Meg’s Lying About Jerry


I need to tell you an event that happened to me recently: An older friend said that she had heard that Jerry Brown would change Prop 13, and as she and her husband are retired she was worried and said she could not afford to live here if they increase her property tax. So, as I was worried for her, I called Jerry Brown’s office and got a call back this morning from his office telling me that Jerry Brown is not going to change Prop 13. As usual, Meg Whitman is making up lies about her opponent. How can we the people trust a liar like Meg to be our next governor? To add to that, Meg Whitman has no experience in being a politician, just like Arnold did not have when he became our governor, and seeing how he has not helped the Sate of California in any way we do not want a repeat of that. We need Jerry Brown as our next governor, not Meg Whitman.
