(El Cajon) El Cajon Mayor Pro Tem Bill Wells announced today that he has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge as written by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). Already considered the tax-fighter candidate for the 77th, having earned the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, Bill Wells signed the pledge to emphasize his continuing commitment to fighting taxes if elected to the State Assembly.
According to ATR, the pledge has the simple purpose of ensuring that those candidates who claim to oppose tax increases are willing to put their commitment in writing. ATR wants to inform taxpayers about where candidates stand on taxes before voters send them to Sacramento.
“It is important for constituents to know that I stand against tax increases,” Wells said. “The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association endorsement shows I have kept this promise during my time in office. Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge shows my commitment to opposing taxes while in the State Assembly,” Wells continued.
The 77th Assembly district includes the communities of: Alpine, Borrego Springs, Bostonia, Casa de Oro – Mount Helix, Crest, El Cajon, Granite Hills, Harbison Canyon, Jamul, La Mesa, Lakeside, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, San Diego, San Diego Country Estates, Santee and Winter Gardens.
