California’s Recall Election Tuesday, September 14, 2021

CALIFORNIA (September 13, 2021)— As of September 8, nearly 7 million voters have cast their ballots in California’s governor recall election.

Why Should Voter’s Vote To Yes To Recall Newsom

Since Gavin Newsom took office, our problems have gotten worse. Gavin Newsom promised to fix the homeless problem, yet California’s homeless population increased dramatically even while he spent Billions on programs that do not work. Newsom promised to make California more affordable, but prices for gas, food, and housing have surged, making life here unaffordable for many middle and lower-income families.

Gavin Newsom promised to make California safer, but crime and homelessness have spiked since he ordered the early release of nearly twenty thousand prison inmates. Now Newsom is giving another seventy-six thousand the chance to leave prison early, making matters even worse. Gavin Newsom has continually misled the public. He arrogantly claimed to increase fire protection, yet an investigation by the non-partisan Capitol Public Radio concluded otherwise. Newsom cut 150 million dollars from the state’s fire protection budget and he misled the public about his fire protection record. To make things worse, California had a strong inmate firefighting crew. Newsom released many fire crew inmates early and cut their budget.

In November, Newsom told Californians stay home, wear masks, avoid gathering with family and friends. Days later in violation of his orders, he attended a fancy dinner with lobbyists at the exclusive French Laundry restaurant—without masks or social distancing. Newsom also secretly authorized a contract for nearly one-billion-dollars to outsource mask production to a politically connected Chinese company. The Head of that company donated tens of thousands to Newsom’s Campaign. The company was wired half a Billion dollars, without legislature approval. The governor’s office has refused to release information about this publicly. NOTE: California manufacturers could have filled the same order.

Newsom’s Employment Development Department spent over $30 billion in fraudulent payments to criminals and prison inmates, while forcing hundreds of thousands struggling, out-of-work Californians to wait months for their money. Newsom continues to mislead us. California is not “Roaring Back”. Instead, it’s on life support. His arrogance and self-dealing have made our problems worse. Crime is soaring. Homicides up 31% in 2020. Our state now has the worst homeless problem on record and the highest gas prices nationwide. The cost of living has driven many families, businesses, and corporations out of state. Public schools rank 37th K–12 overall and our roads are crumbling. Between 2008 and 2017, California had 4,300 blackouts. On Newsom’s watch, there were 25,281 blackouts in 2019 alone. Our water rationed and mismanaged forests are burning.

We deserve better. We deserve a Governor who will be honest with us. Someone who will work to solve our state’s very real problems: the cost of living, homelessness, crime, failing schools.

Voters will be asked two questions on the recall ballot: First, “yes” or “no” on whether they want to recall Newsom. Second, they will be asked to select from a list of candidates from all parties who wish to replace him. Forty-six contenders have qualified for the ballot, but there is no well-known Democrat vying to replace him. (Newsom is not allowed to run as a replacement candidate).If a majority vote “yes” on the first question, Newsom is removed from office and the top candidate on the second question takes over, even if that person receives only a fraction of the vote. If a majority votes against recalling Newsom, he keeps his job and the results of the second question are irrelevant. There are no other initiatives or referenda on the ballot.
