The judge cited statistics that show about one and four inmates in Oregon prisons have tested positive for the virus. Governor Brown says the state will not appeal the

"Just phony covert 19 plan. Damn it, not pandemic plant on it. Is, in my opinion, a ruthless agenda to destroy all the small businesses, Mr Lawson, and you don't have to take my word for culture. When he's town City in America, you see scores of boarded up restaurants. Small businesses. And why is that they were killed off not by the coronavirus. They were killed off from these ruthless laws, covert 19 laws enacted by our overzealous legislators. Am I have a suggestion? Hold up a second hold. Can I mend one thing, you said in most cases, it's not legislatures because in that case and and the only reason I make that distinction, for example, California Where your side said that there are a number of sheriffs who've said We're not enforcing Gavin Newsom's executive order. It wasn't the Legislature that did it because everybody in the Legislature who wants to keep his or her seat in the Legislature is going to vote on these things thinking when I go back to my community, and I say to them, I voted for that. And they say, and you killed our businesses. That person is likely to lose their seat in the state house. Whatever state they happen to be in, which is, I think why most of the Democrat governors who have done this kind of nonsense the states that are shut down to pretty much the West Coast states, New York and a few others most of America's open right now. But if do you think that if Gavin Newsom had gone to Sacramento and said to the state Legislature, I want you to pass all these tight restrictions, and I want you to give me the authority to shut things down anytime I want. Do you think those state lawmakers even if they have a D in front of their name for Democrats? Do you think they would have said Sure I'd be glad to vote for that and then go back to my constituents. I think they're happy to let the governor do it. They don't have to take responsibility for it. And that means when their constituents complain about it, they say, Well, I didn't do it. The governor did it. So if this had been the action of legislatures, there's there's a natural cause and effect. You vote for a stupid law. Your constituents vote you out of office. Which is why most of these governors like Newsome, like Governor Brown of Oregon, like Governor Inslee of Washington State have chosen not to take it to their state Legislature because they're doing two things one. They're acting in a way that the people have no control until the next election, and Jay Inslee just went through one. Gavin Newsom has one coming up in a couple of years. But there's there's no quick fix to that. That's number one and number two. They're providing cover for their Democrat friends in the State House by saying, I'm gonna lay all these rules down and they can't blame you for doing it, even though that's exactly what should be happening. If you decide that you should shut down every restaurant in the state the way Andrew Cuomo did in New York State. On. You Don't make your Democrat friends in the state and the state assembly up in Albany do it, then they don't have to explain to their constituents why it was done. So I think you're right about that. You just have to be be precise about who's doing what these air, not laws. In most cases, in most cases, they are the executive actions of governors. And I think, in most cases they violate that states Constitution. I just like to finish up by saying that All these saying any any city in the United States. That's like Portland, Oregon, where you show comes from, Let's say this 300 small restaurants this hypothetically say that they've been persecuted by all of these laws. I can't survive their livelihood destroyed. They need to band together. Get a lawyer who take the pro bono would say. Look, we're not going to pay our taxes have a massive taxable. I believe, Mr Lawson, I want your take on it. Do you think that a massive tax revolt across America would get government off their backs, and he's up this persecution or not, well their problems. In fact, somebody was suggested to me earlier today by email. They said, Why don't we all stop paying our taxes? The problem and let me tell you one of the practical sides to that if you stop paying your income taxes in California In most cases, worker's income taxes are extracted through what's called withholding. That is you pay a little bit out of every paycheck. So at the end of the year, you're in the vicinity of what you owe. So if you Whoa, you know, some say $6000 in taxes every year on your income that they take $500 a month out of your paycheck, And at the end of the year, you may be a little bit to the plus side a little bit to the minus side, but you've already paid. So how do you go in and back that out? You you Congar to your employer and say I'm gonna take a massive number of exemptions as many as I can legally get away with, And even even then they're still going to take money out of your paycheck and you will owe the money later on. People might be encouraged to do that, but it would literally take getting millions of people to do that on property taxes. That's a different matter because you and I both know that most of the people who are running these small businesses like restaurants, they're not in space that they own their It's in space that they rent. So you would have to get the owners of the buildings to say We're going to refuse to pay our property taxes and then pass the savings on in some way to the restaurant to keep them around because the restaurant tour who has a