John Munn will serve us well

From page A13 | November 04, 2012 |

I’m asking that you cast your vote for John Munn for California Assembly.

At all levels, this is an election of consequence. At all levels, the central issues are government spending, private sector jobs and our futures — our own and those of our children and grandchildren.

An independent task force has estimated that California’s burden of debt could total as much as $335 billion. California’s unemployment rate, at more than 11 percent, is above the national average and its underemployment percentage, at more than 20 percent — a number taking into account those who’ve stopped looking for work or who are working part time who’d rather work full time — is among the highest in the nation.

With these conditions, for all our sakes, an understanding of and commitment to fiscal responsibility are essential for those we elect as our representatives. Munn spent his career in state government and knows its operation and function. He has a public service record having served on the Davis school board. He has held leadership positions opposing wasteful spending and the excessive weight of taxation.

Munn takes California’s drastic financial straits seriously. He recognizes that government budgets need to be balanced without increasing taxes and fees. He also knows the added burden of taxes, fees and regulations holds back business and suppresses job growth. Finally, he sees that a continuation of things as they are clearly threatens the opportunities of our younger family members who live in this state and absolutely undermines the hope of us all that the state will rebound from its current economic crisis.

Our state’s dire money problems are the first order of business. A will to see and address them is what we desperately need from our elected officials.

Munn brings that perspective and that determination. He will serve us well as our representative.
