Governor Gavin Newsom delivered his State of the State last week at Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium. Here is the full speech. He is facing a purely political recall effort amongst the conservative elements in our state and we need to circle the wagons and make sure nothing comes of the baseless effort to remove him from office.
The address came as the state expects to near 55K Californians who’ve passed from COVID19 – nearly the same number of empty seats in the stadium. Once filled with fans, now with health care workers vaccinating Californians, it represents the partnership, innovation, and resilience that embodies the spirit of the Golden State. I know Governor Newsom hasn’t made every right decision during this crisis but he has got way more correct than he’s got wrong and Republicans are just trying to use the pandemic to unseat him. We must fight this effort back.
