Jerry Brown has a long, varied, and colorful history in California politics. Most anyone, friend or foe, would say he’s a maverick. He definitely does things in his own way and doesn’t much care what the crowd is doing. How many politicians would go from being governor of a state to mayor of a city in that state?
Along with saving the environment and fixing the schools [in the video announcing his candidacy for Calif. governor] he calls for 1) Truth on the budget. No more evasions, 2) No new taxes unless you the people vote for them, 3) Downsize state government and return decision and authority to the cities and counties. Say what? A liberal is saying downsize the government, and no new taxes?
