Chances are you don't like something Congress is doing, or for that matter not doing. Only 11% of Americans approve of job done by our legislative branch. Count me among the 88%. Talking heads will debate this or that issue, but the true reason for our disapproval is fundamental and bipartisan. We can accept Congress won't always agree, but when a few take it upon themselves to short circuit our democratic process that's when we as voters take offense.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

West Covina, CA

June 28, 2014

Congressional Candidate Arturo Alas made the following statement about the City of Covina’s plan to spend more than $300,000 on a controversial surveillance programs: 

"It is wrong for the city of Covina to spy on its own residents, shoppers and businesspeople. It has been shown consistently that surveillance cameras do not improve public safety or prevent crime.  At best, cameras help to investigate and prosecute crimes after the fact.  At worse, they are a serious breach of our rights and civil liberties."

“The City Council of Covina was wrong to implement this surveillance and spend more than $300,000 of our money without prior notice to the people of Covina and without any public debate or comment. Residents and businesses owners have never been told what the capabilities of the systems actually are and how they will be used. The people of Covina should make the ultimate decision about whether or not their money is used to increase government surveillance of their own neighborhoods and businesses”

Alas continued, “I believe all Americans, and especially those in my district, have a constitutional right to privacy, which must be respected by law enforcement agencies and government.  Once our rights are lost, it is very difficult to get them back.”

Arturo Alas is a grassroots leader and local businessman.  A San Gabriel Valley native, Alas played professional soccer for several international teams before returning to Southern California and starting a successful real estate business.  Alas believes that the Federal government has become too large, too powerful, and too expensive.  A strong believer in individual rights, Alas believes we must get back to a Constitutional government and restore the free market principles that have made our nation great and our people prosperous.
