The EDD scandal is just one of many reasons Gavin needs to go. Homelessness and crime on the rise, poor roads, outrageous gas prices, a failing public education system, senseless spending, a lock down that forced thousands of businesses to shut down permanently costing millions of jobs, poor fire and water management policies, the highest corporate and business tax policies in the country having resulted in businesses and individuals packing up and leaving, and for the first time in decades, creating a decrease in the state population, the hypocrisy of his do as I say, not as I do mandates, his obsession with optics and avoidance of fixing problems and a whole lot more. Vote yes on the recall and get this empty suit out of Sacramento and politics forever. He needs to go now, not in two years.

We are voting against Gavin Newsom pure and simple.

This EDD scandal deprived countless needy individuals and families of their rightful assistance benefits during the current Covid pandemic while the monetary resources went to fraudulent applicants.

Governor Newsom does not care about the people of California...only polishing his ego.

@ Tristan Rogers .... optics is his middle name. No substance is what it should be.

Finally a true story about state wide failure (I am one PA resident w kids who has been in the grips of COVID disaster!). Yet City of PA has done next to nothing for our residents in dire need of financial assistance! 25 - 50% fee reductions for kids here?? Same as it ever was. And where did the 12million dollars go that this city received from Cares Act? Not to help the needy here. Posting links to Life Moves stops there. Provide for your residents in disaster now.
