Leticia Perez joined the show in studio to discuss her run for the open state senate district 16 seat. She is calls herself a "modern democrat," who has some conservative views.
[NOTE: we invited Andy Vidak numerous times to come on, and received numerous excuses why he couldn't come in. More candidates for the 16th district seat will be in next week.]
Being a Kern County supervisor, she supports drilling and fracking and says she will buck the democratic trend in Sacramento, as well as keeping Prop 13 (about property tax rates) in check.
Perez has been a big supporter of hiking the minimum wage to $9.25 (in 50 cent increments a year). She says the costs for education has gone up and people are still earning the same wage they made five years ago. My retort: if you haven't had a raise in five years, maybe you are working in the wrong job.
When asked about immigration, Perez supports comprehensive immigration reform, but does not want to break up families. She believes we need to enforce the borders. She thinks illegal immigrants leave in fear of being busted and deported.
She and her husband own a gun and would not support the numerous Sacramento measure to restrict guns and the second amendment.
This was the first time I met Leticia, and I like her as a person. But, every time I asked her a question, she went into her talking points. I don't want to cut her off when asking a question, but I'm not going allow BS either.
Get ready for a rise in tobacco taxes. Voters rejected this last year. But, since when do politicians respect voters?
