Culver City Democratic Club Opposes Recall Of Governor Gavin Newsom
August 26, 2021
At the August meeting the Culver City Democratic Club adopted a resolution strongly supporting a "No" vote on the September 14th Special Election to Recall Governor Gavin Newsom.
We see the recall effort as a partisan Republican power grab spearheaded by Donald Trump's Republican Party. The Republican Party has worked to delegitimize the American electoral process. The recall election is a frivolous use of taxpayer dollars to fund a partisan effort to derail the progress Governor Newsom has made to save lives and provide a safety net for struggling Californians.
The wording of the Resolution is as follows:
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 Culver City Democratic Club opposes the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom. Resolution adopted at the general meeting of the Culver City Democratic Club on August 11, 2021.
