Fiscal Issues Facing California with State Controller Candidate Konstantinos Roditis
Our August meeting will feature Konstantinos Roditis speaking on fiscal issues facing the state of California. These include the proposed service and labor tax, the high speed train boondoggle, and Proposition 6 to Repeal the Gas Tax.
Roditis' opponent for State Controller, Betty Yee, supports the idea of imposing a service tax on services that could range from taxing tax preparation to haircuts!
The so-called high speed rail is billions of dollars over budget, seven years behind schedule, and likely won’t be very high speed - yet it’s a project that many politicians want to protect and continue to fund. It’s a perfect example of why government programs fail, and why government doesn’t belong in the transportation business.
Proposition 6 is the bill to Repeal the Gas Tax. Mr. Roditis has worked with Carl DeMaio, the leader of the gas tax repeal. We plan to have lawn signs and additional literature on this in addition to hearing Mr. Roditis on the issue.
Libertarian candidate Autumn Browne for the 69th Assembly District will also be speaking about her campaign!
Konstantinos Roditis is the Republican nominee for California State Controller, running against the incumbent Democrat Betty Yee. He has worked with Carl DeMaio, the leader of the car and gas tax repeal, where they worked on reform initiatives which eventually blossomed into Mr. DeMaio’s organization known as Reform California, which is the organization behind Yes on 6: Repeal of the Gas Tax.
Mr. Roditis has worked as an auditor and then eventually as a Chief Executive Office and Chief Financial Officer.
He is involved in many community organizations: Past-President of the Anaheim Hills Rotary Club, Treasurer of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation, and former City Commission with the City of Anaheim.
Mr. Roditis is the author of Trickle-up-Taxation a comprehensive state government and tax reform policy which will strip power from Sacramento and bring it to the local level.
His work has been published in Tax Notes, NOQ Report, The New Americana, Resurrecting Conservatism, and has recently been interviewed by Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire and quoted in Townhall.com.
Also speaking will be Libertarian candidates for State Assembly, Autumn Browne (69th AD) and Mimi Robson (70th AD).
