KRIS A. UPTON: No on 30; use high-speed rail funds

October 12, 2012 

We need to vote no on Proposition 30 and take the billions of dollars that will be wasted on the high-speed rail fairytale and give that money to our schools.

We need to send Gov. Jerry Brown to Mars to attend a strategic planning conference (or anything else that will get him out of California) and we need to vote for fiscally conservative, pro-business candidates like Jack Mobley.

Out-of-control taxes, reckless government spending and punishing the business and working people of California is not the way to turn this state around. We need some common sense people who have a vision for the future and who understand economics and business and know how to encourage Californians to make our state great again.