leased space, which I think is the vast majority of them. He ain't paying the taxes anyway. It's being paid by his landlord. He's paying rent, and and so I don't know how you get enough of those building owners to say we're going to short now I will tell you one thing. A number of years ago, I knew a guy who owned a chain of hotels, small hotels in the West Coast and in the western United States, and he got very angry at one county. He was in because he had fulfilled all the requirements to build the project, and he already owned hotels in the county and the county said No and and they they did it because they didn't like his politics. They decided just to string him along and jerk him around. So you know what he did. He took the property taxes on the hotels he owned. And he said, I'm not gonna pay them right now. Now, in most states, the rules differ from state to state. But in many states, you can simply say, I'm not going to pay the property taxes this year, and you can often get away with it for two or three years. And while you've so say you owed $100,000 in property taxes in a smaller county on 100 Grand's a lot of money, tol of sudden disappear. So the county is expecting you get 100 grand in 2020, and they don't get the check. They say, Where's the check? And you say, I'm not going to pay it for three years, so they're looking at three years, $300,000. At the end of that you'll end up paying the money anyway. At some point, or they'll seize the property. But in most most states, you don't have to pay for a period of time without any consequence. Like the county, seizing your property, Believe me, he got their attention the first year. They didn't get the check. I forget what the amount was. But you might have even been a couple of $100,000. And he knew that he'd pay a small fee, a penalty and a little bit of interest on the money. But frankly, I think he parked the money in an account to earn interest on it, so he didn't have to worry. About what they were going to do to him because he just took the money instead. It aside to pay it later. Imagine being a county that's expecting several $100,000 from you, and they don't get the check and the next year they don't get the check. And the third year they don't get the check..
Oregon Governor Kate Brown on COVID-19 Surge and New Restrictions
"In oregon like so many states across the us. kobe. Hospitalizations are now at record levels on sunday alone. Health officials reported more than eight hundred new cases of covid nineteen just two days earlier. Oregon governor kate brown announced new restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of the disease hearkening back to the early days of the pandemic starting today. There will be a two week freeze in oregon limiting restaurants and bars to take out only enclosing gyms museums and other places of indoor and outdoor recreation already. The new restrictions are being met with backlash some business owners especially in the restaurant industry and some elected officials have criticized the decision with some worried about what it will mean for their businesses survival. So what do the new restrictions mean for the state to answer that and more we went right to the source. My name is kate. Brown governor oregon. Here's what governor brown told me about. Why the two week freeze was necessary. Hospitalizations are rising sharply in oregon. And in fact our metro area hospitals are being stretched to capacity and some have voluntarily began to stop surgeries to preserve beds and staff capacity. These measures are necessary to give oregon a fighting chance to stop covid. Nineteen cases governor. Are you also concerned about the potential shortages for medical personnel from other parts of the country. Given that so much of the country is now battling a covid. Nineteen much more than it was in the beginning of the pandemic absolutely my top priority is governor is to save lives and keep oregonians healthy. We use science and data here To make decisions that is you know. we're surrounded by hot spots from idaho To washington to california each one of us can make a difference. We're truly all in this together and we all have to take action To keep ourselves healthy families healthy and our communities healthy governor you mentioned the state of california and washington you also recently signed a new coronavirus travel advisory in conjunction with those two states and those two governors. What's the hope. They're our hope is that we will send a very clear message to folks living on the west coast. We want you to travel. But we you to do it safely and we ask you to quarantine for two weeks both prior to your departure and upon your return the virus obviously spreads very readily from person to person and it's critically important That we protect our vulnerable populations are elderly are folks with underlying health conditions and Appreciate the willingness of my fellow governors on the west coast take immediate action They're also limits that you've put on private social gatherings limiting those two six people but governor with those private gathering limitations and the travel advisory restrictions. How are you expecting to enforce those particularly as we head into the first of a couple of holidays namely thanksgiving. I've directed the oregon state police to work with local law enforcement to enforce gathering limits. But it's much in the same way as local officers respond to noise complaints for loud parties for example and issue citations. I'm not expecting law enforcement to be going door to door. But certainly in cases where there's a flagrant violation people should and will be cited. What's the threshold you're looking for. In terms of determining whether further restrictions will be needed. Look i've said all along. I'm not going to be the party police. This is really up to individuals to take responsibility for their actions. What we know. is that informal. Social gatherings are super spreader events. So i've asked oregonians to limit their social gatherings keep it to own household and no more than six people and no more than two households. I know this is really really hard. We all want to spend thanksgiving with our families. I have to tell you we have great family events Friends family fabulous food. We play games. But i would rather celebrate in a very small group. This thanksgiving and then have a fabulous festivity next thanksgiving and see all of my family members. Lived through this pandemic
