I’m an optimist, a “hope springs eternal” type of person. But California’s brand is crisis and it simply doesn’t have to be like this. The ideas and solutions are right in front of us, but it will take courage to get things done.
“It’s ridiculous that while the state’s coffers are overflowing with cash, average Californians are struggling to buy the basics,” said Assembly Member Suzette Martinez Valladares, R-Santa Clarita.

“Hard-working Californians need relief now,” said Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares, R- Santa Clarita, in a statement released via social media. “We must suspend the gas tax immediately to ease the pain at the pump. Other states have suspended their gas taxes and prices dropped within hours. Californians deserve the same immediate relief.”
“Crime victims shouldn’t have to fend for themselves while navigating our complex legal system,” Valladares said. “My common-sense proposals will ensure that crime victims’ voices will be heard and respected during the parole process, regardless of Gascón’s dangerous and misguided policies.”
"I think Republicans have been very clear that we are asking for a 'gas tax holiday.' Families want to feel that immediate reprieve at the pump," Martinez Valladares said, adding, "We all know that the gas tax in California is regressive. It affects, I think, communities of color most. It affects working-class families most."
“From crime to homelessness to better opportunities for their kids, there is no shortage of quality-of-life issues,” Assemblymember Suzette Valladares said in a video released by the caucus. “It just costs too much to live yet alone thrive in California.”
