Respecting the rule of law means recognizing both the California and U.S. Constitutions as constraints on what the Governor, the Legislature, or any official can do. It means restoring a proper separation of powers, where the Governor’s job is to implement laws passed by the Legislature. Churning out orders with the stroke of a pen is certainly easier than a legislative process. But our Founders made a deliberate choice that exercising the powers of government should not be easy. As the ultimate safeguard of liberty, they defined those powers as limited, distributed, checked, and balanced—precisely the opposite of California these last 15 months.
- Newsom opposes NIMBY (not-in-my-back-yard) sentiment, declaring in 2022 that “NIMBYism is destroying the state”.
- Most people in American jails have not yet been to trial, and the vast majority remain locked up merely because they can’t afford cash bail.

- As Governor, he will invest in our parks, and work with the California Conservation Corps, CalVolunteers and others to connect folks with their public spaces.
- I served in the legislature for many years and although I typically disagreed with the Democrat majority, I knew them personally and know they acted in good faith.
As Governor, he will establish a Secretary of Homelessness, helping ensure Californians facing homelessness receive the resources they need, including permanent supportive housing, as well as rapid re-housing for families.

This includes support for children’s development with expanded access to prenatal services, developmental screenings, and family nurse visits. As a father, Gavin believes that working parents should never be forced to choose between their job and their family.
How Would A Recount Work For This Election?
In partnership with small, medium, and large businesses, unions, and non-profits throughout CA. Regardless of party affiliation everyone agrees what the major problems are in California. “I’m a entertainer and small business owner born and raised in Los Angeles, Ca. I’m fed up with elites, celebrities, and career politicians who normally run for office and I wanted to see first hand what it would take for a regular person to run for office.” I will invest in widening and extending California’s roads and freeways instead of wasting money on high-speed rail.
Judge Rules That Newsom Will Not Have Party Affiliation On Ballot July
As Governor, he will invest in our parks, and work with the California Conservation Corps, CalVolunteers and others to connect folks with their public spaces. He supports the parks and water bond that the Governor and Legislature put on the ballot, which https://aix-pression.com/2011/12/expressions-de-jean-claude-convenant places appropriate emphasis on urban parks that serve underserved communities. While college may not be the right choice for every Californian, Gavin believes all Californians deserve the opportunity to secure a good paying job. As Governor, he will encourage businesses to become creators, not just consumers of talent by partnering with our community colleges and establishing 500,000 earn-and-learn apprenticeships by 2029, creating a new vocational education pipeline of high-skill workers. In an increasingly global world, apprenticeships provide the education and training necessary to prepare Californians for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
It also means insisting on policy to match the rhetoric of equity and social justice. In that regard, what is needed perhaps most of all is comprehensive education reform. A true commitment to equity would involve looking to what has worked in other states to reduce achievement gaps and propel student achievement.
Unsurprisingly, President Trump rolled back the Clean Water Rule, which would have strengthened protections from waterways that lead to the Pacific. He also opposes fracking and other unsafe oil operations and is committed to the highest standards of public transparency, public health, and public safety above all else. He believes that fracking poses potentially significant health and environmental risks that need to be studied, monitored, and tested for aggressively, and will fight efforts by the oil and gas industry to escape the reach of state and federal regulators. A new federal program that encourages investors to put their capital gains to work in distressed communities provides the chance to give places passed over by the state’s recent growth a much-needed leg up. We should align our own economic development initiatives behind the Opportunity Zones program to ensure that the public and private sectors invest together to forge a more prosperous future for all Californians. Gavin will be a fierce advocate for workers, especially low-income folks, women, and communities of color.

The opposite of Gavin Newsom’s neglectful governorship is one that is mindful of our responsibilities. That California had for years de-prioritized pandemic preparedness before 2020 is emblematic of a broader tendency towards shortsighted decision-making. The long-term consequences pile up, until they are not long-term anymore.
Did you know that adjusted for cost of living, California has the highest poverty rate in the nation? It’s like the old saying goes, “It’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep.” Californians might make good nominal incomes but don’t have much left after paying for the basics. High income taxes, gas prices and energy prices definitely tell part of that story, but nothing drives our poverty more than astronomical housing prices. I want every family in our state to afford the American Dream of homeownership.
