member of the California State Assembly
, representing District 72
. He was first elected to the chamber in 2012.
At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Allen served on the following committees:
Allen's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Creating Jobs Is Priority Number One
- Excerpt: "Californians need well paying jobs, but our leaders in Sacramento keep passing laws that force jobs elsewhere. They over-regulate and over-tax businesses and individuals, sending jobs to other states and even other countries."
- Balancing The Budget. Really.
- Excerpt: "Nobody argues about whether California’s budget is out of whack. That’s a given. But the solutions offered are the same every year. It’s raising taxes, accounting gimmicks, and issuing debt for our future generations to pay."
- Excerpt: "If you were to pay attention to the rhetoric coming out of Sacramento, you’d think the answer to every problem was more taxes, and more taxes alone. Californians are taxed enough! Our tax rate is one of the highest in the United States. "
- Support A Part Time Legislature
- Excerpt: "The Legislature only works 3 days a week, for just a few months out of the year. But for doing so, legislators are paid over $100,000 per year, given a free car to use, and are given gold–plated health insurance for themselves and their families. And that’s not to mention the perks they get from the Special interests."
- Excerpt: "It is a false choice to say we need higher taxes in order to improve education. We simply need to spend our money more wisely. The thousands of bureaucrats we keep in Sacramento, while teachers are getting laid off and class-sizes grow is ridiculous."
