I hereby make the following pledge:
I support Proposition 13, the initiative constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1978 to
limit taxes and give taxpayers greater control over taxation.
I believe Proposition 13 is fair, valuing property for tax purposes as of the date of purchase and
allowing only limited annual increases for inflation, in order to prevent the taxation of “paper
I believe taxpayers have a right to vote on all tax increases.
I support California’s system of citizen access to the initiative process.
I believe that a two-thirds vote of the electorate should be required to approve local bonds
that must be repaid by property owners.
I support the Right to Vote on Taxes Act, Proposition 218, passed by voters in 1996 to
strengthen the right of local taxpayers to vote on taxes and require a vote of property owners to
approve assessments on property.
