Californians are facing tough economic times and it will be my first prioirty when elected to addess this issue as many ways as possible.California needs to put people back to work while addressing our environmental and infrastructure needs in renewable energy sources, mass transportation systems, and rebuilding our water systems. We already did get federal funding towards our high speed rail, and we should continue applying for more federal recovery dollars. As we address our environmental clean air targets, we need to build more solar and wind systems. This also requires expanding our power grid. Mass transportation is needed to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. I strongly support the high speed rail project. Many aspects of the California infrastructure are in need of repair, but the water systems including levees and the canals transporting water around the state need immediate attention to survive the earthquakes that will come and to reduce the amount of water we lose due to aging pipes!
California should investigate covering our water canals with solar panels. It's space already being used and won't require any new land purchase. It would also shade the water, reducing evaporation. And, we'll be there working on these canals anyhow.
