Be it the Elk Grove Auto Mall or Gov. Gavin Newson - 'Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste'

The late British Prime minister Winston Churchill is widely credited with saying, "Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste," Heeding that sage advice this week has been the Elk Grove Auto Mall and Gov. Gavin Newsom.

With less than 28 hours until Elk Grove Measure E's one percent tax increase kicks in, Elk Grove Auto Mall dealers are widely promoting the additional costs to car buyers. While the one percent will not be that significant for your next Big Mac or 3 a.m. drive-thru tacos at Jack in the Box, depending on the price of a new car, it could add hundreds, if not thousands, to the purchase price of a new vehicle. 

The video below is airing on Comcast local TV ads and YouTube videos. 

Today also presented a crisis for former president Donald Trump who will be indicted next week in New York. As they often do, Trump and fellow MAGA Republicans used this crisis to raise money.

While he isn't facing a crisis, California Gov. Gavin Newsom is exploiting Trump's difficulties. A reader shared a text they received today from Newson appealing for - you guessed it - cash. 

The message arrived within about two hours of the breaking news on Trump. The text message sent to a reader can be viewed below. 

So as the clock ticks ever closer to Elk Grove's new tax and Trump's indictment, remember, Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste!

The irony of this is I believe the City gives an annual economic incentive to the auto mall association for marketing assistance. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!

I hope most Elk Grove residents know even if they boycott the Elk Grove Auto Mall and go elsewhere thinking they can avoid paying more, the sales tax increase follows you wherever you purchase a car. Talk about a Catch 22!

And speaking of the Elk Grove Auto Mall, didn't a former Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce president, speaking on behalf of the auto mall, promise that the auto mall would donate funds to be allocated to the community service grants if the Elk Grove City Council approved the first electronic reader board. Why the generous gift every year? Because the auto mall would be selling so many more cars. I wonder if the city is getting the money.
