Tom Del Beccaro, former California Republican Chairman, tells us about California under Newsom. “They’re not just stealing people’s products and impacting their livelihoods, they’re stealing a sense of place and confidence,” he said. “That’s why you’ve got to get serious about it. I’m not the mayor of California. But I was a mayor. And I know when things like this happen, mayors have to step up. That’s not an indictment. That’s not a cheap shot.” “Walnut Creek police investigators are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage to attempt to identify other suspects responsible for this brazen act,” authorities said in Sunday morning news release.
- While he has spent 24 years serving in California politics in multiple roles, including lieutenant governor and mayor of San Francisco, he is also a businessperson and investor who had an abundance of wealth and resources prior to his foray into government work.
- As the defeat of Proposition 8 in blue California demonstrated, there are still plenty of moderate voters who do not share in the belief that gay marriage is inevitable in this country.
- He served as California’s lieutenant governor from 2011 to 2019 and was elected governor of the state in 2018, winning nearly 62 percent of the vote.
- To spur the construction of affordable housing, Gavin believes we must not only increase our investments in its creation, but also identify sources of new funding.
- With one tunnel, the new proposal moves less water and aims to reduce harms to the environment.
- Kendell said it was precisely because Newsom did not have a reputation as an outspoken liberal that he was able to make his decision.
Tourk had served as Newsom’s deputy chief of staff until September, when he became manager of the re-election campaign. “I want to make it clear that everything you’ve read is true and I’m deeply sorry about that. I hurt someone I care deeply about, Alex Tourk and his family and friends, and that is something I’m deeply sad about and sorry for,” he said in a brief on-camera statement. California has, in the past, used access to its markets to transform the products that are sold globally — our tight fuel economy standards became the de facto national standard, and our subsidies for electric vehicles laid a foundation for that market to boom.
Newsom’s late sister Barbara was once married to Ron Pelosi, brother-in-law of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. Paul Getty, who lived in his house during the ribery la routourne 1940s while attending St. Ignatius Catholic prep school in San Francisco. First, cities have a perverse incentive not to build housing because retail generates more lucrative sales tax revenue.
Guilfoyle, Newsom, Harris
The following candidates ran in the primary for Governor of California on June 7, 2022. Newsom was elected lieutenant governor of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. Newsom served as lieutenant governor of California from 2011 to 2019.
But his homeless initiatives were controversial, including his Care Not Cash program to cut welfare checks dramatically in exchange for housing. Homeless advocates said the preference given those recipients for housing simply meant others were booted out and that the little cash left each month for food and other necessities meant many were still on the streets every day panhandling. But coming up with big ideas and executing them is just one part of leading a city.

It’s also time to explore allowing welfare recipients to keep a greater portion of their grant aid. Gavin is troubled that California is the only state allowing mile-long drift gillnets that entangle iconic ocean marine life. He opposes trophy hunting of bears, bobcats, and endangered species, the recreational and largely unregulated killing of coyotes and foxes, and the use of super-toxic rodenticides that kill non-target wildlife. Gavin knows our state’s fish, wildlife, and habitats are facing critical threats from climate change, expanded human development, and a lack of stable state funding.

In Cox’s latest radio campaign ad, a narrator even uses “Newsomville” to describe the state’s homeless camps “springing up in every town.” Heather Knight is a columnist working out of City Hall and covering everything from politics to homelessness to family flight and the quirks of living in one of the most fascinating cities in the world. She believes in holding politicians accountable for their decisions or, often, lack thereof – and telling the stories of real people and their struggles. Even better for California, Newsom argues, would be figuring out how to pay for a single-payer health care system in which everybody would be covered by publicly funded insurance. Jennifer Friedenbach, director of the Coalition on Homelessness, said she’d be pleased if Newsom was successful in building more permanent, supportive housing around California.
He’s backed the Yimby bills to let real-estate developers control local land use. He can’t figure out what to do about high-speed rail (an absolute necessity for the state’s future in a time of climate crisis). He’s way too close to the same Sacramento lobbyists who support Republican policies. We strongly opposed his approach to attacking homeless people, which vaulted him into the Mayor’s Office. We opposed his budgets and policies, which favored the rich over everyone else.
