State law requires the notice of intent to circulate a recall petition be published in a newspaper of general circulation. Our notice appeared in the Daily Recorder on Friday, August 9th. A copy of the published notice appears below.
Here is the text of the notice of intention:
NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE RECALL PETITION
TO THE HONORABLE GAVIN NEWSOM: Pursuant to Section 11020, California Elections Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of GOVERNOR in the State of California, and to demand election of a successor in that office.
The grounds for the recall are as follows:
Governor Gavin Newsom has violated the trust of California residents in four major areas:
Health care for illegal aliens. He seeks to make California taxpayers pay for the health care of criminal lawbreakers who entered our nation illegally at a starting cost of over $100 million. This policy will serve as a magnet to attract thousands more illegal immigrants to California which will lead to skyrocketing costs and additional burdens on physicians and hospitals.
Tax increases. Despite a massive budget surplus of $21 billion, he proposes more than $2 billion in additional taxes on the people of California, including a water tax. California already has the highest taxes in the nation which are driving away our best residents and businesses.
Homelessness. He has allowed our major cities to be overrun by homelessness, creating a threat to public health and hygiene and leading to Third World-like conditions and diseases in places like Los Angeles and San Francisco
Sanctuary State & Cities. He has violated and subverted federal immigration law by encouraging “Sanctuary State” and city policies that shield criminal illegal aliens from law enforcement and immigration authorities, including vicious and brutal MS-13 gang members.
The notice also included the names and addresses of Recall Newsom proponents.
We will be filing our petitions for approval with the Secretary of State this week. We’re anticipating delays from the Secretary of State, and expect to have approved petitions in about two weeks.
