I'm 80 years old, and I voted to keep Governor Newsom in office. I think he's done an outstanding job handling the many crises facing our state over these last couple of years. I'm happy to pay his salary any day.

Hahahahahahahahahaha, good luck with that. Unfortunately we are a one party state and 'Ol Greasy will most likely survive the recall.

The younger voters will not be able to afford to live in California if they don't eject Gavin Newsom.

Let's hope for the next generation's sake, we ALL send an earthquake-level wake up call the political elites in California that we expect competent, fiscally responsible, ethical and serious leadership, including but not limited to:

* Solve the housing crisis
* End zoning and high costs to grow
* Reverse the crime epidemic
* Make homelessness rare
* Education quality over teacher unions
* Top quality roads
* Build nuclear and other energy sources
* Forest management and bury power lines
* Slash taxes for middle class
* Stop exodus of business and startups

We can longer think in partisan terms. There are many excellent Republicans AND Democrats running to replace slick Gavin Newsom and send him back to French Laundry where he belongs.
