The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots announced George Runner, Vice Chair, California State Board of Equalization, will be the Special Guest Speaker for their Monday, June 19, 2017 meeting.

George Runner is a former California State Assemblyman and former California State Senator. In 2002, Runner authored California's AMBER Alert system, which has successfully utilized the Emergency Alert System to involve the general public in the search for abducted children and has aided in numerous successful parent-child reunions. As our elected taxpayer advocate on the Board of Equalization, George Runner is fighting to make sure all Californians are treated fairly and to promote tax policies that help grow our economy. He is always open to hearing our ideas on how we can work together to solve the toughest problems facing our state.

His presentation will cover the controversial healthcare bill making its way through the state legislature. SB 562 implements a single-payer healthcare system that would cost the state $400 billion per year, more than three times the current state budget. Also, of concern are the $52 billion tax at the gas pump and vehicle registration increase, the sales tax on services, and California vs the nation.

Don’t forget – Our regular feature In The News will follow our Special Guest Speaker. The issues of the day will be discussed.

The meeting will be at the Church of Glad Tidings, 1179 Eager Road, Yuba City. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no membership requirement and no charge. Doors open at 6:00 pm; come early to socialize with like-minded neighbors, enjoy the refreshments, and get a front-row seat.

Contact Larry Virga at (530) 755-4409.
