Brown For Governor Campaign

LOS ANGELES - Building on the groundswell of support for Attorney General and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Jerry Brown, the Brown Campaign tomorrow will hold more than 70 volunteer-driven events throughout California to register voters, get-out-the-vote and ensure victory on election day.

"Meg Whitman can hire every high-priced consultant in the country and blanket every television in California with false ads, but that won't match the power and impact of our grassroots support," Brown said. "From the ground up, we have built a volunteer-driven campaign that will lead us to victory in November."

Brown Denounces Oil-Addicting Proposition 23 and Calls on Whitman to Explain Double Talk

Brown For Governor Campaign

NEWARK, Calif. - Appearing at the nation's largest, privately-owned solar and roofing company, Attorney General Jerry Brown today denounced Texas oil-funded Proposition 23, and called on Meg Whitman to be honest with Californians about her plans to dismantle the state's program to fight global warming.

"Meg Whitman talks a big game about the need for green innovation, jobs and technology, yet she's willing to quash the very program that has allowed for this industry's tremendous growth," Brown said. "Californians need to know that even if Proposition 23 fails, Meg Whitman plans to take the baton from the oil companies and roll back our clean air and energy standards."

Proposition 23 would suspend California's landmark program to combat global warming until unemployment reaches 5.5% for a full year - a mark hit only three times in the past thirty years.

"Attempts to shelve the state's landmark law to combat climate change are regressive, short-sighted and counter-productive, and I urge Californians to vote no on Proposition 23," Brown said. "While Texas oil pumps millions into the yes campaign, Meg Whitman continues to flip and flop her way out of taking a real stance on this harmful measure."