Gov. Brown adds four more counties to 'Two-Week Pause' over COVID-19 spread
"Counties have been ordered by Governor Brown to take a two week pause to stop the spread of Cove in 19 4. More counties Baker Union, Clackamas and Washington were added to the list today. I want to clarify that this pause does not change. Change any of the current rules for faith based gatherings. At this time, Governor Brown says Oregonians need to work from home one possible limit social gatherings and restaurants, bars and Jim's must restrict capacity to 50 people, including staff during the pause, new
Oregon says federal agents to pull back from Portland
"A standoff between the Trump administration and local officials could be nearing an end. Governor Kate Brown announced today that the federal government will pull back law enforcement who have clashed violently with demonstrators there since early July. We'll hear from Governor Brown in another part of the program. The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, is presenting the deal a little differently. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Dirk Vander Hart joins me now from Portland. Welcome. Hey, thanks. So this agreement could help bring down tensions that have been mounting for weeks in your city. How is the governor even framing the deal at this moment? Yeah, She is really presenting this as a big win at this point. So for weeks, Governor Brown and other state officials have repeatedly demanded that the Trump Administration pullback federal officers But as you said, were sent here in early July, and under the deal announced today, Brown says At least some of those officers will begin to be phased out starting tomorrow in their place. She's sending Oregon State troopers who will act as security for this courthouse, which has really been a focal point of the protests. In her statement today, Brown said, the federal government essentially said the government has conceded to her demands. Okay, well, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has also been talking about this deal. Would you say that he agrees with Brown's characterization of it? Pretty pretty clearly not a wolf and other federal officials today have presented this as a win for their side, So their side is that they've been calling for local officials to protect the federal courthouse from vandalism or are small fires that some demonstrators have sent. And they suggest that you know those demands have been met because state troopers will be coming in to give that protection. But Wolf is also really downplaying this notion that federal officers are actually leaving the city like Brown says. Here's what he said in a press conference today. Our entire law enforcement presence that is currently in Portland yesterday in pre in the previous week, will remain importantly. Until we are assured that the courthouse And other federal facilities will no longer be attacked nightly. Instead of fire. There is obviously a little discord there in these two versions, and we're still looking for more details until what's behind them. I think what's likely impossible is that D H s officers will remain nearby may be in the area but will not actively be at the courthouse every night like they are now. We should note, though, that federal authorities who are normally assigned to protect the courthouse will still be present. Okay, so if the presence of federal officers does diminish how likely is that going to calm down the protesters? You think Well, I think state officials are certainly hoping it's very likely. These federal officers have drawn so much outrage. In recent weeks. People have been very, very focused on getting them out of the city. And so you know the senses. This should help calm things. I don't know that we can assume he's going to solve everything here. I mean, the question will be how state troopers actually respond to demonstrators gift things flare up again. Well, I mean, the country has been pretty focused on Portland recently, mainly because the president sent these federal law enforcement officials there in early July. But protests have been going on for a lot longer than that, for you know where you are. You just bring us up to speed on how things in Portland even got to this point. Well, that's right. Yeah, Actually, we are about two months into nightly protests for racial justice related to the killing of George Floyd. I mean, those have come in waves. So in late May, shortly after Floyd was killed, thousands of people were in the streets every night. That began toe Wayne by late June, when maybe around 100 people a night. We're coming out and clashing with police. But as I said, the federal presence here has really, really energized things. Dads and moms and vets air coming out. Today's deal is going to change things. I think we can say that we're just not exactly sure how
