Position Papers
Andrew Lachman on Jobs, the Arts, Creative Economy, Clean Tech and the Environment
As the former Consultant to the Joint Committee on the Arts for the state legislature and executive for Paramount Pictures, Andrew Lachman not only understands the importance of the Creative Sector to California's economy and education system, he's been a part of it. Clean Technology and conserving our resources are also key to growing jobs in California.
Andrew Lachman on Education: Our Future Starts Today
Public education is a fundamental right for every Californian and serves as the great equalizer for all Californians who want a better life for their children. Our public education system leaves behind the children most as risk while taking public money and putting it into private hands without accountability for spending those funds. It is a matter of justice that every Californian has access to a quality public school in their community.
