National Tax Limitation Committee PAC Endorses Jeffries
(Riverside, CA) – Kevin Jeffries announced today that his campaign for Riverside County Supervisor (1st District) has received the endorsement of the National Tax Limitation Committee PAC.
The National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC) has been at work since 1975. They are one of the longest standing pro-taxpayer organizations in America.
“Kevin Jeffries has always been on the side of taxpayers. Kevin has fought both at the local and state level to keep taxes low and limit the growth of government. He has been an unwavering advocate for taxpayer rights and we are proud to endorse him as the next First District Supervisor,” said Lew Uhler Founder and President of The National Tax Limitation Committee and its PAC.
“The National Tax Limitation Committee is recognized across our state and nation for the work they have done to protect taxpayers. I’m honored to be endorsed by Lew and the NTLC PAC,” said Jeffries.
Jeffries has been a strong advocate on behalf of Riverside County Taxpayers since his election in 1990 to a local water district. Jeffries work to oppose unnecessary water and sewer rate increases and his successful efforts to repeal unfair water “standby” taxes helped establish Kevin as a leading tax fighter in Riverside County. In 1996 Jeffries was a local spokesman and advocate for the passage of Proposition 218 – the Right To Vote On Taxes Act, and for the past five years, Jeffries has been opposing efforts by the California State Legislature to circumvent Prop-218 by attempting to re-classify and approve new taxes as fees, including the recently adopted state Fire Tax (fee) on nearly 800,000 California homeowners.
The National Tax Limitation Committee PAC endorsement follows the recent announcement by both the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC and the Riverside County Deputy District Attorneys’ Associations endorsement of Jeffries for the First District Supervisor. Jeffries has already garnered the support of seven (7) area Mayors as well as 160 current and former elected officials, public safety officials and community and business leaders according to Stacy Nicola with the Jeffries campaign.
