Voters Know CA Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Troubles Began Before Pandemic
(CALIFORNIA GLOBE) – A more contrite-sounding California Gov. Gavin Newsom is now acknowledging some of his mistakes in the handling of the coronavirus pandemic, however, he still doesn’t understand that it’s much more than the pandemic snafus that are fueling the RecallGavin2020 movement. Because is it a movement now.
It appears the people of California will try to right this ship through a recall election, before it becomes the Titanic.
Newsom has been a disaster for California and has a long history of failures going back to when he was on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and then when he was known as “Mayor McHottie” of San Francisco. But he’s just the latest – as well as the most condescending and arrogant – in a line of dreadful leftist governors who allowed labor unions to molest and ransack the Golden State.
Coming right off of the pomp and circumstance of being inaugurated California’s 40th Governor, in January 2019, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced state-funded full scope Medi-Cal healthcare to 138,000 illegal immigrant adults ages 19-26.
Newsom also reinstated the Obamacare individual mandate requiring everyone to buy health insurance or face tax fines.
He proposed a tax of $25 million on drinking water throughout the state “to help poor communities in California deal with contaminated water systems,” called the “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund.”
Before his first month in office ended, Newsom announced he was singling out the city of Huntington Beach, CA by filing a lawsuit against the city over a lack of affordable housing, despite 50 other cities also on the list not addressing the housing crisis as the state mandated. Notably, Newsom sued the Orange County city of Huntington Beach for failing to provide enough additional “affordable housing,” as his own home county of Marin enjoyed a moratorium on affordable housing building requirements until 2028.
We learned in January 2019 that the California DMV and county voter registrars told California Secretary of State Alex Padilla in 2018 that the Motor Voter program was not ready. Motor Voter automatically registers voters when they renew or obtain a drivers license. But California under Gov. Newsom, moved forward anyway. Gov. Newsom used very strong language about the DMV in his State of the State address, and appeared to have very little patience for DMV excuse-making, but nothing changed.
