Brian Maienschein Uses Taxpayer Money to Bolster Reelection Bid

The newly-minted Democrat sent out two taxpayer-funded mailers in one week

(San Diego, CA) – Thousands of political mailers hit the 77th Assembly District last week from newly-minted Democrat Assemblyman Brian Maienschein in an apparent use of the controversial California law that allows legislators to send taxpayer-funded mailers to constituents.

“We’re asking Assemblyman Maienschein to come clean,” said June Cutter’s consultant Duane Dichiara. “How much taxpayer money was spent on these mailings? Will he return that money to taxpayers? Will the Assemblyman promise to stop using this controversial loophole to campaign on the taxpayer’s dime? Would the Assemblyman be willing to sit down with the local media and explain why these mailings are vital to serving his constituency (if so, we are happy to set the time and place… I’ll even bring the coffee)?"

“Transparency is a vital part of fostering trust between elected officials and the people they represent,” said June Cutter. “As your Assemblywoman I will promote government accountability, not shady political games at California taxpayers’ expense.”

The 77th District encompasses northern San Diego and portions of North County, including the city of Poway. It also contains the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The District’s voter registration is nearly evenly split between Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.

June Cutter is an accomplished attorney, small business owner, proud wife to a former Naval Flight Officer, and a mom to two children. June is running for Assembly to stand up to Sacramento special interests and to improve the lives of California’s hardworking middle class.
