Konstantinos Roditis doesn’t just want to lower your taxes, he wants to fundamentally change the way that tax dollars are spread around in California, giving less to Sacramento and more to local governments.

Born in Canada to Greek immigrants in the taxi cab business, Roditis started his own cab company in Anaheim fresh out of college. That experience, he says, opened his eyes to the state’s punishing regulatory environment and the need for his “trickle up taxation” plan.

Interests:

  • Local control
  • Tax policy in Switzerland
  • Coming up with state tax reform plans in his free time
  • Opposition to California’s high-speed rail project and higher gas taxes

Letters of Recommendation:

  • California Republican Party
  • California ProLife PAC
  • Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California
