Chiang on why he’s running
“Everything that was afforded to me, I want to make sure that the next generation gets in multiples.”
Chiang on housing
“As Governor, I would push for a $9 billion bond, we need more money.”
Chiang on pensions
“It’s a tall challenge going forward. We need to stop kicking the can down the road, stop putting it on the credit card, and actually paying up these obligations.”
Chiang on Proposition 13
“We’ve seen some of the abuses in Prop 13. The famous case is the Dell case. That’s an example of the abuse of the process that needs to be changed.”
