Return to RCDP 2021 Resolutions

Stop the Republican Recall of Governor Gavin Newsom

Whereas, the effort to recall Governor Newsom is a partisan power grab spearheaded by Donald Trump’s National Republican Party, the California Republican Party, and top Trump donors advocating to overturn fair elections, having already worked to delegitimize the American electoral process; and frivolously using California taxpayer dollars to fund this partisan ploy to derail the progress Governor Newsom has made to save lives, provide a safety net for struggling Californians as we are making significant strides returning our  lives to normal; and

 Whereas, the pro-recall ranks are filled with a coalition of anti-vaxxers, Q-Anon conspiracy theorists, and militia groups whose aim is to disrupt and distract from California’s progress on COVID-19 recovery, mass vaccinations, and school reopenings while their leaders disseminate anti-vaccination and anti-immigration propaganda on social media sites, actively working against public interest and advocating for the microchipping of immigrants, and

 Whereas,  by uniting,  Democrats will prevent Trump’s Republican Party from taking over the California government, will condemn and stand united against any so-called Democrat who considers filing papers to run, thereby helping Republicans succeed.

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the Riverside County Democratic Party opposes the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.

Passed by Riverside County Democratic Party 3/29/2021