Mayors Threatens to Sue If Trump Sends Fed Officers to Patrol NYC, Chicago
"Of Chicago and New York of threatened to take President Donald Trump to court if he sends government agents to police cities, trump sent federal law enforcement officers to Portland and weeks of anti-racism protests there and he's also threatened to do the same in many other cities across the nation, the move to send agents in camouflage. Camouflage uniforms has been criticized by officials in Oregon, and also by the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Well, joining me for more on this is Scott Lucas professor of politics at the University of Birmingham Scott was good. Have you on the show now? There's a couple of things I'd like to understand here for example when these these forces were sent to Portland in Oregon. Are they working with police on the ground or they just flown in an trying to take control of the streets. How does it work when you send these offices in? In normal cases, the way that it should work is that the intervention is coordinated. With local authorities with his the political leaders, and with the leaders of security forces, including the police. That's the way it was done. The last time there was a national emergency amidst and uprising, which was in Los Angeles in Nineteen ninety-two after the beating of Rodney, King. This time is not known. Donald Trump and his inner circle, including Attorney General, William Bar and Chad. Wolf of Homeland Security. Sent in these forces, many of whom are not in March uniforms. Who are in unmarked vehicles symptomen without consultation with the Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler without consultation with Oregon Governor Brown without consultation full consultation with the heads of police there in other words, this is close to being an occupying force brought in from Washington not to restore law and order as much as it is to try to quash these protests in pursuit of other goals and I would say the primary goal is the election of Donald Trump I. want to give out not because. I guess he's you say he's not playing to. The audience in the city is playing to. A national audience and he seems to be trying to get across his notion that. The Republicans and himself a good at standing up to questions and issues around law and order, whereas the Democrat is being held hostage by demonstrators on the streets and are unable to do anything to to to quell. Disturbances. Windows being smashed on stores, rare occurrences, but these are the things that he's focusing on. Your I mean this is not an entirely new playbook. In the nineteen fifties. You would say that your opponent supported the communist in the era of McCarthyism. Richard Nixon was very effective in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies before Watergate at playing at the idea that protests were directed by extremist in by Anti American. Elements Russ he represented the silent majority. But if this is done entirely new playbook, this is definitely a new chapter. Because the extent to which Donald Trump has said that he does not recognize any check on his authority He said back in April Dirt Win Corona Virus, researching I want to take total control. He in the past week has consulted John you a lawyer. Most renowned for writing the torture memo in the George W Bush administration about ruling by decree in other words. This is not. Not An attempt to work through courts, not to work through Congress, it is to bypass every institution and to do it with this false. This false sense that the protests are dominated by violence by extremist, an anarchist when in five from the very start the black lives matter protests after the murder George Floyd have been largely peaceful, and that has been the case in Portland as well. A CRAWLER! This is in many cities are the police are being much more cautious about how they get involved with citizens on the streets, or they are deliberately trying to hold back from demonstrators fulfil of causing issues, but in the background, not from demonstrators in the background this the has in some cities like New York seen an uptick in in for example in violent crime and gun crime, so does he have a point? Point that you know there there is a there is a maybe in some cities. A crime wave is a is a bit of an emotive word. Maybe an uptick in crime. The actually someone might build to buy. It doesn't quite know how to deal with for example in New York. No, I mean we have had an increase in in shootings in places like Chicago. Atlanta and New York but you have quote upticks. As parts of regular patterns of crying growing up in this case amidst corona virus admits the tension which has been stoked by trump. It's not surprising that you might have an increase interest, but this is not due to the withdrawal of the police from the streets. There's absolutely no linked to that. The police were on the streets of New York there on the streets of Chicago streets of Atlanta, the issue that is there and has been raised by black lives matters. How do you have effective policing effective policing does mean trying to prevent shootings trying to crime, but it also means trying. Trying to do so working with the community responsibly, and not with the police acting violently, and that issue is being handled by not by trump a by state, local leaders in places like Minneapolis and places like Seattle and places like Atlanta they are trying to pursue a new type of policing that can actually deal with this with the long term, and not for the purpose of a soundbite with Donald trump screams, law and order even as he's trying to undermine it.

"Also starting to tick up slowly this is really about prevention and slowing the growth of cases while that still feasible governor brown said it was a hard decision for her because the largest city in the state Portland was on the brink every opening top all of the business owners who had planned to re open this weekend I want to acknowledge how difficult this is for all of you however is Dr Fauci has said we don't make the time line the virus makes the time line the virus makes the time line that's in Oregon in the in Arizona will governor Doug Ducey seems to be saying not how we make the time line that's right governor Ducey said they expected to see a spike in cases during this time period and we're definitely seeing that the average daily case count has nearly quadrupled since the end of may is still do see is saying that hospitals have enough beds to handle it even as the state's largest hospital system has warned they're running low on ICU beds so while many national experts are sounding the alarm about Arizona's outbreak Ducey's really trying to counter that narrative that the state is on the verge of a crisis or that he lifted the stay home order too quickly here he is at his most recent press conference this is always been about saving lives and it's also about livelihoods in the state of Arizona we put the stay at home order there so we could prepare for what we are going through right now and we are prepared for it the governor's really focused on this idea of hospital capacity that there's plenty of room to deal with the surge and basically people have to accept that this virus will keep spreading in the community and they have to adapt but continue to live their lives a medically is that why cases the number of cases is going up so dramatically in Arizona yeah it seems like Arizona could be a cautionary tale about a re opening if you look at the data it's clear that new cases and covert hospitalizations those started picking up after the governor's lockdown order was lifted in mid may now there was more testing being done but experts say that still does not explain the spike right now because the rate of positive cases has also gone up the state is reporting about an eight percent of tests are coming back positive at some national Kobe tracking projects put that much higher above fifteen percent and that compares to about three and a half percent in Oregon I spoke to saw skip a pesky you she's an epidemiologist based in Phoenix she says it's not only that Arizona may have opened prematurely but also how we went

in the state Portland was on the brink every opening top all of the business owners who had planned to re open this weekend I want to acknowledge how difficult this is for all of you however is Dr Fauci has said we don't make the time line the virus makes the time line the virus makes the time line that's in Oregon in the in Arizona will governor Doug Ducey seems to be saying that we make the time line that's right governor Ducey said they expected to see a spike in cases during this time period and we're definitely seeing that the average daily case count has nearly quadrupled since the end of may is still do see is saying that hospitals have enough beds to handle it even as the state's largest hospital system has warned they're running low on ICU beds so while many national experts are sounding the alarm about Arizona's outbreak Ducey's really trying to counter that narrative that the state is on the verge of a crisis or that he lifted the stay home order too quickly here he is at his most recent press conference this is always been about saving lives and it's also about livelihoods in the state of Arizona we put the stay at home order there so we could prepare for what we are going through right now and we are prepared for it the governor's really focused on this idea of hospital capacity that there's plenty of room to deal with the surge and basically people have to accept that this virus will keep spreading in the community and they have to adapt but continue to live their lives a medically is that why cases the number of cases is going up so dramatically in Arizona yeah it seems like Arizona could be a cautionary tale about a re opening if you look at the data it's clear that new cases and covert hospitalizations those started picking up after the governor's lockdown order was lifted in mid may now there was more testing being done but experts say that still does not explain the spike right now because the rate of positive cases has also gone

Trump administration opens up drilling on federal land in California
"The trump administration is lifting a five year ban on hydraulic fracking and oil drilling on more than a million acres of federal land across central California in Fresno current Santa Barbara and Bakersfield counties one parcel is near your somebody another near the subway and national park on fire mentalist are outraged and so is California Attorney General have your but Serra who says he'll fight it here to talk about this is terminal he's professor of environmental analysis at Pomona College welcome back to press play thank you madam well tell us about this land and why the administration is doing this well there's a couple of things that play first of all this talk about fracking as a technology which admittedly opens up wells that in many cases seem to have been played out and so industry loves this new technology is actually an old technology but the new application of it that has done remarkable work for them in pulling oil out of the ground and gas out of the ground that they didn't think they could manage so that's the tech side the politics of this or even more interesting because again this is California because this is a top administrative play no one can avoid the fact that this is in direct response to governor Newsome's argument that fracking would be under scientific review in the state of California and here's the federal government sort of suggesting that its power overseas over overwhelms out of this date so in the end we're gonna see a lot of lawsuits lawsuits based on states rights yeah you know the irony of course is not missed on anyone that this is a states rights argument at one level but it's also a question about the rulings in twenty fourteen that set aside L. B. L. lambs decision original decision to approve fracking up along the central coast and elsewhere the BLM now says it has complied with a court order but that calm whether it fully complied is probably going to be the technical part of the lawsuit but the other will be but Serra as he has been doing repeatedly sense twenty seventeen is going to suit to challenge this and basically to bog down any federal action in the state of California okay so does that mean nothing's going to happen until these lawsuits go forward well I think that's what it means because that's what it is meant in other instances in different ways so you know whether it's ninety circuit will hear this I don't know but I assume that's were the suits will go to and you know that's been tends to be sympathetic to the arguments that California has been making about the environment over the years and actually other states under its jurisdiction so my guess is this is going to end in court my guess is that by keeping it in court this becomes a way by which to slow the process down certainly until twenty twenty elections and if the White House is flipped then I think California among other places will breathe a sigh of relief but in general this is federal land feds have the ability to do whatever they want with it even if it is an **** state yeah that's that's sort of sticking point because the bureau of land management since and leave early nineteenth century has had control of all mineral rights under federal property everywhere and this is federal property your but the state of California and last month attack governor Newsome said the moratorium on fracking will review all permits in the state and that includes federal lands so it's not clear to me that legal jurisdiction or the legal legitimacy if that claim but I think that will also be adjudicated in the courts general though pre governor knew some governor brown was pretty open to allowing fracking in California right he was and that that drove drove many of us crazy because the the sort of green perspective that he loaded and and frankly did a lot of good a lot of good issues seem to be in conflict and his argument was that oil and gas have been crucial to California's economy we want to continue that process even though and the other hand we're talking about trying to become more carbon free and I think that in the end is going to be one of the central issues in the public debate which is the same moment in which cop twenty five is meeting in Barcelona and the United States is fundamentally absent from that global conversation about how to move towards a carbon free economy the trump administration is demonstrating once again is that it is most interested in being retrogressive and that it perceives that oil and gas of the way to go and the world be damned but then you have localities localities which are hurting financially like sure Kern county in the board of supervisors there unanimous unanimously approved a measure to bring the oil industry and to present their plans so you've got the on a local level you've got some lawmakers really wanting this to happen yeah you do and I fully appreciate their their desires to make that work it we've seen this in the past and walking areas for example in the nineteen eighties and nineteen nineties when clear cutting was cut back literally and logging town suffered enormously as a consequence of part of what I think any good state policy and frankly fed policy needs to do is to think very seriously about the economic impact on localities on the one hand that against the broader interests in this case carbon free economy in a climate change the world and and do some serious thinking about this you know in the early nineteen twenties to Justin name a person Gifford Pinchot who had been the first head of the four service wrote quite poignantly about the logging towns in Pennsylvania that had turned out empty because all of the winter but the four deforested and he was very concerned about those kind of economic ramifications and and we need to take that seriously I guess that's the larger point is we've got to take it seriously and there has to be a way by which to negotiate this process wholesale opening up public lands to fracking is not that policy it is a kind of political pay back that I think will not work to the president's advantage thanks for coming on today my great pleasure thank metal term Miller professor of environmental analysis at Pomona

And he very quickly said no more national guard troops at the border.

"Centers again, are you aware of the safe surrender baby law Aldo why that's the news now. Just before I get to this whole thing of the Intel committee. Basically, saying, Nope. There's nothing going on in the way of any collusion between the Russians and the campaign to elect President Trump back in two thousand sixteen. There are maybe four or five ways yesterday that Gavin Newsom made it sort of clear to some people that he's not government be. He's not Jerry Brown. Emme had to do that. You know, if he wants to be his own man, if he wants to be the president in the future. There are a lot of people even me to a degree the thought he was going to be Jerry Brown clone. And I think in many aspects he will be I mean, he's pretty much blown up high speed rail. We think he's blowed up the twin tunnels we we know that was going to happen. But you know, just about a month after being inaugurated, he used the state of the state address to make probably his strongest showing yet. That Jerry Brown is no longer in charge. Thank god. You know, the proposed scaling back to the big ones that governor Brown had really pushed for so long high speed rail and the pair of titles to move water from north or south. That's an indicator that he's not gonna be beating the Jerry Brown drum for too long. He rescinded the Brown. Deployment of the national guard troops to the Mexican border something that you would I probably still need to talk about. He Voest voiced support for education and housing policies that Brown stayed away from now that's something. That's not been given a lot of airtime. It probably we'd we'd probably need to go through that. But you know, all leaders, honestly, what a distinguish themselves as their own persons. So it's no shock that Newsome is carving out his own bath. California's last several governors took office vowing to write all of the perceived wrongs and eat off their predecessors and Brown himself in his first term was a big change agent. Duh. It certainly wasn't for the, you know, the better of the state. But there there are Democrats replacing Republicans and sometimes it's vice versa. Newsom is the first democrat to follow a democrat into the California governor's office it more than a century. Are you aware of that? Yeah. Not many people are hip to that. And we got elected I had to do a little homework because I thought maybe this was cut a precedent setting. And lo and behold, he's the first democrat to follow a democrat the governor's office in more than a century. So that lets you know that there's a bit of a trend going on in California. A trend. Humane a trend. You may not like. And you know. You also have to follow to the friendship between the Newsome and the Brown family goes back generations. They just didn't, you know, pick each other out as governor Lieutenant governor on a web for political reasons. No, these two families had blood they've been with each other for a long long time. So you know, that that creates a challenge and other governors have not faced Newsom has to pay homage to the legacy of his predecessor. But he also has to establish his own vision. You know? I mean, he's not not gonna junk everything that Jerry Brown did. Because again that families have been friends for generations. So it's not an easy needle to thread. If I can use that term as evidenced by newsome's response when asked if he's breaking away from Brown scores, quote, you know, we're building a lot of the work. That's been done. We're just being more sober about it more deliberative about it more focused more transparent. Whatever that means. This early stage of his governorship. There are probably four or five key ways that maybe ease differentiating himself, you know, defining himself border patrol would be one of them. Okay. Early last year, the president asked the border state governors to beef up their national guard troops along the border Brown responded by saying the California troops would not would not enforce immigration laws. You remember that whole? Sort of redefine what they'd be doing to make it short. You know, he was going to go along with it. But it was going to be his rules. So he agreed to add the four hundred troops saying that they would focus on combating transnational crime that was the buzzword transnational crime. So Newsom he rolls back the orders last week browser orders, and he reassigned most of the troops from the border areas to the threatened the areas threatened by wildfires. It also where illegal marijuana gross. And those were meeting of the border is going to be focusing on stopping criminal smuggling drugs and guns through existing border checkpoints. He says that's where the problem lies everything else. Remember is a manufactured crisis to which all of us out here. The show would say bull. Yeah. And he says that's our answer to the White House Noboru division, Nomorza phobia. Nordenham high speed rail. A don't even look go need to go into that. Do I I mean since his first governor Brown back in the seventies has advocated. High speed rail connection to California to connect the north of the south. He even took steps more recently to the project by the Goshi aiding more funding for it. But he couldn't get it. Newsom yesterday said he's got nothing, but respect for governor Brown's plans and governor Schwarzenegger's ambitious vision, remember Schwarzenegger one or two, but he derided the current plan, you know, for the trade from San Francisco to Los Angeles saying it's taking too long, and it's costing too much money, which is exactly what he said this year and a half ago. Would he say if he were governor he would dump the thing? And I guess that's basically what he's done. So he's embraced this limited rail line from Mersad to Bakersfield high speed rail from Brazil, the Bakersfield, wow. We don't even have the money for that. You know, that's questionable. He also announced a new chairman for the rail authority. Let him DACA. And a plan to post post rail spending publicly online, which is a step to hold the administration more accountable for the cost overruns something Brown, refused to do something that, you know, even for this little mini version of high speed rail. We gotta have Hilo we need transparency big time. And we have not had that at all. Water. Differentially differentiated himself on water for governor Brown. I would say, yes. He wants to scale back. The controversy will plan to carve out the massive tunnels through the Sacramento. San Joaquin delta to move the water to southern California. Instead, he says he wants to build one tunnel. For what it's worth. But. Yeah, I mean, that's that's a different plan than what. Jerry Brown wanted. And he'll probably not even do that. But that's the plan at the moment to build one Tuttle. You know, the idea was quickly embraced by the speaker of the assembly who says he's been skeptical of the two twenty th the two Tuttle the two title thing since governor Brown came up with it. There were a lot of people who didn't like it even on the democratic team. And. Possibly another area where he could be called out. It's being different from governor Brown would be education. Possibly when it comes to keeping track of how students are performing in California Public schools, loosen Brown. They have very very different views. Browde has repeatedly rejected the idea of developing a database to track student performance over time. Saying that he disagreed with the focus on test scores and feared that data would be abuse prejudice Newsome is embracing sort of a long-term student database as a way to measure which programs advanced student learning. I don't know what to think of either of these to be honest with you. I mean, he used the speech to announce his his pick of the to lead the state board of education for what it's worth. She's literally Hammond is a former Stanford professor, she's an expert in teaching and training, and she's chaired the commission on teaching credentialing for the last eight years. Are we gonna see proven in the public school? You know outcomes. Are we going to see any improvement in public school scores? If we get the transparency that he's asking for maybe. This is Jerry Brown was very good at he didn't want transparency with public school records. He didn't want transparency with high speed rail. He wasn't a very transparent guy. So maybe that's a difference. Finally is there a difference between Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom in housing and homelessness. That's a big problem. It's very costly problem. It was never a top priority for Brown. Even as he left office. He said he didn't think there was much. The state could do to make homes more affordable Newsome says he wants to change that by holding cities accountable for building affordable housing. That's a tough thing to do. He's already suited city. It was wasn't Huntington beach. Yeah. For not building enough enough, affordable homes. How can he do that? He says he will sue more cities for not building enough affordable homes.

