Lackey Endorsed by Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association
Lackey is Best Choice for Taxpayers
Palmdale – Retired California Highway Patrol Sergeant and Assembly candidate Tom Lackey has just received the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association works to advance taxpayers’ rights, especially the right to limited taxation, the right to vote on tax increases, and the right of efficient use of taxpayer dollars. More than a quarter-million taxpayers support the Association, and it uses a report card to help Californians evaluate their state representatives’ performance on crucial issues.
Lackey said, “It is such an honor to receive their endorsement. At a time when the economy is doing poorly and many families have lost their jobs and even homes, it is crucial to look out for our taxpayers by opposing wasteful spending and weighty taxes. I hope to continue making my community proud as a member of the Assembly.”
As an Assemblyman, Lackey will use his experience to fight for lower taxes, increase public safety, secure education improvements, and promote job growth through private sector economic development.
Lackey was raised in the town of Boron in Kern County. For almost 30 years, he served as a California Highway Patrolman before retiring as Sergeant. Since then, he has been elected to 3 terms on the Palmdale City Council, and he currently holds the position of Mayor Pro Tem for the second time. As Mayor Pro Tem, Lackey has advocated strongly for lower taxes and job growth through private sector development, and he has sought to ensure the use of taxpayer money for important concerns such as public safety and public education.
Lackey has proven that he is a strong conservative leader. He is an elected member of the Los Angeles County Republican Central Committee as well as a member of the Antelope Valley Republican Assembly.
Lackey has extensive leadership and experience in many aspects of local government. He has held positions on the Palmdale Elementary School District Board of Trustees, the Antelope Valley School Board Association, the Citizens Advisory Committee for California State Prison- Los Angeles County, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority Board, the Metrolink Southern California Regional Rail Authority, the Los Angeles County Sanitation District, the California Contract Cities Association, and the Antelope Valley Crime and Human Relations Task Force.
