The following are the statements in the official Voter Information Guide for the Peace and Freedom Party statewide candidates running in the June 5 primary election. Some are short and to the point, as state law requires a high price per word for the statements, and they must be paid for before the candidate has even qualified for the ballot. The Voter Information Guide is mailed to every voter in the state by the Secretary of State about one month before the election. The Peace and Freedom Party candidates submitted statements that cover a broad range of issues relevant to the various offices.

altGloria Estela La Riva, PFP candidate for Governor
For too long, corporations, banks and the Pentagon have dominated society. The result: Half of all people live in or near poverty. Housing costs are skyrocketing. Immigrants get scapegoated. The prison population and police repression grow. The environment is being destroyed. Enough! Vote socialist! Get involved!

altC.T. Weber, PFP candidate for CA Secretary of State
Do you feel that your vote doesn’t count? No one in government is paying attention to your issues? You’re not alone. Polls show large majorities want a third party, but bipartisan election laws, private money, and the corporate media prevent this and deny representation for many of us, making democracy an illusion. We used to have six candidates on our general election ballot. Now, we only have two, often from the same party. That’s horrible! Let’s get rid of Top-Two and have more choices in our general elections. Many countries use Proportional Representation to elect multiple legislators from each district, with parties and independents elected in proportion to their number of votes. Fewer votes are wasted, gerrymandering ceases to be useful, there are higher voter turnouts, and those elected are more diverse. If a party gets half the votes it gets half the seats, not all of them. If a party or independent candidate gets 10% of the votes, that party or candidate gets 10% of the seats, not none of them. That way the majority is protected and minorities get voice and representation. Let’s replace Top-Two with Proportional Representation. Let’s get money out of politics. Money has corrupted our political system. Let’s establish a clean money type of equal public funding to those candidates who raise a base amount. Make these costly voter information guide statements free again. Please vote for me to show your support for fair and open elections.

Use taxes wisely providing for people’s needs instead of subsidizing wealthy corporations wasting billions of dollars.

altKevin Akin, PFP candidate for State Treasurer
I favor promoting and strengthening socially-owned economic units like cooperatives and credit unions, municipal utilities, public roads and transit. A publicly-owned State Bank would save enormous sums for the people.

To me, socialism means democratic control and social ownership of our economy. To win it, we must break the billionaires’ economic and political power.

altNathalie Hrizi, PFP candidate for Insurance Commissioner
Healthcare is a right! Abolish health insurance companies. State must create non-profit provider for all required insurance. Vote Hrizi 2018!

altJohn Thompson Parker, PFP candidate for U.S. Senate
“End capitalism—don’t enable it.” Trump’s deportations, police terror, giveaways to corporations, white supremacy, misogyny, poverty, are part of capitalism, and inspired by the previous administration’s record deportations and wars. Your vote for socialist Parker counts—it’s not supporting enablers, but instead inspiring a movement for revolutionary change.
