ROBERT A KROBOTH
for Mayor, City of
There are those who say that when
I am mayor, there will be a radical change in government. They are correct. I do not consider myself a radical, just an
average citizen that has had enough of prevailing
The major cause of inflation is government debt.
I am against public-private partnerships and tax increment financing; they simply plunder the public purse. How many times do we burn the fingers of the taxpayers before we stop holding their hands to the fire?
I am for privatizing city owned public golf courses; either sale or lease. Currently, they do not pay property taxes. If children in this state should have to pay tax on their candy, golfers at public financed golf courses should pay their share of taxes. This is unfair competition for private golf courses that pay taxes. I realize that candy is dandy, but golfing will not rot your teeth.
If the city council will privatize city owned public golf courses and reduce their own salaries, including that of city council president, by 50%, I will reduce my own salary as mayor to $48,000.00 annually.
By over spending and over
taxation, government has put this country into a depression and created an
underground economy. At the present time,
federal, state and local governments in the
Elected government representatives that pass unnecessary government debt on to their children and grandchildren are child molesters.
I believe in self-determination and separation of church and state.
For many years,
We do not have an ample
water supply. When the water table gets
low, we have earthquakes. The epicenter
The United States Constitution Article 4 states:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
I will not appear at any so‑called debates because they are simply not debates, but ignorant questions from ignorant people, most of whom are the stooges of candidates. If we had a League of Men Voters, they would call us “male chauvinist pigs”.
I do not accept campaign contributions.
Because my spectrum of philosophy is so extensive, I will not be giving interviews; and, therefore, have a website. Please visit it at WWW.CitizenGadfly.Com
I have no respect for the status quo. No one calls me a good ol’ boy.
There are those who say that I do not look like a mayor and do not instill confidence by the way I dress. When was the last time you saw a doctor wearing a suit and tie in surgery?

The emergency ordinance

World War II got us out of the great depression. We have been on a war time economy ever since. Any country can only stay on a war time economy so long and it is back in a depression. This is not a recession. This is a depression.
The hardest hit industry is the construction industry. The solution is to lower the sales tax on construction materials to zero percent for one calendar year. The next year, raise to 1%. Every year thereafter, raise an additional 1% until it is back to this ridiculous 8+%.
Construction workers spend and that puts other people back to work. Federal construction projects help, but we must inspire private investment. Also, the federal government does not pay state sales tax on construction materials.
