2021 Endorsements

Vote No on the Republican Recall

EHJC is proud to endorse a position of No on the Recall of Gavin Newsom as Governor of California.

Governor Newsom has led California to an unprecedented budget surplus and proposed a 2021 state budget that includes $2 billion for energy and water utility debt, $5.2 billion for housing debt relief, $420 million for the Transformative Climate Communities Program (TCC). California also has one of the lowest COVID infection rates and highest vaccination rates in the country.

Vote No on Hate

Despite this progress, an effort led by Trump Republicans from around the country want to take California away from us.

Trump supporters at the capital building

They are attacking Newsom for supporting sanctuary city policies to protect immigrants, allowing all voters to vote by mail, and for advancing green technologies and innovation that will make our air cleaner and communities more resilient.

Who is supporting the recall?

Of course, the Trump-supporting, anti-immigrant Republican Party, including its radical fringe groups. Orrin Heatlie, the main organizer of the effort to recall the Governor, wrote on Facebook, “Microchip all illegal aliens. It works! Just ask Animal control!

According to the LA Times, the recall is supported by, “Those included groups promoting distrust of government, science and medicine; peddlers of QAnon doomsday conspiracies; “patriots” readying for battle and one organization allied with the far-right extremist group, the Proud Boys.” These groups compare COVID-19 safety measures and wearing a mask to the holocaust and Governor Newsom to Hitler.
