The recall election of Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is a partisan power grab led by Right wing Trump supporting elements of the Republican Party. This Republican forced special election is very costly to we taxpayers (over 200 million dollars), and is a politically partisan attempt to disrupt our recovery and undermine our democracy. Governor Newsom has high approval ratings, but the Republicans are counting on low turnout by Democrats.
Ballots have been MAILED to all California registered voters beginning in mid August 2021. Don’t delay!
Governor Newsom has led our state of California, the largest economy in the United States, through this devastating pandemic by rolling out the vaccine quickly, supporting working families with state stimulus checks, taking on the fossil fuel industry contributing to climate change, creating education, jobs, and mental health programs, and has maintained a billion dollar budget surplus. We have experienced a world wide crisis that few leaders could have navigated as expertly and knowledgeable as Governor Newsom.
Our state is a leader in managing the reopening because of the leadership of Governor Newsom. Governor Newsom has workable plans based on real time data and hands on experience to continue leading our state in the future, including coordinating diverse communities, medical experts, and recovery resources. This has been a horrific time in history. We must stay the course.
It is shameful and destructive that there are devious forces who continue to create problems for political gain. A disruption in our progress would be a devastating mistake, especially by installing someone unknown, unproven, and inexperienced. These “replacement” candidates are backed by the extreme right wing of the Republican Party who advocate continuing the minority voting restrictions movement, deny climate change, are against a living wage, have minimized the attack on our U.S. Capitol on January 6th, promote bizarre conspiracy theories, and have as their advocates several disgraced and discredited Trump cronies and other nefarious Trump supporting characters. They are very versed in playing on the fears and anxieties of vulnerable people. This pandemic is worse because of THEM, and now they want to capitalize on the grief and upheaval THEY caused with even more false information and fear mongering.
VOTE NO. Return the mail in ballot as soon as you receive it (sign the envelope).
