have ally in Newsom
I am a community college student that has adapted online learning since March 2020. I strongly oppose this recall election because Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed the most recent budget that benefits California community college students by allotting $100 million for student housing and food insecurity. Newsom has supported and enacted policies that benefit the most vulnerable groups in California, including low-income students like myself.
This recall is a blatant attack on the civil rights, liberties, and policies that are supported by the vast majority of Californians. My future and the futures of other young people in the state are dependent on preventing California from going backward. To protect the future we’re working toward, please vote no in this recall.
Realism would lead
to no vote on recall
No matter what your opinion is of Gov. Gavin Newsom, please stop and think carefully before you vote yes on the recall.
Our state is obviously in serious trouble brought on by forces of nature — not politics: wildfires, drought, water scarcity, the delta variant. One can’t seriously think that a far-right libertarian talk show host, the likely winner if there is a recall, would have the experience, skill and enough concern for his fellow Californians to work cooperatively with Democrats to find solutions to our problems.
Please be realistic.
