    Governor Gavin Newsom Failed Californians
    Unaffordable housing. Record homelessness. Rising crime. Failing schools. Independent contractors thrown out of work. Exploding pension debt. And now, a locked down population while the prisons are emptied. Hold Gavin Newsom accountable. Gavin Newsom must go.
    VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom and here is why: Gavin Newsom’s policies are bad for California, bad for business, and he is soft on crime. Since taking office the problems facing us have grown and his policies have only made them worse. Everywhere you look, Gavin Newsom’s failures of are obvious. For the first time in history California population declined businesses closed, corporations left and a congressional seat was lost as a result. REBUILD the California, VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

    Governor Newsom is soft on crime. He signed SB 145 referred to as the “Pedophile Bill” into law. His mass release of prisoners have led to a spike in crime, increased homelessness and the deterioration of our great state. Californians pay the highest cost of living, the highest taxes of any state. Yet crime is soaring, electricity is unreliable, our roads are crumbling, our water supply is insufficient, water is rationed, and the mismanaged forests are burning. To make things worse he released many of the CDC fire crews, cut their budget and closed CDC fire camps. NOW he is closing Susanville State Prison, where fire crews were housed, eliminating a valuable resource and crippling the local economy. Gavin Newsom misled the people and lied about forest land cleared for fire prevention as California enters a dangerous fire season.

    VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

    Under Gavin Newsom our public schools have failed, California was ranked 37th, K – 12 nationwide and our kids have lost a year plus of vital learning. He removed the teacher’s authority to maintain discipline in the classroom and imposed the controversial sexual education curriculum.

    VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

    During 2021 Newsom’s Employment Development Department paid est. $31 billion tax dollars in fraudulent claims! He misused our gas tax money for purposes not intended and held those funds hostage to force state housing requirements on local municipalities. He now seeks to take local zoning away from cities and impose state mandates upon them through AB 9 and 10.

    He kept people from attending church, closed schools, supported open borders and the mass release of criminals while he closed our state and shut down the economy. Newsom is bad for California.

    VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom

    We saw an increase of 6.8% in homelessness between 2019 and 2020, the largest increase of any state in that time frame. California has the highest level of functional poverty in the U.S., Slightly more than 36 percent of California’s residents are at or near the poverty level, more than one third of its population. Gavin Newsom and the elite are getting richer while the average Californian is getting poorer. We cannot afford another 17 months of Gavin Newsom.

    This is a groundswell movement (Of THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE!). Citizens from all walks of life, the entire political spectrum, every ethnicity, culture and race support this recall.

    VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.
