Tea Party Patriots: Andrew Kotyuk’s run for California Assembly, against Chad Mayes
Over the last couple months I have had the pleasure of being introduced to, and getting to know, Andrew Kotyuk. The San Jacinto City Councilman is also a successful businessman, and a pillar of his community. When Republican minority leader in the California State Assembly Chad Mayes decided to vote in favor of extending Cap and Trade to 2030, and essentially approving a gas tax increase that will soon go into effect with a rise in gas prices by about 67 cents per gallon, it triggered something in Kotyuk. He recognized that Mayes was not acting like a leader of the Republican Party, but instead a lap dog of the opposition.
