Joe Montes for Congress is the real deal. He has created jobs, run businesses and also prosecuted the bad guys.
The above resume represents more than trust-fund baby Doug LaMalfa has accomplished in his entire life. LaMalfa has been used to having everything his way and handed to him on a silver platter.
Perhaps this is why he is regularly seen staggering drunk in the halls of Congress now that he is in an environment where he can’t get his own way. The good ole days of wrecking a mustang under suspicious circumstances and having both the $16k bill and the circumstances mysteriously disappear are long gone for Mr. LaMalfa in the meat-grinder of Washington D.C.
Joe Montes has helped create over 200 jobs in Butte County. Doug LaMalfa and his family have ripped us all off for $6 million plus in farm welfare and LaMalfa voted for a bill to make tracking future farm welfare payments much more difficult.
Worse, LaMalfa’s scores from Conservative advocacy groups are horrendous. Heritage has given him a D. When LaMalfa ran for State Senate against Rick Keene, he falsely portrayed himself as a Conservative and as “One of Us”.
He was neither then, and still is not now. I know dozens, perhaps hundreds who were deceived in to believing that Doug LaMalfa was a conservative leader. They are off the reservation now and this is the nexus for the serious challenge to LaMalfa’s hegemony.
The powers that be set up a retirement-handoff for Doug LaMalfa a few years ago to get in to congress and are hastily arranging the deck chairs for LaMalfa’s impending retirement.
Vote for Joe Montes now and send two messages, 1. We are done with insider games and 2. We get to pick our own representatives.
