State Bank. Tax the super rich not the 99%. There are solutions for great education, economy, healthcare, environment, but they won't be implemented by corporate-financed politicians. If they win, you don't. I'm a political activist with over 20 years in IT/Information Technology in the financial world.

We need a Controller who will fight to close special interest tax loopholes and make big corporations pay their fair share. We need Betty Yee. We need a Controller who will bring tough-minded fiscal discipline to state government, serving as a fiscal watchdog over misspending and waste. We need Betty Yee. As a member of the Board of Equalization, Betty Yee safeguarded our tax dollars by calling out wasteful spending, identifying tax cheats who evade their obligations, and coming clean about unfunded liabilities. Betty Yee led efforts to crack down on the underground economy where unscrupulous businesses harm law-abiding taxpayers. She brought greater transparency and accountability to the Board, making it more responsive to taxpayers and constituents. She worked to make online retailers pay taxes on sales in California, just like merchants on Main Street do; to provide greater tax equity for same-sex couples; and to update tax rules to promote good jobs in a green economy. Betty Yee is extraordinarily well qualified and a recognized expert in state budgets and fiscal policy. She holds a Master's Degree in Public Administration and served as Chief Deputy Director for the Budget in the California Department of Finance. Betty Yee is proudly endorsed for Controller by the California Federation of Teachers, California Nurses Association, California National Organization for Women (NOW), and by Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America. Betty Yee will be a State Controller who will fight for California's families. For more information:
