Candidate for governor proposes radical changes to California government

Candidate for governor proposes radical changes to California government

As a Republican running for governor in one of the nation’s most Democratic states, but gubernatorial candidate John Cox believes the voters want change.

“I didn’t just roll out of bed and want to do this,” said Cox, who lives in the San Diego County community of Rancho Santa Fe. “The public gets it. They know that Sacramento is corrupt. They know it’s owned by the special interests, the big businesses and the big labor interests. They want a change.”

Cox said he believes the path to improving California’s political landscape shrinking the size of the state’s sprawling government, and to do that he’s proposing an initiative that would shrink the state’s legislative districts.

“It’s called the neighborhood legislature,” said Cox, said he’s hoping to have the initiative on the November 2018 ballot, which coincides with the race for the governor. “It chops the big districts California has into little tiny little pieces, but 99 percent of these additional legislators stay home. We still send only 120 to Sacramento.

“What you’ve done by making the district so tiny is that you’ve taken away the big money from the unions and the big businesses.”

Listen to the rest of Cox’s interview with Richard Beene on June 13.
