Art Olivier, the former mayor and 2000 Vice Presidential candidate, announced today that he will be the Libertarian candidate for governor. Olivier expects to the choice for conservative voters who feel that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has abandoned them with his high spending and Democratic appointments.

Art Olivier, the former mayor of Bellflower, announced today that he will challenge Arnold Schwarzenegger for governor. “The Governor broke his promise for fiscal restraint with his budget that is 30% higher than the one that got Davis recalled just three years ago,” said Olivier.

If elected, Olivier would work hard to reduce the cost of government. “The only benefit the state should provide to people that are here illegally is transportation back to their place of origin. Benefits for government workers should not exceed benefits earned by the taxpayers. Using market rates instead of prevailing wages will reduce the cost of all public sector construction and the depression era Field Act should be repelled so classrooms can be economically built.”

Olivier believes that no one should be forced to join a union and that some public services can be performed better and cheaper by private companies.

He stated that the government needs to allow; the construction of oil refineries to bring down the price of gas, power plants to be built to avoid blackouts and more private tolls roads to built to ease gridlock.

“With common sense changes in how California is governed, additional bonds for infrastructure would be unnecessary and after our current massive deficit is turned into a surplus, taxes would be cut,” said Olivier.

Art Olivier was an engineer at Boeing for 20 years and now builds homes in Bellflower. Art, his wife Joyce and their four children live in Bellflower. He was the Libertarian candidate for Vice President in 2000 on the ticket headed by Harry Browne who passed away on March 1 from Lou Gehrig's disease.
