Randy Thomasson: "A principle to remember on local taxes, bonds, fees, and assessments:
... "big government often robs people of personal responsibility and saddles working families, property owners, and small business owners with greater financial burdens. It's all because big government refuses to investigate and slash its own waste. Because of the influence of government unions and bureaucracy, independent, tough audits are simply not seen. Therefore, we encourage you to vote NO on ANY AND ALL tax increases, bonds (which is borrowing money, and always more expensive than a direct tax because you must also pay back interest), fees, and assessments. It's pro-family to keep more of your hard-earned money, so it's pro-family to oppose wasteful government taking away more money from your family. They like to take it incrementally, so you must consistently oppose even the smallest tax/bond/fee/assessment increases in order to inhibit the government from taking more and more and more from your family."

Orange County Pro-Family Voter Guide for the Tuesday, November 8, 2016 California General Election

Robyn's Notes regarding the OC Pro-Family Voter Guide:

1) The OC Pro-Family Voter Guide can be a helpful tool when researching candidates to find out where they are on social issues. Please consider using this list in addition to other voter recommendations and voter resources found on this site. All the candidates on this list have submitted questionnaires that show them to be prolife and supportive of traditional family values.

2) In some races there are additional excellent prolife candidates whose names do not appear on this list, since not all of them filled in questionnaires.

3) In FULLERTON, my city, I (Robyn) I Highly Recommend Voting for Bruce Whitaker & Larry Bennett. If you want to vote for a 3rd candidate, I’d recommend adding Susan Gapinski. Susan is endorsed by conservative council members Sebourn and Whitaker, as well as Congressman Ed Royce.

4) For ANAHEIM, I’d like to highlight 2 of my city council recommendations
District 1: Denise Barnes; District 3: Robert Nelson
