I recieved this in an email from Irvine Councilwoman and candidate for Congress Beth Krom.Dear Dan,
Today, hundreds of thousands of hard-working people in the 48th Congressional District are filing their tax returns, sending hundreds of millions of dollars to fill the federal coffers in Washington. While everyone hates paying taxes, the fact is that a lot of these dollars are reinvested in communities around our country to support infrastructure, education, public safety and other critical needs.
An effective Congressional representative understands that the best way to leverage the investment of local taxpayers is to ensure that federal funds are brought back to the district to help the communities they represent. I’m running for Congress to ensure that cities and taxpayers have effective representation in Congress. www.BethKrom.com
John Campbell refuses to bring funds back to the district. That’s what I call “taxation without representation!”
John Campbell refuses to bring one penny of support back to the cities in the 48th. Not one penny!
As a Councilmember and former Mayor, I know what it takes to make our cities work. I value investments in education, public safety and environmental stewardship. These are not just “quality of life” issues, they are bottom line investments that allow cities to thrive and support the economic base of our communities.
I want you to be proud of your investment in the success of our country and our communities. As your Congresswoman, I will work every day to ensure that the dollars y.ou work so hard to earn are invested in ways that bring value to your families, your communities and our country.
Thank you for your continued support.
