Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Abordar la crisis de asequibilidad de vivienda.
  • Luchar por los derechos de inmigrantes y civiles en medio de los abusos inhumanos y racistas de la administración de Trump.
  • Abogar por un mayor acceso a una mejor educación asequible o capacitación laboral.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Mike A. Gipson:

Addressing California’s affordable housing crisis is one of my top priorities as a legislator. I supported SB 2, the Building Homes and Jobs Act, which will build safe and affordable apartments and single-family homes while creating 29,000 jobs for every $500 million invested in affordable housing. Ensuring smart land development to limit urban sprawl and reforming Prop 13 for commercial properties will improve housing access and affordability as well. If re-elected, I will continue to fight for more affordable housing across California and in the 64th District.

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Mike A. Gipson:

As a longtime public servant, I’ve worked all my life for the good of the community, and throughout my career, I have been a problem solver who brings a wide collection of voices to the table to solve big issues. If I am re-elected, I am committed to continuing to partner with people of all backgrounds to help ensure that the people in the 64th have a voice that can effectively advocate for their interests.


Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow that your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Respuesta de Mike A. Gipson:

I am incredibly proud to have voted for SB 32 and will continue working to make sure our state will meet our goals on carbon emissions. I have always been and will continue to be an ardent supporter of efforts to accelerate California’s commitment to protecting the environment and investing in green, renewable energy sources. With the world’s 6th largest economy, it is important that we are a leader not solely on the national stage in combating climate change, but also on the international stage. Investing in R/D and improving marketing campaigns on the rapidly decreasing costs of clean energy will ensure California paves the way.  Additionally, I will continue to fight for better water conservation infrastructure to ensure that water needs of Californians are adequately addressed.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Respuesta de Mike A. Gipson:

I have advocated against rising tuition costs and pushed the state to look at and address the growing student loan crisis. In the Assembly I was proud to vote for the California College Promise which passed and will guarantee one year of free community college for qualified California students. I’m proud of my work in the State Legislature to invest more resources directly into the classrooms and establishing a working group to bring back Career Technical Education back to our K-12 schools, but there is still significant work to be done to increase our investment in education. We must continue to combat our teacher shortage, decrease classroom sizes, offer universal pre-K, and work to make higher education affordable and accessible to all Californians.
