Oroville, CA — Today Republican James Gallagher announced receiving the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) in his campaign for the 3rd Assembly District. The HJTA is the most respected taxpayer protection organization in California and is credited for the passage of California’s historic Proposition 13 to protect property owners from tax increases.
“James Gallagher is committed to fighting for taxpayers and to protecting Proposition 13,” said HJTA President Jon Coupal. “Every year Sacramento politicians try to push through new job-killing taxes and we need more legislators like James to stop this assault on California taxpayers.”
Gallagher responded to the endorsement saying, “I am excited to receive the endorsement of such a respected taxpayer organization. I’m humbled that they have recognized my work on the Board of Supervisors and my commitment to protect taxpayers from government waste and abuse. I will work closely with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association as an Assemblyman to ensure that the North State is protected against new taxes in the future.”
Gallagher is a small businessman, Sutter County Supervisor and a member of a long-standing farming family in Sutter County. He has championed property rights, protection of our ag-based economy and limited government and has worked hard on important regional issues including levee repair and flood control.
