Can you jump on the phone?

          John: 30 phone calls — that’s all I’m asking for in our fight to save California! Here’s what I hope you will agree to do: Because of Covid-19 restrictions, Reform California is emphasizing PHONE CALLS FROM HOME from volunteers to target voters. Our volunteers are of…

here's the number for you

  John: The massive property tax hike initiative placed on California’s November ballot by the politicians finally has been assigned a number: Prop 15. We are now officially the “NO on PROP 15” campaign! Prop 15 increases YOUR cost-of-living dramatically by gutting the all-important Pro…

your property tax hike

  John: It’s official: Sacramento politicians have qualified a ballot initiative for this November’s election that will impose a massive statewide property tax hike and gut the protections we won in 1978 with Prop 13! Thanks to Prop 13, YOU are saving thousands a year in lower property …

Virtual Town Hall on Fight to Repeal AB5

Gov. Newsom Abusing Coronavirus Aid

crushing blow
