The following page contains a statement from the Governor. Under Election Code 11327, only an officer whose recall is being sought may file a statement with the local elections official to be included in the county Voter Information Guide.

This page does not contain statements for replacement candidates. However, a complete list of candidates appears on the Sample Ballot. Every household will be mailed a Voter Information Guide from the Secretary of State that will include statements from the candidates who file one.

Gavin Newsom

The past year and a half has challenged us all. But Californians met the moment.

Our state followed science and moved aggressively to save lives and help those hardest hit.

Thanks to your collective efforts, California is beating the pandemic.

Californians have some of the best vaccination levels in the country – leaving us better protected against variants than most other states.

Now, California is making a comeback.

I believe California must use this once in a lifetime moment to come together and ensure every resident – regardless of their race or zip code – can benefit from our recovery.

That’s why I launched the $100 billion California Comeback Plan – the biggest economic recovery package in state history.

Two in three Californian families are receiving at least $600 in direct relief, and 200,000 small businesses will benefit from our relief programs.

We are investing in solutions for our most pressing challenges – homelessness, education, infrastructure and wildfires.

But all of your sacrifice and our state’s progress could be put at risk if this recall succeeds.

I ask you to vote No on the recall so we can get back to what matters – our recovery and solving our state’s biggest challenges.

Governor Newsom
