Signs Coming Soon

campaign sign for 2018

Hello friends and supporters, campaign signs are being ordered and will be deployed to residences and businesses of the 20th district. I will also place a few at the Upland Republican Party headquarters as well for people to obtain them.

Any supporter who donated who lives in the district will get a sign reserved for them as well. I thank those who donated so far for my race.

THANK YOU

September Newsletter

In August I wrote the official opposition letter to Chaffey College Measure P which you can see on the county website and your upcoming sample ballot. I am trying my best to stand up for taxpayers in our community. With Democrats trying to kill off Proposition 13, we need to do our best to restrain tax increases as much as possible. 60 dollars for a 400-thousand-dollar home may be a small increase in your tax bill, but with other school districts in the past adding their charges it is another weeks’ worth of groceries you could have bought with that increase.

The best government is a government that is not severely bloated. Sacramento and local governments have a swamp just as much as in our nation’s capital. I am not that ignorant that some facilities must be repaired, but should we at least make a pledge to make the money last until the 2002 Measure L bond is paid off at the minimum. People think bond money is free money like the credit card promotional offers, but people must pay these costs in the long run.

As someone who would like to become a state legislator, I think there should be a better process when it comes to school bonds where the bond firm and the district must list the top 5 categories the proceeds of the bond would be used for and there would have to be two public information sessions about a proposed school bond. One during their normal meeting time and one during the opposite meeting time where if a district meets at 2pm, they would meet at 6pm for a public session.

Aside from the school bond issue, our incumbent has exited the legislature for the session and made so many horrendous votes. As your candidate against her, I hope to be used as your way to vent your frustration about all these bad votes during the last two years. I will be posting some links to some of the bad legislation that has happened during this session on my official campaign home page.

If you want future candidates from the Republican Party to challenge our incumbents we need your support. Candidates such as myself, Toni Holle and Christian Valiente would appreciate you telling your friends and family about us and possibly sending in a contribution for our races. We may not have six figures or more to run our races, but we absolutely would appreciate your support.

August Campaign Newsletter

We have nearly three months until the election. My campaign is about giving the voters a way to vent their frustration with Sacramento in the way our incumbent state senator has voted on issues such as crime and taxes. If I did not run, we would have had her unopposed and that would have been very disappointing because the guy I beat died. I am not here to be everything to all people, but I would rather be honest. I believe our motorists should not be the ATM machine for our government when many of us are struggling to afford our commute to work and our home/rent payments with her SB 1 and AB 398 votes. August 15th will be the event in San Bernardino where you can hear from Carl the proponent of Proposition 6 and candidates such as myself.

I do plan to attend the next Chino Tea Party event on August 12th, if anyone has any issues that they feel need to be discussed let me know before or after the meeting. People are more than invited to give checks if desired there as well. 15421 Fairfield Ranch Rd, Chino Hills, CA 91709 9am is when the meeting begins.

My district includes two major churches and there are issues that many voters do find important this year when it comes to faith, life and values.

SB 320, the college abortion pill is coming closer to passage, since our legislator is the author it will be mighty difficult to ask her to reconsider her bill. However, tell your friends and family who live in other districts why the abortion pill should not have easier access in our college campuses when the pill is not exactly perfect for the woman herself where complications can happen.

AB 2943, I may have a divergent opinion on this bill compared to others in my political party, but I oppose the bill because I realize this bill will be likely overturned in the federal supreme court causing major damage to LGBT rights advocates and I highly recommend that the author pull the bill for the session. I may agree that there needs to be solutions to the issue, but the way the bill is written it is perceived as bringing a nuclear bomb to a fist fight. Personally, I do not want a costly and divisive campaign to repeal the likely law either. Even if you have the majority in the legislature the Democrats underestimate the religious conservative community in our state.

Money helps big time with political campaigns. Your donation can make a difference. Running on fumes is not fun either, I would like to see another 1600 dollars raised by fall. You can do monthly donations or one time donations via the website.

Better State Party Leadership Is Needed

In addition to being candidate for State Senate District 20, I also sit as member on the state, Los Angeles and San Bernardino County Parties as your nominee for 2018. I am concerned about our future prospects as a state party, the same trajectory is not going to cut it.

I agree we got a decent cash injection in the last five years, but in exchange for the cash injection we sold our soul where many Republicans and people who lean to vote in our party lost the enthusiasm for our candidates after being served statewide candidates that had little or no difference to the Democratic Party choices.

