Lovers & Haters

What people say about Travis

Lovers

“The political courage he demonstrated as mayor bringing fiscal discipline to a city in crisis will serve him well in Sacramento if he is elected.”
LA Times Editorial Board
“Villaraigosa not only displayed an effective, judicious management style in persuading his City Council to restrain city spending during a budget-crippling recession; he won voters’ approval for ambitious transportation projects and beefed up his police force. ”
San Diego Union Tribune Editorial Board
“Even after she left office, she took on Willie Brown -- convened a group that reformed the Sunshine laws, collected signatures, went to ballot and won- a significant victory for open government. She doesn’t back down.”
Doug Comstock, Former ACT UP Activist and Civic Organizer

Haters

“Allen touts a California of the past, where everyone has a right to live in a single-family home with a lush lawn, where homeless people are carted off to institutions or sent on one-way bus trips out of state, where public schools are magically improved by private school vouchers, and roads are smooth and speedy even though the gas tax has been repealed. It's a fantasy, and Allen ought to know better.”
LA Times Editorial Board
“Allen’s attack-dog style and name-calling play well with Trump voters, but his shtick offers no reason to believe he could ever get elected or accomplish anything if elected.”
San Diego Union Tribune Commentary
