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.
