Kalish Morrow will make a difference for Hanford if elected to the City Council by getting the government out of the way.
Many of Hanford’s problems are caused by government intrusion into the everyday lives of Hanford’s residents and businesses. Kalish has a platform based around cutting the red tape and getting government out of the way of development, give Hidden Valley Park to the people of Hanford to develop as they see fit, get government out of the way of community solutions to the homeless crisis, and focusing our priority on public safety.
Cut The Red Tape
Hanford is well known for being a town where it’s difficult to open a business with its heavy restrictions and costly fees having hampered its true potential. A change in how we do things would include reducing the red tape and increasing incentives. This is how we save our historic buildings, create a vibrant Downtown while allowing the rest of the town to thrive in unison.
Hidden Valley Park
For decades the people of Hanford have wanted to develop the second half of Hidden Valley Park into additional park space. Despite community uproar, the Council decided to list it as surplus property with the intention to have much of the land developed into additional housing. Hidden Valley belongs to the people and, in the spirit of how the first half was developed, should be allowed to organize a community effort to transform the second half into additional outdoor space.
California’s housing crisis is a result of overreaching government policy which has driven up costs of living, created a high demand on housing and has weakened our middle class. In short, the homeless issue is multi-faceted and the ones tackling the issue the best are privately ran organizations who are working on the front line. As a city, we can help by allowing more services like these to take place while also making sure the cost of living remains affordable with low taxes and fees.
We can also encourage more development by creating an easier and more affordable process to renovate upstairs living spaces in our historic buildings and allowing more innovative ideas such as tiny homes to take place.
California’s biggest cities as well as many of our neighboring towns such as Lemoore, Visalia, and Fresno are in fact Charter Cities.
The top priority of government is protecting its people and their property. The men and women of our Police and Fire Department put their lives on the line for us and our families often times going above and beyond to serve this community. It is our duty to make sure our first responders are always fully staffed and equipped with what they need to keep the public safe from theft, violence and disasters.
