Speaking:  David Wolfe, Legislative Director,

Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

David Wolfe has worked for five years with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association. In this capacity, he monitors the Legislature closely, writing position letters and testifying on hundreds of bills. Dozens of these would have severely undercut Propositions 13 and 218, the main priorities of the Association. His other responsibilities include putting together an annual Report Card for all 120 legislators, and contributing to the HJTA quarterly publication “Taxing Times.” He has also worked on a variety of initiative campaigns to defeat unreasonable taxation and advocate for property rights. Having sat through hundreds of hours of budget hearings, he also can speak broadly on Sacramento’s spending habits.
Prior to joining HJTA, Wolfe spent a year in the State Capitol. He graduated from Sonoma State University in 2005 with a B.A. in History and a minor in Political Science.

Speaking:  Mark Meckler, Co-Founder, Tea Party Patriots

Mark Meckler, since the organization’s founding, has shared the role of national coordinator with co-founder Jenny Beth Martin. Tea Party Patriots is an American political organization that promotes “fiscally responsible” activism as part of the Tea Party movement. Its mission is “to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.” The group is a strong opponent of excess government spending and debt. Although Mark has resigned his position due to differences of opinion on policy, he and Jenny Beth Martin wrote the book “Tea Party Patriots: the Second American Revolution.”

Also, Mark continues to work for the cause with many TV appearances and travel around the country.
