Why the Incumbent Needs to Go

Does Al Adam Waste Taxpayers' Money On Cronyism?

Jeff Schwartz Exposes Al Adam's Questionable Actions

Incumbent Mayor Al Adam spent thousands of dollars of taxpayer-funded City resources and City staff time to produce and publish professional-quality videos that were used to advertise, promote, and benefit two private crony corporations whose executives had given Adam significant campaign donations shortly before or after the videos were produced. I think this was misuse of taxpayers’ money. It gives the appearance of government favoritism and cronyism, and suggests “pay for play.” When a politician uses tax money to specifically benefit two businesses like this, he is displaying political favoritism. This puts all competing businesses at a relative disadvantage to the one or two businesses which were given tax-funded favors.  I don’t think that the proper role of government is to spend tax money in order to grant special favors for campaign contributors and their businesses. Instead, government should establish a fair and level playing field for all businesses. Voters should say “no” to government favoritism and corporate cronyism.

I want to empower you, the citizen, to have more freedom of choice and more options in your life. I advocate reforms that will allow the city government to require less of your hard-earned money, thereby reducing the need for high taxes and inflation.

We owe it to our children and our grandchildren to leave them with a country that’s as free as the country we grew up in. Please join me in my quest to rein in waste, fraud, and abuse, and reduce your taxes!

Slash Property Taxes?

Since 1978, California’s Proposition 13 has saved taxpayers billions of dollars in taxes. What if we strengthened Prop 13 so that ALL property owners get their property taxes reduced even more?  This would create massively lower tax bills, stimulate new housing, super-charge our local economy, and cause landlords to voluntarily reduce the rents on apartments.

Slash Sales Taxes?

Could we super-charge our local economy by reducing or eliminating local sales tax? If Thousand Oaks could set its sales tax rate lower than that of surrounding communities, would out-of-town shoppers flock to our city in droves to make purchases of big-ticket items like cars, trucks, appliances, and furniture? Would these increased sales  stimulate our businesses and create more jobs?

Slash Red Tape?

What if we were to stimulate our local economy by reducing excesssive or unnecessary regulations and red tape? Could that make us all better off and more prosperous?

Jeff Schwartz on Love and Liberty:
Big Government Is Failing Us

Our system of big, over-controlling government has been a colossal failure time after time.  Despite an 85-year-old “War on Poverty” and “War on Homelessness,” our poverty and homelessness problems are not getting better.  

We can have a city that’s more prosperous, peaceful, harmonious, and safe. All we need to do is to start implementing policies that promote individual liberty, freedom of choice, voluntary action, and personal responsibility. Almost every problem we face today can be improved by empowering our citizens with more freedom and more personal responsibility.

Let's Stay Free!

I was a vocal proponent of voluntary methods of dealing with the “Virus Panic” of 2020 to 2022. I oppose all government “mandates” that violate your basic human rights. I will never vote to close down businesses in emergency, and will always defend your right of peaceable assembly and your right to go to gyms, restaurants, and stores.

Inflation/Economy

Inflation is surging and eating away at our savings and our standard of living. Inflation is caused by excessive government spending. Let’s respect our future generations and not saddle them with our debts. Let’s identify and eliminate waste and reckless overspending.

Stop Waste, Fraud, Abuse

Let’s stop approving wasteful

tax-funded boondoggles that end up defrauding the taxpayers and resulting in financial fiascos.

Public Safety/Crime

Public safety must be a top priority. Let’s make Thousand Oaks the safest city in California. Let’s not be soft on law enforcement. Let’s also support our Constitution.

Water Shortages

 A major cause of our perpetual water crisis has been government giving away 80% of California’s water to special interests at highly subsidized rates. Would it be possible to end the water shortages by ending the water subsidies to special interests?
