John Merrill published Action Alert! Reform CA needs YOUR HELP! in Create easy announcement 2022-04-20 18:28:03 -0700
From our friends at Reform CA - They will be donating $2 for local Log Cabin chapters for EVERY SIGNATURE gathered.
If interested, please contact Log Cabin OC at [email protected]. We will be distributing petitions at the CAGOP conference, so be sure to attend one of the two events!
These signatures HAVE TO BE RETURNED TO REFORM CA by the last day of April.
SIGN THE TAXPAYER PROTECTION AND GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY ACT: An important initiative is circulating for signatures right now that will protect California taxpayers from the relentless increases in taxes as well as the introduction of new fees (taxes in disguise!) without first being presented to the taxpayers for a vote.
This initiative gives voters the constitutional right to vote on all new or higher state and local tax increases.
- Stops bureaucrats from increasing fees and our cost of living without a vote of the Legislature or local government.
- Stops politicians from promising to spend our hard-earned tax dollars like the gas tax on popular things like roads and then quietly shifting those tax dollars to other priorities.
- Stops politicians from creating “hidden taxes” by calling tax increases a fee to prevent you from voting for approval.
- Requires all tax proposals clearly explain to voters the use, rate, and duration of any new or higher tax so we can hold the government accountable for how it spends our tax dollars.
- The state has over a $45 billion tax surplus and is raising taxes and fees again this year. Cities are too.
WHEN WILL IT STOP?? WHEN THE CITIZENS OF CALIFORNIA MAKE THE DECISION TO STAND UP AND SAY NO NEW TAXES!!!!!
On behalf of Log Cabin Republicans of Orange County, thank you so much for attending and donating to the "Keeping a Promise" benefit last night for our friend in Afghanistan!
Legend Group forwarded us the following link which can be used to donate directly to him outside of Legend Group, that will go for his educational pursuits.
A big THANK YOU to Roman Nunes, who helped collect donations at the door. All donations and checks received at the door will be forwarded in a sealed envelope to Legend Group. Also, if there are any issues with checks that were written to Legend Group at the door, they will reach out to you directly.
