LODI, CA, May 21, 2012 – Two prominent taxpayer advocates this week announced

their endorsements of Ricky Gill, a Republican candidate for Congress in California’s 9th District.

Gill earned the endorsements of both the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association Political Action Committee and Lew Uhler, Founder and President of the National Tax-Limitation Committee.

“I’m honored to have earned the support of these grassroots taxpayer organizations,” said Gill. “If elected, I will fight to give taxpayers the smaller, smarter, more responsible government they deserve in Washington.”
