Post-Election Message from Jeff

I would like to thank all of the people who helped me during the 2022 election season! Thank you to everyone who voted for me! Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and energy to assist me with my campaign! Thank you to everyone who contributed money to this campaign! I am very proud of our achievements in getting the message of “Love, Liberty and Limited Government” out to the public! Because I represent the average, middle-class taxpayer and not the the wealthy special interests who fund crony politicians handsomely in anticipation of special handouts and favors from Big Government, we did not raise nearly enough money as did the Corporate-Crony candidates who won. Those candidates who won outspent us by a factor of more than 10 to 1!  For the amount of money our campaign spent, we did very well, earning 7163 votes!  We got far more “bang for the buck” than every other one of the top eight opponents running!   For example, the committee for the top vote-getter spent more than $104,000 in campaign funds to get around 26,000 votes, whereas my committee spent about one-twentieth that amount to earn 7163 votes.  That means that we earned around 10 times as many votes per dollar spent than that other candidate.  Likewise, we earned far more votes per dollar spent than any other of the top eight competitors in the race.  I am very proud of this achievement.  I was extremely judicious in the use of the small amount of money that was donated to my campaign.

The Love and Liberty Philosophy

Jeff Schwartz has a passion for the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and the heritage of freedom we’ve been blessed with since 1776.  He’s spent 30 years of his life advocating bold and innovative ideas about how we can promote LOVE and HARMONY, LOWER YOUR TAXES, and improve your life WITHOUT increasing the cost of government, and WITHOUT infringing upon any of your individual liberties.

Jeff’s viewpoint is as American as apple pie and resonates with the majority of Americans. He cares about EVERYBODY’S rights and freedoms.

Love and liberty bring people together! Let’s LOWER YOUR TAXES, restore the American Dream, and bring back the good old days of love, peace, and harmony.

Stop the Government Waste and Abuse!

Drain the Swamp! Jeff Schwartz for T.O. Council

I want to empower you, the citizen, to have more freedom of choice and more options in your life. I advocate reforms that will allow the city government to require less of your hard-earned money, thereby reducing the need for high taxes and inflation.

To begin the process of reforming government and making our lives better, we need a voice in government who can articulate these bold, new ideas and bring them up for discussion and consideration.

We owe it to our children and our grandchildren to leave them with a country that’s as free as the country we grew up in. Please join me in my quest to bring bold, new ideas involving individual liberty and personal responsibility to our City Council.

I Want to Empower You!

Slash Property Taxes?

Since 1978, California’s Proposition 13 has saved taxpayers billions of dollars in taxes. What if we strengthened Prop 13 so that ALL property owners get their property taxes reduced even more?  This would create massively lower tax bills, stimulate new housing, super-charge our local economy, and cause landlords to voluntarily reduce the rents on apartments.

Slash Sales Taxes?

Could we super-charge our local economy by reducing or eliminating local sales tax? If Thousand Oaks could set its sales tax rate lower than that of surrounding communities, would out-of-town shoppers flock to our city in droves to make purchases of big-ticket items like cars, trucks, appliances, and furniture? Would these increased sales  stimulate our businesses and create more jobs?

Slash Local Income Taxes?

California has one of the highest income tax rates in the county. What if we were to stimulate our local economy by reducing reckless or unnecessary spending by the City of T.O.? By saving money, could we justify reducing local income taxes?  Could that make us all better off and more prosperous?

Jeff Schwartz on Love and Liberty:
Big Government Is Failing Us

Our system of big, over-controlling government has been a colossal failure time after time.  Despite an 85-year-old “War on Poverty” and “War on Homelessness,” our poverty and homelessness problems are not getting better.  

We can have a city that’s more prosperous, peaceful, harmonious, and safe. All we need to do is to start implementing policies that promote individual liberty, freedom of choice, voluntary action, and personal responsibility. Almost every problem we face today can be improved by empowering our citizens with more freedom and more personal responsibility.

Let's Stay Free!

I was a vocal proponent of voluntary methods of dealing with the “Virus Panic” of 2020 to 2022. I oppose all government “mandates” that violate your basic human rights. I will never vote to close down businesses in emergency, and will always defend your right of peaceable assembly and your right to go to gyms, restaurants, and stores.

Inflation/Economy

Inflation is surging and eating away at our savings and our standard of living. Inflation is caused by excessive government spending. Let’s respect our future generations and not saddle them with our debts. Let’s identify and eliminate waste and reckless overspending.

Stop Waste, Fraud, Abuse

Let’s stop approving wasteful

tax-funded boondoggles that end up defrauding the taxpayers and resulting in financial fiascos.

Public Safety/Crime

Public safety must be a top priority. Let’s make Thousand Oaks the safest city in California. Let’s not be soft on law enforcement. Let’s also support our Constitution.

Water Shortages

 A major cause of our perpetual water crisis has been government giving away 80% of California’s water to special interests at highly subsidized rates. Would it be possible to end the water shortages by ending the water subsidies to special interests?
