Letter To The Editor: Help Elect A True Patriot

On April 28, 2017, Governor Brown signed SB1 which increased our gas taxes by approximately 20 cents per gallon and vehicle license fees by an average of $100, effective January 1, 2018.

On October 3, 2017, Governor Brown extended the Cap and Trade Program, which was slated to expire in 2020. The new law extends it until 2030. Cap and Trade will increase gas taxes from .63 to .93 cents per gallon.

Travis Allen has filed a ballot measure to repeal the recently approved gas tax and sponsored legislation requiring voters to show photo ID.

Allen, elected to the Legislature in 2012, said he decided to run because of the years of “wasteful spending and dictatorial policies pushed by Jerry Brown and Sacramento.” He is running to be the next governor of California to take back our state for the forgotten hardworking Californian taxpayers.

If you want to help elect a true patriot for California Governor and bring California back to a state of sanity, get involved. Go here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e054aabab28a1f85-travis
