Time for change

“Time for change,” Monterey Herald – October 16, 2022

A quick riff on a popular saying: the definition of insanity is the re-election of politicians whose time in office has been an abject failure.

Under Governor Newsom we have the highest gas prices and income taxes in the nation, constant water and power shortages, rampant wildfires, homelessness and tent cities, shoplifters galore and we are still paying for the train to nowhere.

Governor Newsom has a vision of utopia but is unable to solve even our most basic problems. Yet, it appears he, and most state legislators, will be re-elected by a landslide. For the first time in the history of California, more people are moving out of our state than moving in.

Is anyone paying attention?
