Republican candidate for governor speaks in Grass Valley

Southern California Assemblyman Travis Allen, a GOP candidate for governor, spoke Tuesday evening in Grass Valley to about 100 local Republicans about his candidacy and leading the effort to repeal the new gas tax and auto fees recently signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. Allen pointed out that California’s voters have had no say in the tax increase despite Brown promising never to increase taxes without voter support.

Allen intends for voters to get their chance. He also exhorted Republicans to take heart in the possibility of a Republican winning the governor’s seat in 2018. He spoke at the Nevada County Realtors Association headquarters as part of an issues and policy discussion the local Republican Party holds monthly, called I-Squared.
