Taxpayer Groups To Jose Solorio – “Stop misleading voters”

Call For Jose to Stop Claiming He Protected Prop 13

Seal Beach, CA – – Two of California’s largest taxpayer protection organizations joined forces today to call out Jose Solorio for attempting to mislead voters about his record in his campaign.

Jose’s current television advertisement states “Jose Solorio voted to Protect Prop 13.” However, as an Assemblyman he refused to vote against ACA 18, a direct assault on Proposition 13 and he voted in favor of ACR 54 which calls for a split-roll property tax and blames Prop 13 for State budget woes.

“Voters know that what politicians say and what they do isn’t always one and the same,” said HJTA President Jon Coupal. “Jose Solorio wants to call himself a protector of Prop 13 because it’s election season. Unfortunately Jose’s voting record proves otherwise. I’m challenging Jose Solorio to own up to his record and to tell voters the truth. Stop misleading voters. Janet Nguyen is the taxpayer’s choice in this election that’s a fact.”

Joining HJTA President Jon Coupal was Orange County Taxpayers Association President Carolyn Cavecche, “Jose Solorio authored a bill that attempted to raise the car tax and he voted for a significant number of fees, taxes and spending that affected every California taxpayer,” said Cavecche. “For him to claim he is any sort of advocate for taxpayers is simply not true.”

Coupal closed the press conference by stating, “Jose Solorio’s candidacy poses one of the greatest threats to Proposition 13 on this year’s ballot, and taxpayers need Janet Nguyen in Sacramento to save Proposition 13 from the big spenders who are desperate to raise taxes.”

The election for the 34th Senate District is shaping up to be one of the biggest elections in California in 2014. For more information visit
