SVARW Emails to Liccardo and Cortese in Response to Shooting of Scalise

Dear Mayor Liccardo:

As leader of our great city, the Silicon Valley Association of Republican Women AGAIN respectively request that you issue a statement that violence against Trump supporters in San Jose will not be tolerated.

This morning we all woke up to the news of the attempted assassination of House Republican Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, as he practiced on the Republican baseball team.  The assassin was a deranged Bernie Sanders volunteer who filled his Facebook page with anti-Trump rhetoric.   As you recall, this is the same rhetoric that used as justification for the violence at the Trump Rally in San Jose last June.  It is also the same rhetoric repeated in your “We have your back” message last November.

Last November (11/18/16), we asked you to hold a press conference with Police Chief Garcia after a suspected hate crime took place against one of our members at our November meeting at Three Flames.  Speaking from a position of power, will you now join fellow Democrats and condemn violence against Republicans?

We understand that Democrats are disappointed by the last presidential election but, as you know, winning by even a slim margin still counts as a victory. Every day we see examples of scorn and condemnation aimed at our president but it does not change the outcome of the election, and leads to crimes like this.  Do you agree that it’s time to put this animosity behind us?  Will you issue a statement from your office condemning this violence?

Dear Supervisor Cortese:

As leader of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, the Silicon Valley Association of Republican Women respectively request that you issue a statement that violence against Trump supporters in Santa Clara County will not be tolerated.

Join the Campaign to Repeal the Car and Gas Tax

With virtually no notice to the public, Democratic politicians in the California State Legislature crammed through a massive hike to the Car Tax and Gas Tax.

Fortunately, former San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio has unveiled a strategy for getting citizens involved in overturning these tax hikes! More on that in a bit, but first you need to understand how these tax hikes will cost YOU!

Car Tax: Pay More, Get Less!

Depending on the value of your car, miles driven, and your MPG, the typical California family will end up paying $350-700 more per year under the Car Tax and Gas Tax hike!

What’s worse, the money is spent with virtually zero accountability for fixing roads! In fact, Californians already pay the highest gas tax in the country and yet we still have the worst roads. For every $1 in average costs for road repairs spent in the other 49 states in the US, California spends $4.7 dollars for the same repairs – resulting in wasteful spending of 470 percent more!

“Politicians have been caught stealing gas tax monies and recent audits show billions in waste that should be going to road repairs,” notes Carl DeMaio. “The Car Tax and Gas Tax hike contains zero reforms of wasteful spending, meaning we are throwing good money after bad,” DeMaio warns.

CA Dems Silence Opposition–Republican Senator Nguyen Removed From Senate Floor

The Democrat’s bullying and silencing tactics aren’t just happening at speeches or on college campuses they are happening IN OUR CAPITOL!

Senator Janet Nguyen, who is a refugee from the Vietnam War, was denied her First Amendment rights by the California Democratic Leadership in the Senate Chamber for speaking her opposition to the Communist-led government in Vietnam.

If you stand with Senator Nguyen and believe every American has the right to speak freely without fear of reprisal, then sign our petition today.
