Mr. Bonta, why are inserting yourself in the middle of student debt forgiveness? Hasn't the Governor already spoken on this subject.

Mr. Bonta why are you forming a posse to hound California's cities regarding their RHNA requirements when the State Auditor has ruled that the process used to determine those RHNA numbers is flawed when compare to such studies as the Embarcadero Institute?

Mr. Bonta why are you not following up with trying to recover some of the $25 billion in fraud perpetrated on the EDD by people currently in prison including death row. If you were to recover only 1% of that money, it would mean $250 million for the state kitty.

Rick,

The answers to your rhetorical questions 1 & 2 are:

Mr. Bonta is running for re-election. The bonus answer is that he is setting up to run for Governor when his benefactor runs for President in 2024.

The answer to #3 is: Incarcerated people should be allowed to vote and mind your own business.
