IT'S TIME WE TAKE BACK CALIFORNIA! Join Travis Allen for California Governor!
TAXES - California Must Cut Taxes - As a financial advisor for over two decades, Travis knows first hand how to make tough financial choices. The 13.3% income tax rate for California is the highest in the nation. Our state sales tax of 7.25% is also the highest in the nation and when you factor in local taxes, sales tax in some cities can reach as high as 10%. If that wasnt enough, California also pays among the highest gas taxes and highest car registration fees in the nation. We must repeal Jerry Browns gas tax and cut taxes for all Californians.
EDUCATION - California Must Once Again Provide the Best Education in the Country - Despite pouring tens of billions of dollars over many years into our public education, Californias public school system ranks among the bottom in the nation. Tragically, our public education system puts the interests of teachers unions and the highly paid school administrators ahead of our California students and their parents. Our children deserve better. They deserve safe schools where great teachers are rewarded and bad teachers are fired. That is why Travis has introduced pro-parent choice legislation every year in the Legislature to allow parents to choose what is best for their childrens education, not un-elected Sacramento bureaucrats. California needs more charter schools and greater school choice to truly educate our children.
INFRASTRUCTURE - California Must Fix our Roads and Reduce Traffic - Travis introduced the Repeal the Gas Tax Initiative so Californians can vote to overturn Jerry Browns widely unpopular gas tax, and actually fix Californias roads and expand our highways with the money our state already has. Every year the average Californian spends up to 90 hours in traffic away from their families and their jobs. California has the revenues to fix traffic congestion. Lets spend our existing tax revenue on desperately needed transportation infrastructure instead of Californias bloated government bureaucracy and high speed rail.
CRIME - California Must Get Tough on Crime - As a State Assemblyman, Travis has been fighting for policies to keep criminals off of our streets and out of our neighborhoods. Keeping our citizens safe is the number one responsibility of government. In 2014, Jerry Brown and the California Democrats pushed and helped pass AB 109 the realignment bill that released thousands of criminals from state prisons. Since then, crime has spiked increasing by 7.6% in 2015 alone, and violent crimes have increased by double digits in major cities in 2016. California must re-establish our tough on crime policies that allow law enforcement to do their jobs and protect the victims of crimes, not the criminals.
