Personal statement from Joe Guzzardi
I am a candidate for Governor for the simplest reason: the people of California deserve to hear about all of the issues affecting our state. And by "all of the issues" I include the impact of illegal immigration on California society.
Must We Finance Our Own Dispossession?
Why will California need at least 16 new classrooms, seven days a week for the next five years? To solve California's school crisis, politicians would have to go where they dare not - to a long, harsh look at our immigration policies.
Not-So-Smart Growth
Look around you today - wherever in California you may live - and point out any evidence you see of smart growth. California's growth has either converted prime agricultural land into housing tracts or land in-fill has created traffic, pollution and a vastly deteriorated quality of life. California is coping as best it can with overpopulation's burden. But - sad to say - that translates to not very well.
