Why Charles Cole for AD37 vs Steve Bennett?

POLITICS

By Charles Cole, Candidate for CA State Assembly, District 37, coleforassembly.com

Hello I’m Charles Cole and I won the March 3rd Primary against Steve Bennett for State Assembly. 

I’m running on no new taxes, fiscal responsibility, school choice, jobs and housing. What’s not to love?

Now suddenly Mr. Bennett claims he wants to bring his great “ethos of fiscal responsibility” to Sacramento. And that he wants to “build more housing”.

Firstly let me tell you we researched Bennett’s 20 year term as county supervisor and he was not an economic genius. 

Unless you call increasing government payrolls 256%…

And he increased unfunded pension debt by a whopping 535%, putting over  $750 MILLION onto the backs of Ventura taxpayers. Thanks for nothing Steve!!

Looks like Steve Bennett is great for government employees and non working government pensioners…but really terrible for the taxpayers of Ventura County.

 I on the contrary am supported by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and proud of it.

Secondly… Bennett was the author of SOAR which violated property rights of thousands of Ventura property owners and stopped unfavored people from building needed housing. So now Steve’s running for State Assembly against me, a property rights guy, and suddenly he’s for property rights. What a surprise!

Not so fast Bennett, you’re a two faced weasel trying to ruin the rest of California with your elitist, big government, socialist policies. 

Don’t believe me? 

Please take a look at my campaign website and see the financial documents direct from the county, and while you’re there enjoy our videos, Where’s Bennett,  Bennett Sues the Church,  Riot or Rallies and  Bennettville.    At coleforassembly.com

 Don’t send that big government elitist to Sacramento, send me Charles Cole. I’m young with an accounting background, I’m pro jobs, pro police, can actually balance a checkbook and I’m not a socialist, marxist or communist.   

 I promise  you. I will not let you down.   Charles W. Cole

Fight on Cole! Bennett IS the problem. He steals our property rights he votes the money that demand the tax increases HE voted for the pensions to leave the taxpayer holding the bag on. He looks to now collect THREE Govt pensions!

Bennett is a pension monster. You want hyper expensive government and out of control pensions. He’s your guy.
