Auburn resident “Bo” Bogdan I. Ambrozewicz made it official on Feb. 10 when he announced he is running for governor of California.
An independent, Ambrozewicz describes himself as a small business owner, architectural designer, builder, athlete, life coach and author; supporter of teachers, farmers, veterans and seniors; supporter of women’s and minority rights, equal pay for equal work and education reform.
An immigrant from Poland who came to the United States when he was only 10, Ambrozewicz said his plan is to reform government, in part by creating a part-time legislature with two term limits. Other reforms include eliminating closed-door meetings, reform of the election process, reduction of property taxes and changes to the educational system. He proposes to reduce the financial tax burden of seniors and to provide a plan to citizenship for immigrants without amnesty. He also wants to make California a more business-friendly state.
“Bo” said one of his promises would be to ask the attorney general and the fed to assign an independent prosecutor to investigate all the 40 legislators who attended extravagant fundraisers at the homes of lobbyists, plus the Bay Bridge project, Caltrans, the State Parks agency and Gov. Jerry Brown himself, who Ambrozewicz says is ultimately responsible for the corruption and cover ups in his administration.
Ambrozewicz last ran for office in 2012 when he campaigned against Sen. Ted Gaines in the first Senate District race. This race will be more costly with the filing fees to run for governor being $10,000 alone.
