SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - At their December meeting, the Board of Directors of the Sacramento Taxpayers Association (SacTax) unanimously voted to elect W. Bruce Lee as President for a third term.  Last year Bruce valiantly led SacTax to defeat measures to increase taxes that would have contributed to the taxpayers’ burden as California faces some of the highest taxes in the nation.  Sacramento County’s Measure A"'a half cent, 40-year sales tax increase; the City of Citrus Height’s Measure M -- the one-cent sales tax increase with no sunset provision; state Proposition 15"'the split roll property tax; and Sacramento County’s COVID-19 health ordinance which would have fined businesses up to $10,000 per incident were all defeated or withdrawn, marking huge wins for SacTax.

Also, earlier this year, Bruce received the prestigious Howard Jarvis 2020 Tax Fighter of the Year award, which honors an individual or group that demonstrates a dedication to protecting California taxpayers.  “Bruce is leading by example and helping taxpayers realize their voices and participation can make a difference and I’m so proud to be partnered with him,” said SacTax Executive Director, Jack Frost.

During his career, Bruce has twice held elected office as Mayor of Loomis, California and has served as a fiscal advisor at the local, state, and federal levels of government.  He currently authors bi-weekly articles titled “We the Government” which is locally syndicated by the Messenger Publishing Group.  Bruce is an international speaker and educator on good government, and through his involvement with SacTax, Bruce continuously strives to promote fair and efficient governance.
