Reverse damage of politicians, special interests: John Cox

Reverse damage of politicians, special interests: John Cox

For decades California has been run by career politicians and insiders. Together they have created a state that only the wealthy and well-connected can afford to live in.

California has the highest taxes in the country and is one of the country’s least affordable places to live.

Homelessness is out of control. California is home to nearly half of our country’s unhoused people. The politicians have spent billions, but the problem is getting worse every day.

We are facing our worst ever wildfire season. We have a water shortage caused by mismanagement. California is losing population for the first time ever as the middle class flees.

In short, career politicians are running our beautiful state into the ground.

I have a vision of a California run for the benefit of its people, not the politicians. As an outsider, I’ll always put the people first.

We will cut taxes 25% across the board, while closing corporate loopholes that benefit the well connected. We will reduce the cost of housing for the middle class by reforming the rules and regulations that get abused to drive up housing costs. We will squeeze every penny out of  state government to lower taxes and keep them low.

As a CPA, I know how to pinch pennies and make them work for people. That’s the kind of person we need in the governor’s office.

We will also cut homelessness in half by getting the homeless into treatment. We can’t just build housing for the homeless. They’ve proven they won’t use it. We have to address the root causes. That’s something the politicians have refused to do. The result: homelessness taking over our streets. That ends through treatment.

We will reduce wildfires by managing our forests better and better utilizing our government resources used to fight the fires. We can add more reservoirs and use desalination to solve our water shortages. California needs an outsider who will implement creative, yet realistic solutions to fix our problems.

As a businessman and CPA, I’ll make it happen.

Most importantly, we will put an end to the insider back door deals that result in Gavin Newsom attending a lobbyist’s birthday party in violation of his own coronavirus rules. I will bring decency and fairness back to government. I guarantee you that no lobbyists will be inviting me to their parties. And I wouldn’t want to go if they did.

California is the greatest state in our country with the greatest resources. The career politicians and insiders, in both parties, have squandered it. As a businessman and CPA I’ll help bring California back to what it should be.

John Cox is a businessman who ran for governor in 2018.
