We Can’t Trust Todd Gloria
The Mileage Tax Won’t Be Dead Until We Elect New Leaders to SANDAG
Reform California Continues County-Wide Campaign to Block Costly Tax Hikes Proposed by SANDAG and Todd Gloria
San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria (D) today released a carefully worded statement saying he wants to drop the idea of a Mileage Tax “for now” but today announced he will STILL VOTE FOR the Mileage Tax included in the SANDAG Regional Transportation Plan next week. Gloria claims he will “remove” the Mileage Tax later on.
In response, Carl DeMaio, Chairman of Reform California and leader of the campaign opposing the Mileage Tax proposal offers the following statement:
“When it comes to costly tax hikes, we don’t trust Todd Gloria for a second. Todd Gloria says he doesn’t want a Mileage Tax right now, but he still intends to vote for the SANDAG plan that includes a Mileage Tax! Todd Gloria is simply playing political games to buy some time because he is still backing a massive sales tax hike being put on the November election.
Gloria can say he will remove the Mileage Tax at a future date, but he has shown time and time again to be completely untrustworthy and dishonest when it comes to tax hikes. We have no doubt he and his cohorts will impose a Mileage Tax after the November 2022 election.
San Diego drivers will not be safe from a costly Mileage Tax until we replace Todd Gloria and other SANDAG board members with new leaders who will oppose all tax hikes and force SANDAG to fulfill its promises made to taxpayers to fix our roads.”