We have to be different because people will want the real thing instead of a pale imitation. We want candidates and office holders to stand up against the state Democrats instead of jumping in the pool with them. Voter registration and voter education will be necessary as soon as possible so we can help get the electorate to make change.  Continue reading Better State Party Leadership Is Needed

The Campaign

The primary has been a bit quieter. I have had several Tea Party groups in the region feature me on their voter guides and I thank them. However, in the General Election it will be time to pump up the volume and get active. Right now, the campaign has a modest amount of debt of around 150 dollars and it would be great if we can close the books and break even for the primary cycle with a few more contributions, so we can be ready for the general. I will be ready to answer questions on Facebook and Twitter and my email address if people want to communicate with me. On Monday and Tuesday, the questions will be answered when I am free from work.

Nickel and Dimed

It seems that we are being priced out of living in our state due to the central planning mentality of the governing party and our incumbents. The gas tax is not going entirely for roads and they want us off the roads. They want I-10 and possibly the rest of our highways such as CA-60 and I-210 be tolled as well so we can have the pleasure in driving in 25 dollar each way lanes if we do not want to eat 2 to 4 hours of our lives a day in traffic. Will my opponent do what her friends and agencies such as SCAG want the public to do such as taking Omnitrans to her district office and back? New lanes and new highways are not going to be easily built unless there is an element to get us off our cars thanks to the Democrats.

Water Talk

Rationing Californians with 55 gallons per day is going to be unfair when people like Oprah and Mark Zuckerberg have bigger water demands when they should be subjected to the same upcoming pain. I think there are more intermediate ideas we can do before we go draconian as what our state legislature have done. First, let us consider making high efficiency washers the default washing machine in California. Washing clothes does consume 29 to 45 gallons of water per load while the high efficiency washer does it with only 15 to 29 gallons per load. If we can save 25 to 40% more water from each load it would be progress.  Rationing means more government control.

Upcoming Plans

Other campaigns will be in operation in conjunction with the Assembly and State Senate races. We will be the local connections with the gas tax/car tag increase repeal effort. There are good things coming in this potential General Election.

Welcome

Welcome to the official campaign website of Munson for State Senate 2018. This website will be updated with issue policy papers, public appearances and other useful information about this race for the 20th State Senate District. The election is November 6th and I hope I can earn your vote.

April Newsletter

Even though the probability will be likely that I will advance to the general election in the Top 2. I will be making two major appearances in April. I will be attending as a spectator the Unite IE Conference at the Riverside convention center. If you live in Grand Terrace or Colton area it might be a good idea to spend a Sunday afternoon there on April 8th.  Tickets are $39 and notable conservative speakers will be there from 12:30 pm to the close at 5.

The other event is in the district in Ontario. Visit the San Bernardino County Republican Party during their first endorsement convention. Tickets are around $13, and the event is on April 14th. Many races are being considered for endorsement by the membership such as statewide races, legislative races including mine, county and local elections. As one of the current members of the committee I will also have a vote during those proceedings.

I thank those who have donated recently to the campaign. We are almost caught up after paying the filing fee, but flyers and other advertising does cost money and I would appreciate any assistance.

Unite IE Event – Riverside Convention Center presented by AM 590 April 8th Doors open at 12:30pm, general tickets $39

San Bernardino County Republican Party event – Ontario Holiday Inn – April 14th, Doors open at 11am, general tickets $13

A Democratic Party Civil War We Do Not Need

No need for cat fights or childish games, the Chino Valley deserves better. I may be annoyed by my congresswoman Norma Torres, but this civil war within the Democratic Party incumbents is simply sad. We don’t need to behave like we are from Taiwan where their legislators throw chairs at each other.
I disagree with Connie, Freddie and Norma and we should not have to worry about if we want to be jabbed with 100 daggers or 99 daggers with the 52nd Assembly district. I hope Republicans choose my ticket mate Toni Holle to provide some sanity in the race and make this civil war costly for both Democrats.
In the 20th State Senate District which I will be filing soon for, I am running because I have seen no leadership on the issues of Proposition 47 and 57 where it did little for reducing crime in our state. I am running because we need better ideas on water management instead of sending windfall gains of water straight back to the ocean. I am running because I find little logic in 100% renewable energy when countries such as Australia are facing blackouts due to these policies. I am running because working families can’t afford four or five-dollar gasoline which the incumbent’s votes and policies will lead to this progression. We can still refurbish our existing refineries and build a new one while planning with hydrogen fueling stations for new technologies for the future.
I want to provide the voters a choice not an echo. We don’t need a battle between two candidates who are virtually identical. Unfortunately, when name brand candidates gave up on Assembly District 52, its up to the activists to speak up until the name brand candidates get the courage to run again.
Even though this war may be amusing, our communities do not need it.
