Silicon Valley Taxpayers Association is dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of the taxpayers of Silicon Valley against the over–reaching and over–spending of government.
We invite you to join us in that mission!
Please join us at our September 18th Taxpayer Toolkit to hear our featured speaker: David Wolfe, Legislative Director at the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. We will also have information on the many ballot measures appearing on the November 4th General Election ballot.
