Governor Newsom Surveys Tamarack Fire Damage with Nevada Governor Sisolak, Meets with Fire and Emergency Officials.

Gardnerville, NV...California Governor Gavin Newsom and Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak surveyed a Tamarack Fire damage area and met with fire and emergency management personnel responding to the fire, which has burned 68,497 acres on both sides of the California-Nevada border. “We’re here in the spirit of partnership that unites all of us on the West Coast – Republican and Democratic states – confronting the devastating impacts of our climate crisis, from catastrophic wildfires to severe drought to deadly high temperatures,” said Governor Newsom. “We’re grateful for our long-standing emergency management relationships with Nevada, substantially at work in the response to this fire. Meeting our shared challenges in the years ahead will require all of us to build partnerships at a level never seen before.”



Governor Newsom and Governor Sisolak tour Tamarack Fire damage area



After surveying wildfire damage in Gardnerville, where many residents have lost their homes, the Governors, CAL FIRE Director Thom Porter and CAL OES Director Mark Ghilarducci visited the Incident Command Center operated from Douglas High School, where they joined a briefing by fire and emergency management personnel. Director Ghilarducci and Chief Porter also traveled to Alpine County, where they met with officials and Sheriff Rick Stephens who successfully evacuated residents and tourists from the fast-approaching wildfire.

Governor Newsom last week proclaimed a state of emergency for Alpine County due to the Tamarack Fire, which was ignited July 4 in a lightning strike in the Mokelumne Wilderness. CAL FIRE has deployed strike teams to protect people and property in Markleeville, and additional resources have been ordered to support the response to the fire through the mutual aid system, including local government engines, airtankers and helicopters. Over the past three years, CAL FIRE has worked in partnership with residents and local officials to conduct defensible space inspections on many structures in the Markleville community, an important measure to help protect homes.

Amid unparalleled risk of catastrophic wildfire driven by climate change impacts, Governor Newsom has invested $2.2 billion to build wildfire resiliency and advance emergency response, the largest such investment in state history. The funding supports additional firefighting crews, new firefighting equipment and expanded land and forest management efforts that save lives and protect communities.

Last week, California secured 12 additional firefighting aircraft, nine of which were immediately dispatched to combat new and emerging fires.

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.

While Gavy goes out with his 501’s that he wore when he was in high school, pandering to the cameras, looks to me that he feels it necessary to smooth the young firemen. If given the chance my guess is that atleast half of these workers would like to kick Gavy’s arse. He doesn’t have a clue about most issues facing California, including water storage, homelessness that is totally overrunning our towns, putting criminals in prison, on and on. Why is it so difficult for Libtards to tackle real issues? There is no reason to rehire a loser, try something different, Libtards have gotten us no where!

      If you are a Democrap then why are you watching Fox News? You should be watching CNN=Communist Network News. Fox News does not tell people to not wear masks so stop spreading lies.

        All fox new knows how to do is lie. This is why their channel is called entertainment news. Let me guess, you didn't know this. It actually went to court years and years ago. Fox News is pretty funny actually. Bunch of racist morons with talking rectums.

        Watching FauxNews gives an intelligent person a perspective of what some think is happening in the country.
        Tucker, Hannity, and Piro give opinions rather than presenting news or facts.
        Keep your friends close and your enemies closer give the intelligent person a perspective of what some think.
        GOP congressmen think that sitting in Congress without a mask is a choice.
        Spreading the virus amongst like minded individuals will only prove a point.
        Good luck.
