San Diego County Taxpayers Association Represents Rotarian Socialists

Brian BradyBrian Brady 8 Comments

I said this four years ago and I will say it again:   the San Diego County Taxpayers Association doesn’t represent taxpayers.  SDCTA represents the rotarian socialists who have infiltrated the Board of Directors:   representatives from big business, taxpayer funded entities, construction interests, public sector unions, political consulting forms, and law firms.  All of these entities benefit from fleecing …

Happy SANDAG Tax & Spend Republican Day

Brian BradyBrian Brady 6 Comments

It looks like the SANDAG Board of Directors will vote to approve the SANDAG Sky Gondola Tax for a public vote today.  The anticipated scorecard should look like this: City of San Diego: Faulconer (R) NO, Gloria (D) YES County of San Diego: Roberts (T&SR) YES, Jacob (R) NO – Horn voted NO, with Jacob absent. That cancels out the …

Who Knows If There Are Tax And Spend Republicans In Santee?

Can we get some more Republicans to place a pro-SANDAG tax resolution on their City Council’s agenda?  We really need to do this to get each and every Republican Council member and Mayor on record about this SANDAG tax. Escondido City Council placed it on the agenda and not one council member voted for the tax. Poway and La Mesa rejected …

La Mesa Unanimously Rejects SANDAG Sky Gondola Tax; Tax And Spend Republicans In Vista and El Cajon Betray Taxpayers

Brian BradyBrian Brady 2 Comments

Bravo to the taxpayer champions in La Mesa for unanimously rejecting the SANDAG Sky Gondola tax.  You may have seen Councilwoman Alessio and I debating on these pages about procedural points but, when push came to shove, she (and her colleagues) stood up to this horrific tax proposal.  Here’s Alessio: The vote in La Mesa was 5-0 against. All council …

Poway Mayor Steve Vaus deserves praise for raising awareness about the SANDAG tax scheme.  He acted on the suggestion to get an up or down vote from the Poway City Council.  Last night, Poway rejected the SANDAG tax scheme unanimously. Escondido unanimously rejected the tax a couple of weeks ago.  Coronado and Vista have it on their agendas for up …

I spoke with Encinitas Mayor and County Board of Supervisors candidate Kristin Gaspar today about the SANDAG tax scheme.  We are hopeful she can get its support on the Encinitas City Council for an up or down vote– We’d like to smoke out the tax hikers on the City Councils.  (FWIW, Kristin Gaspar is opposed to the SANDAG tax scheme). …

SANDAG Tax and Spend Republicans #FeelTheHeat

We warned the SANDAG tax and spend Republicans to vote against putting Proposition X on the ballot: Thus, the Republican Party is the “no new taxes” party.  Nationally, we ask our federal candidates to sign a pledge to oppose new taxes.  Statewide, we ask our statewide and legislative candidates to sign that pledge.  Locally, our standing policy is “no new …

ESCONDIDO — A massive investment proposed by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) has little support among the City Council.

Republicans Will be Challenged If They Support SANDAG Tax Ballot Initiative

Brian BradyBrian Brady 16 Comments

Let’s start here; the Republican Party is the “no new taxes” party.  The glaring reason is well, obvious; the federal, state, and local governments collect plenty of taxes already.    The secondary reasons are:  governments are horrible stewards of money and they have too much power over our lives. Thus, the Republican Party is the “no new taxes” party.  Nationally, we …
