Resolution to Oppose the Recall of Governor Gavin Newsom and 
Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks

WHEREAS, Governor Gavin Newsom and Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks are currently facing recall efforts, largely due to their support of health directives intended to mitigate the spread of COVID-19;

 

WHEREAS, these recall elections cost taxpayers millions of dollars;

 

WHEREAS, it is unconscionable to use funds for these recall efforts, particularly as the State of California recovers from the health and economic crisis brought on by the year-long pandemic and with Supervisor Parks terming out in 2022;

 

WHEREAS, recall attempts such as these are part of a political strategy that voids the will of the voters by attempting to gain local and statewide governmental offices for politicians who are unable to win in the regular election cycle;

 

WHEREAS, recall attempts such as these contradict purported Republican party values of fiscal responsibility and the power of the electorate; 

 

WHEREAS, the Ventura County Democratic Central Committee opposes the recalls of Supervisor Parks and Governor Newsom; 

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Democratic Club of the Conejo Valley opposes the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom and Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks;

 

FURTHERMORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Democratic Club of the Conejo Valley will publicly oppose these recalls and undertake widespread communication of this opposition.
