Unlike the current Controller, we need a Controller like Konstantinos Roditis that has not and will not take lobbyist, PAC, union, corporate, or special interest money. A Controller that will be the Chief Taxpayer Watchdog California wants and desperately needs. A Controller for the People.
As a hardworking principled businessman, I have experienced government corruption from politicians that do the bidding of special interest. I have refused to play their games, and even though it has cost me financially, I have never waivered from my principles of doing what is right.
Our politicians should be looking out for us and seeking to make life better for us not finding new ways to tax us and give our hard earned tax dollars to special interest groups, unions, and big business.
Our Controller needs to be rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse and seeking to make California more affordable not turning a blind eye to the reckless waste in Sacramento.
And that is why I’m running for Controller. To serve you and together with your vote and support, we can turn California around and make it the Golden State once again. Join me in my fight to save the American Dream in California.
Defund the High-Speed Rail
From a $9.95 billion bond in 2008 (Prop 1A) to an estimated $98.1 billion total cost today. From 800 miles of track to 520 miles. From 220 mph, now up to 1/3 of the track will have speed restrictions of up to 110 mph. From a completion date of 2020 to an unlikely completion date of 2033 now.
With cost overruns, time delays, building bridges and tearing them down because they don’t meet code, no longer environmentally friendly, won’t solve traffic congestion problems, you would assume the Controller would audit and investigate this disaster and protect taxpayers.
Unfortunately, the current Controller refuses to audit the so-called High-Speed Rail and turns a blind eye to the disaster that has become the High-Speed Rail. Maybe because the current Controller is not principled like Konstantinos Roditis. The current Controller has not refused to take lobbyist, PAC, union, corporate, or special interest money.
As your next Controller, Konstantinos Roditis will not only audit the High-Speed Rail but he will defund it on day-one because it violates the funding parameters of Prop 1A, which requires 1/3 of funding come from Private Investors and 1/3 from the Federal Government. No Private or Federal money exist. We shouldn’t be funding this disaster and Konstantinos Roditis will protect you the taxpayer, and not the High-Speed Rail Special Interest Groups.
Stop the Service and Labor Tax!
The current Controller doesn’t think you pay enough taxes and wants a new Service Tax on Labor. She wants to tax your doctor’s visit, childcare, home and vehicle repairs, haircut; you name it she wants to tax it.
The result, at least $120 billion in new taxes per year, costing you thousands more a year in taxes.
No on a Service and Labor Tax. Californians can’t afford it. As Controller, Konstantinos Roditis will fight to make California affordable, not seeking new ways to tax you.
Repeal the Gas Tax Increase – Yes on Prop 6
Sacramento wastes billions of dollars and only uses 20% of our gas tax towards road repairs. According to the Reason Foundation, we pay up to 470% more to maintain one mile of highway compared to other states. We have more than enough money, to fix our roads without a tax increase.
Vote Yes on Prop 6, if not you are saying it’s okay for politicians to waste your money. As Controller, Konstantinos Roditis will expose and stop the corrupt political backroom deals and end the waste, fraud, and abuse. Konstantinos Roditis will make sure your tax dollars are going towards fixing our roads, not increasing your taxes so they can use the money to build toll roads and then charge you to drive on roads you already paid for.
Environmentally Smart Policies
Don’t waste billions of gallons of water and refuse to capture it and then look to tax us for using more than 55-gallons of water a day. Konstantinos Roditis will focus on enviromentally smart solutions, not tax increases.
It’s time for a principled and independent-minded Controller that works for you, not the corrupt political machine in Sacramento.
Konstantinos Roditis has not and will not take lobbyist, PAC, union, corporate, or special interest money. This campaign is 100% grassroots funded by hardworking taxpayers like you.
Konstantinos Roditis cannot be bought off. He is a man of principles and integrity. Konstantinos Roditis is the person we need as our next State Controller, because the current Controller has failed to execute the duties of the Controller’s office faithfully, and it is time for a change. It’s time for Konstantinos Roditis as our next State Controller.
Vote to make California affordable. Vote for solutions, not tax increases. Vote Konstantinos Roditis for Controller.
