Career classroom teacher and current Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva and a large group of community leaders today called on Orange County voters to reject a politically motivated recall of Governor Gavin Newsom. Quirk-Silva and the group pointed to the hidden motivations of initiative funders and the dangerous beliefs of the unqualified replacement candidates trying to replace Newsom as governor.
“Like the attempted January 6th overthrow of our national government, extreme elements are trying to grab power outside the normal course of our elections,” said Quirk-Silva. “These insurrectionists are preying on people’s frustrations with the pandemic, pointing the finger at the governor, and telling a bald faced lie that firing him will make things better.
“We can’t let the Big Liars continue to spread their lies unchallenged,” continued Quirk-Silva. “We must vote “No” on this recall. The candidates to replace him, who include people with histories of domestic violence, are dangerous. They have all said they would relax COVID protections.
“Going backwards on the pandemic is idiotic and dangerous. Republican states pursuing the same policies are being crushed by COVID again.
“Voters either have received, or will shortly, their absentee ballots. We implore you to fill out a “NO” on the recall question and mail back your ballot right away.”
