Taxpayers to Confront & Protest Tax and Spend Assembly GOP Leader
Chad Mayes at $1,000 a Plate Fundraiser in Ontario
Group plans to film and expose donors in escalation of tactics targeting Republican
(Torrance, CA, July 25, 2017) – Prompted by Assemblyman Chad Mayes lead role in raising gas taxes more than 60 cents per gallon with his signature "Cap & Trade" push, taxpayers and activists will protest the GOP leader at his fundraiser luncheon at the New York Grille in Ontario on Thursday
The $1,000 a plate luncheon is scheduled to run from 11:30 to 1:30 with protesters arriving in advance to capture and release information on all attending in support of Mayes.
“Assembly Republican Leader Mayes played the lead role in whipping GOP votes for the largest gas tax in American history and we are going to make him pay. It is shameful and disgusting what he did,” said protest organizer Joseph Turner, the executive director of American Children First. “We are going to keep the spotlight on him and his supporters until he resigns his leadership position.”
American Children First has called upon Mayes’ resignation after his vote and the organization exposed his affair with Kristin Olsen, the former GOP Assembly Leader. Turner has promised to escalate tactics.
“Donors are fair game,” Turner says, referring to plans to expose Mayes’ supporters. “If they are going to stand with those who punish working class Californians then they must suffer a similar fate.”
Those wishing to attend the protest can get more information by calling American Children First at (424) 269-4564 or by visiting their Facebook page at: http://facebook.com/AmericanChildrenFirst.
Last week, American Children First exposed the affair between Mayes and Olsen and called upon Mayes to resign his leadership position as GOP Assembly Caucus Leader following his vote to raise gas taxes.
