Employment Development Dept. has sent over $ 30 $$Billion in fraudulent checks to prison inmates and criminals, with no accountability/answers and at taxpayer's expense.

Crime is spiking in California, yet Gavin Newsom ordered the early release of 20 thousand prison inmates. With the passage of Proposition 47 - which downgrades theft/robberies
to under $ 950.00, now resulting in skyrocketing break ins, store thefts and closures in Oakland/San Francisco. This doesn't even address his "sanctuary city" policies and how many illegal migrants are being "relocated" in California.
As mayor of San Francisco from 2004-2011, homelessness was a problem and it has only exploded during Newsom's governorship and he now wants to spend another $ 12 billion on new homeless programs. California now leads the nation in homeless residents, with free housing, meals and needles.

Due to high taxes and fees, Californians pay over $ 1.20 more than the national average for a gallon of gas, but Gavin Newsom refused to stop or delay another gas tax increase effective, July 1, 2021. California is already one of the highest tax states in the USA.

In 2008, the California voters approved a bond measure approving a 171 mile bullet train from Merced to Bakersfield, at an estimated cost of $ 45 billion. The estimated cost is now at $ 100 billion, with the California bullet train authority seeking another $ 4.1 billion from the federal government.

There has been no new completed water storage facility built in California since 1980, with the New Melones Dam. Water rationing isn't the viable long term answer with California's estimated population of 40 million residents, with a water system designed for 19 million residents.

Newsom has an ownership interest in companies that financially benefitted from the Paycheck Protection Program, one of which received nearly $ 1,000,000 to protect 14 jobs.

Neighbors, please read the facts as this isn't a "blue" and "red" issues, but "Red, White & Blue"

Hopefully we're all angry enough to vote him out. Enough is enough. This is a competency issue, and anyone incompetent should lose their job -- including elected politicians. Californians have suffered enough.

Incompetent Democrats appear to rule the roost these days. Biden, Cuomo, Newsom, oh my!
