Over 43 days ago, we at Level the Playing Field, a coalition of nurses, teachers, and other working Californians, called on Meg Whitman to do the right thing and make her tax returns public.
Whitman agreed to release those tax returns – even saying she would release 25 years of her tax returns if other candidates did too.
Two weeks later, she flip-flopped. She broke her promise and now refuses to release her tax returns.
Since then, the San Jose Mercury News, Monterey County Herald, Vallejo Times Herald, and Marin Independent Journal have all called on Meg Whitman to keep her promise and release her tax returns.
Why is Meg Whitman flip-flopping on releasing her taxes? We don’t know, but we aim to find out, and you can help.
Sign our letter to Meg Whitman requesting that she stop flip-flopping and release her taxes.
Tax Day is one week away and regular Californians who work hard and play by the rules will be filing their tax returns on that day – so we need you to sign this letter now!
Whitman has committed to spending $150 million to convince voters that it’s time for leaders in California to “mean what they say, and say what they mean.”
How can she break such a basic promise as the one she made to release her tax returns?
A person’s tax returns reveal core truths about the content of their character: what their values are, whether they play by the rules, and in Meg’s case, what type of leader she would be.
We need your help to make sure Meg Whitman does not get away with flip-flopping on simple promises that she makes to voters. We need your help to make sure that she doesn’t get away with winning the Governor’s office without ever releasing her records.
The clock is still ticking…43 days and counting since we asked for her to do what every major candidate for office has done and release her tax returns.
Help us keep up the pressure. Hold Meg Whitman accountable for her public promises.
