HJTA Forms Committee To Back Newman Recall

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association announced today (11) that the organization is backing the effort to recall tax-raising Senator Josh Newman.

“HJTA has several thousand members in the district represented by Newman and they are angry,” said HJTA President Jon Coupal.  “They feel betrayed by their senator who voted for a $5.2 billion annual car and gas tax increase.”

“For years, the state has been diverting gas tax revenue away from roads, only now, with this massive 43% tax increase, are they promising to fix them.  We have heard this before, but the only thing Californians can count on is higher taxes.”

“By voting against the interest of his constituents, Newman shows he is either naïve, gullible or worse.  He has no business representing hard working Californians who are struggling to make ends meet due to our state’s already oppressive tax burden.”

To aid voters in the 29th Senate District (that includes parts of Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Orange Counties) remove their tax-happy senator, HJTA has formed Californians Against Car and Gas Tax Hikes, a Committee to Recall Josh Newman, Sponsored and Funded by No New Taxes, a Project of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
