Todd Royal for Assembly District 43
Today, Thursday, Oct. 23 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the La Cañada YMCA there will be a town hall meeting with Todd Royal. He is running for Assembly District 43. Hear firsthand his focus on creating jobs, fixing the economy and improving education.
Our present Assemblyman Mr. Mike Gatto is also running for this position. We know who he is by his financial contributors. One of them happens to be the California Teacher Union. His voting history tells us if he is aligned with our values. According to www.leginfo.legislature.ca.gov he voted yes on AB 1266 Transgender Bill and AB 1444 Mandatory Kindergarten.
The Transgender Bill, AB 1266, would allow children to compete athletically and use facilities consistent with his or her self-determined identity, regardless of the gender listed on the pupil’s records. This group represents less than 1% of our population. How can our daughters compete in sports with boys who self-identify as girls? What about the rights of girls being forced to share bathrooms with such boys? When Todd Royal is elected, he will repeal this law.
The Mandatory Kindergarten Bill AB 1444 was supported by the California Teacher Union. It would have required a mandatory 13 years of schooling instead of the current 12 years. This law would have created dues-paying teacher jobs to help boost its membership and replace its coffers. Fortunately, it was vetoed. Please refer to www.UnionWatch.org.
Come to the town hall meeting and meet Todd Royal. It is time for change. Let’s elect someone who shares our values.
