(El Cajon) Bill Wells’ campaign for State Assembly continues to grow a list of local grassroots support and announces the endorsement of East County TEA Party leader Barry Willis. Willis is a founder of the East County TEA Party and has been heavily involved in the organizing and activism of the TEA Party movement.
“Bill Wells has been involved in the East County TEA Party movement from the beginning. He is exactly the kind of tax fighter we need in Sacramento,” said Barry Willis upon announcing his support.
Bill Wells has already received the endorsement of the local San Diego Tax-Fighters as well as the statewide Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association. Wells has been a vocal opponent against tax increases having run for city Council on a platform opposing the sales tax hike and never voting for an increase during his time in office.
“My record speaks for itself. I am glad Barry and his great group of grassroots activists have rallied to my support,” said Vice-Mayor Bill Wells.
