Fort Bragg Resident Disapproves of Newsom Recall: ‘This is Not The Time to Create More Disruption in Our State’

Welcome to our letters to the editor/opinion section. To submit yours for consideration, please send to matthewplafever@gmail.com. Please consider including an image to be used–either a photograph of you or something applicable to the letter. However, an image is not necessary for publication.

Remember opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect that of MendoFever nor have we checked the letters for accuracy.

This recall is not a referendum on Newsom’s effectiveness.

If more than 50% of the people who bother to vote support the recall, our Governor becomes whoever got the most votes in the second question.  That could be someone who is only supported by 10% of Californians.   That is not representation.

This is not the time to create more disruption in our state.  Let’s wait until the 2022 Gubernatorial election to decide if we still want Newsom or who the majority of California voters want as their leader.

          Your vote does matter.  When you get your ballot, please vote and send it in!

  1. “the emperor has no clothes” the gav has done his incompetent level best to destroy this state.
    1) recall the french laudry bravo sierra?
    2) keeps his plump jack wine tasting open.
    3) get his daily haircuts by a local from mendo county.
    4) doesn’t wear his face diaper as prescribed yet tells the rest of his slaves otherwise.
    5) mismanaged the fuel load in the forest to give us all the “global warming fires”.
    then takes the federal $ received for forest management and spends it on illegals care and feeding.
    6) kept the state unnecessarily shut down, and will no doubt escalate the shut down prior to the recall.
    7) put numerous small business out of business. how’s downtown FB looking these days?
    8) welcomes illegal aliens (rhetorical question – anybody know there veed status?)
    into the state and gives them free healthcare and wants them to vote. maybe money he should be otherwise spending on the legal citizen taxpayers.

    net net – i can’t wait to cast my vote to kick him out. anybody but the gav.

  2. Well, if the current iteration of disruption isn’t working out, why not try another one?
    On the other hand, the field of wanna-be guvs is not particularly inspiring.
    This will likely accomplish nothing good, no matter the outcome.

    • No matter which contender wins , if one wins it will end the Newsom from screwing up any more. Presidential desires all gone, since he has done such a great job on immigration an small business, i forgot to mention the schools, as taxes totally out of control, gas prices with 2 plus dollars of tax on a gallon, 10 or 12 dollars to cross a bridge, you can go on an on, on this guys list of contributions to the people of the state of Ca. There a lot more things that the spoiled rich boy has done to us. Now its time to do him! End this crooks political migration to another cushy civil service job.

  3. This recall is indeed a referendum on Newsom’s performance as Governor. Moreover, recall is favored by a majority of Hispanics and many Democrats as well who are desperate for new leadership. To everyone with eyes to see, CA is bleeding out which means the first step is to staunch the bleeding. That is what the recall is about.

    • Rite along side Kamala, the sworn to help politicians, they buy a dozen rooms for these folks to live in, meanwhile 150 thousand wait outside in 3 different cities, close to 1/2 a million people, an they aint done diddly, the mouth goes up an down promises are made, they smile an walk off everybody claps, an these folks are still in the street! YOUR KIND SWEET POLITICIANS! Then farm the task out to somebody else! GET A GRIP

  4. Today, Nancy Pelosi calls us, the People of California, a nuisance with a recall of Gavin Newsom. She has such contempt for the people of California.
    This recall is the most important event and a turning point for the future of all Californians.
    This is a referendum on Newsom’s performance, which is abysmal. He is incompetent, divisive, authoritarian, and tyrannical.
    His policies have failed California. He has failed us. He is untrustworthy.
    He has failed to keep his oath of office.
    He has no one to blame but himself.
    It is time for a new Governor to be elected for the People of California and not for special interest groups, billionaires or millionaires.
    We need a governor to seriously enforce forest management and a governor who will put pressure on the federal government to do the same.
    We need a governor to fight to lower our taxes.
    We need a governor to fight for fewer regulations in building homes so as to reduce the cost of home building and buying.
    We need a governor for school choice.
    We need a governor to look at green energy for the not very green energy that it is (all of the rare earth minerals and lithium mining, child slave labor, the hazardous materials and waste in electric car batteries and solar panels and wind turbines built in China).
    We need a governor to look at the expense, inefficiency and destruction to the environment, habitats and animals of “green” energy.
    We need a governor to be realistic on green energy.
    We need a governor to enforce our laws.
    We need a governor to encourage investigations of waste, fraud and corruption in our state government, at all levels.
    We need a governor to hold the government accountable to the People.
    We need a governor to fight for us.
    We need a governor to preserve our freedoms.
    Our governor and all elected officials need to be reminded by our consent, our vote, they work for us.
    We have a legal process to remove a governor from office with a recall election.
    Well over two million legal voters in California, from all parties, have met the recall Newsom petition requirement.
    We, the people of California, are exercising our right to remove Gavin Newsom by a recall election citing his failures (facts) as our Governor.
    I can add to the previous list of his failures and hypocrisy:
    9) $30 billion plus in fraudulent unemployment payments (our tax payer money) paid out by EDD.
    10) $1billion contract for masks to a Chinese electric car maker BYD (which wasn’t certified at the time for N95 masks) at a higher price than 3M, an American company. Again, our tax payer money paid for this.
    11) Mismanaged the the water crisis during drought.
    12) Uncontrolled homeless population across the state.
    13) Crime in the major cities out of control.
    14) Rules for thee but not for me.

    No one has been held accountable, until now.
    Fellow Californians, by recalling Gavin Newsom we have the opportunity and power to restore reason, common sense, integrity, respect for the people of California to the office of the Governor. Perhaps trust will be built with a new Governor of, for and by the People of California.
    Vote for a Governor who recognizes he or she works for all of us, the People.

    1. Vote Yes to recall failed Governor Newsom. Watch out for the cheating. Print at home ballots, what could go wrong?
    2. vote for a gubernatorial candidate who is running for us, our interests and not running for the interests of a political party, identity politics, special interests or lobbyists. Find out who donates to the candidates, grass roots or special interests, billionaires and millionaires. Follow the money.
    Listen to what the candidates say.
    Read and research.

    Cast your vote fully informed.
    We need common sense, honesty and transparency from our governor and government. We don’t have common sense, transparency or honesty with Newsom.
    This is not about democrats, republicans or independents.
    This is about all Californians.
    This is about Our future and the generations to come in California.
    It is We the People of California, undivided, who will have the courage to save California and set a true and bright future for a truly Golden State.
    Don’t let the politicians divide and conquer us.

    Recall Newsom.
