absolute. Each one is either perfectly right, or completely wrong. American scientists and engineers did not put people on the Moon by believing in some hazy middle ground in which two plus two might maybe kinda sorta equal five – and teaching our children that that actually is possible is a profound disservice to them and to their futures.

Homelessness – “Paying It Forward” In America

Summary

I heard this statement on an old television show and it reminded me of what are they really asking – and what are we hearing “I give you some wood and I ask you for a place for a TV. INSTEAD you build me a cathedral. I don’t want a cathedral. I like where I live. I just want a place to put my TV.”

About 2,000 years ago, a very wise man said that we would always have the poor among us. For twenty centuries, now, his words have proven prophetic everywhere, and unfortunately, the United States of America is no exception. Even in the richest nation on Earth, many people struggle with poverty, and with homelessness. This is not always their fault; many of these people are simply down on their luck, having lost a job and running into trouble finding another, or suffering an unexpected medical crisis that drains their resources. But however they get there, the result is all too often the same: Descending into hopelessness and despair, and in some cases, resorting to deplorable, self-destructive acts in a desperate attempt to stay alive. This isn’t a life for anyone, least of all a US citizen.

 

Unfortunately, the way we treat these people isn’t much better. Many people are uncomfortable around the homeless, shunning their company

(behavior of which that wise man from 2,000 years ago wouldn’t much approve). For reasons that may have nothing at all to do with them, the homeless become outcasts, right within their own communities. The homeless themselves often come to adopt this mindset, as it is foisted upon them by so many others.

 

The benefits they reap simply by having their own place are immense. Not only does it give a person the sense of community and belonging with their neighbors that they lack on the street, but it can lead to a profound change in character as well. Many homeless people come to see themselves as no good because of their circumstances, and so do not care about committing crimes or doing other horrible things because they do not care about themselves. Having a place to live can change all that, unlocking the basic goodness and morality that is inside them by causing them to value themselves. It gives them stability, and stability is key.

I heard this statement on an old television show and it reminded me of what are they really asking – and what are we hearing “I give you some wood and I ask you for a place for a TV. You build me a cathedral. I don’t want a cathedral. I like where I live. I just want a place to put my TV.”

 

It is not that we can’t help them. We have everything that we need to do it – empty buildings in which they could live, farms, even undeveloped plots of land that could be a home to someone. The problem is that we all struggle under a bloated, inefficient political government that can’t seem to effectively perform its function: Serving the people.

 

That doesn’t mean giving handouts. It is important to be there for people when they need the most help, but government entitlements can easily turn into poverty traps. Think about that for a moment. If you were getting $1000 per month for free from the government for being unemployed and poor, would you take an $800 a month starter job that would make the monthly government checks stop? Some people would, but it is hard to expect anyone to make that decision (especially if they have a family to care for), and it’s understandable why they might not. That’s why we have to be careful about simply giving things away. Give someone a fish every day, and he may never bother to learn how to fish for himself.

 

What the government can do is help these people get back on their feet. It’s “a hand up, not a handout”, as the saying goes. We can assist them in finding jobs, we can encourage the growth of businesses in order to create jobs, and we can reduce tax burdens on everyone who is just trying to make it. Major corporations in the private sector make efficient, effective plans for projects that will not come to fruition for twenty or thirty years, sometimes more; why can’t the government help its own people now? Maybe because the politicians in charge of it aren’t as good at planning as they’d like us to believe.

 

But let’s not start thinking government alone is the answer. That’s almost never true. When you think about the problem of preventing homelessness, you realize that we can do it because we have done it before. Why didn’t we have so many homeless people a hundred years ago? It’s because we built solid local communities with strong traditional values based on neighbors helping neighbors. Men and women worked good, well paying jobs that strengthened the economy, by paying it forward to their local communities for the benefit of the community and allowed them to provide for their families, women and men watched the local children (not just their own) – and those children, when they were old enough to be out of diapers, did household chores that taught them responsibility and reduced the workload on the adults. Everyone pitched in, so no one was alone. Everyone was satisfied because the community felt it was never a handout and the “homeless” were never really homeless. We didn’t let our own fail.

 

And that’s the real solution here, far more so than any government intervention. We need to go back to the unbreakable State and local communities that kept us strong and made us look out for each other. If we give people hope, they can never fall into hopelessness. Let’s prioritize the homeless and help them, not shun them. We may always have the poor, but if we ignore them and refuse to show compassion for people who are our neighbors, then it is we who are bankrupt – in spirit.

 

The Political Might Of Women Today In Politics

Summary

“The mounting issues facing our country are complex. If we’re going to solve these problems, we can no longer afford to leave the talent of half our nation out of the conversation" by. Kerry Healey.

This has been part of my platform in my Campaign because it is so important, now than ever before.

It has always amazed me that, throughout the long and checkered history of humanity’s experiment with the institution of government; politics have traditionally been a man’s game. Even old Athens, credited and lauded as the ancient birthplace of democracy, egregiously marginalized women, extending the cherished rights to vote and otherwise publicly participate only to its male citizens. As we have mercifully begun to enter into more tolerant and enlightened times, the long-standing male preoccupation with excluding females from social administration has only become more difficult to comprehend. Reading over the annals of history, I have never understood it in any period. For it is no exaggeration to state that where women have been allowed to play a part in government – and, in many cases, even despite being actively blocked from doing so – they have thrived, as have their societies.

It is no different today, in the modern United States of America, and it is here that there can be no better example of the capabilities of women as public servants. It is time to change the culture, wade into the mainstream and articulate why gender equity is a winner for everyone.

I am a living example of what women can do when we work hard, and I want to help other women realize that they can do the same. There is no limit to the benefits society stands to reap when women unleash their potential in the realm of politics.

I understand the importance of the American can-do independent spirit which made this nation great; this is why I promote it as a core value and philosophy. And it is precisely because women have so much to offer with their talent, ingenuity, and great leadership that this motivation becomes so important. This is the essential point missed over so much of human history, and which modern society is starting to realize. For to disenfranchise women, shutting them out of the political processes that govern their own lives and those of their families, is not only to do an injustice to them but to rob civilization itself of the brilliance of its own citizenry. One of my favorite quotes is attributed to Kerry Healey, the 70th Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts. In it, Healey addresses the issue of women’s traditional disempowerment in politics and the importance of acknowledging them when she says, “The mounting issues facing our country are complex. If we’re going to solve these problems, we can no longer afford to leave the talent of half our nation out of the conversation.”

In the grand scheme of history, society is only beginning to understand the wisdom of these words. And after thousands of years of waiting, I must say: it’s about time.