I think he's going to have a problem with that one. I think it's. Zealand constitutional. I don't know.

"Me tell you something we're doing next week. Then I'm going to get to the phones. Here we got Chris Chris and Adam and the number of people standing by. We're going to stay with his robocaller thing in this pending legislation for about another fifteen minutes, max, get your calls in here to vent like I've been doing and hopefully this legislation which I'll go through again, very quickly doesn't do a lot. But it's a start in cleaning some of this crap up next week. I'm going to beat the farm show Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and Tuesday. I believe it is is going to be the state of the state address for our new governor Gavin Newsom. And he has been governor all that long. So there's not much he can really talk about the state of the state. However, we're going to carry it. We're going to carry the state of the state, and it'll be at eleven o'clock. That's the scheduled time Tuesday morning. So that could be the very first thing that you'll be hearing from the farm show. There's my broadcast will emanate from there. But it could be Gavin Newsom talking about the state of the state one of the reasons I was passionate about wanting to carry this because I see some of you now with your sour faces going. Why why I want to hear what he is planning for California that will probably in might some will probably and some stuff might differ, greatly from what governor Brown's agenda used to be the future of California's what I'm really interested in and a making a bet he's not going to say one word about high speed rail. I don't think it'll be a part of the speech at all he won't acknowledge it. Because he doesn't like it. He said so on this program a year and a half ago. He changed his tune to get reelected to get elected. But now that he's the governor. He's going to do away with it. I guarantee he will. I I know this. I got that big feeling, and there are others a lot closer to the governor. That I am there said, Yup. So he won't even acknowledge it. He won't even mention it. And that's kinda why one of the main reasons I really wanted to carry this in Blake who was the program director makes the decisions was in agreement and you'll hear it Tuesday came jail. Right. Chris. Thank you for waiting talk. To me about robocalls. Brother, you're on Cam. Jay. Hey, come on. Let's go. Yeah. The lower calls if you're. You're never other people. What do you mean?

Bob, I'm doing phone calls from you aren't getting phone calls for you. Still taking your number and yearly and also. That is weird. I've heard something similar to this before. But being the most non technically brained person on the planet that kind of stuff is really hard for me to wrap my head around. Chris. Thank you. I'm sure if they're in an I have no reason to doubt you. I'm sure if there's any. Reality. What you're saying is somebody will be able to shed a little bit more light on it. And I'd be more than curious about this. When we go from Christie, Chris thanks for holding on. It's all yours. Hi. Hi. Good happening. Right. Love your show. Thank you. I used to get.

Governor Newsom that sounds weird. That's the first time that come out of my mouth, governor Newsom as a new state budget plan his first totals one hundred and forty four billion in general fund spending. This is a four percent increase over Jerry Brown's last budget. The you may not liked governor Brown. In terms of his policies or politics, or whatever he said, he was a spendthrift Allen. Yes, it Wor. Yeah. This is going to be a a very rude awakening because Gavin Newsom is going to spend all kinds of eighty six percent of the new spending is just for one time investments. Let's see thirteen point six billion to boost reserves pay down debt and pension liabilities. Seems like any more than that for the pension liabilities? Let's see one point three billion for housing development two billion for early childhood, education and care. The total budget. They say is up to two hundred nine billion when you include bonds and special funds. This is just the Oprah Tampa wall. This is just the opening of the debate. Because. Every june. I wanted I mean the last couple of years we've done this without you know, going into that dangerous time when the legislature couldn't agree on a budget. But there was a point. I want to say for a good ten twelve years where we'd get to the end of June, and there'd be no budget, and it would take forever for the governor and the legislature to come together and finally come up with a plan. So anyway, it's in there. This is the governor's version of what he thinks the state should spend Joshua tree. National park will avoid a temporary closure that was set for today. And we'll reopen areas of the park that were closed because of the partial government shutdown. They used recreation fees to clean up trash and overflowing toilets. That's great words. Put together. Isn't it overflowing toilets? Great to think about a good word picture. It's going to reopen campgrounds for overnight. Stay by the way. I want to say bless these volunteers who have been working to try to keep the park clean during the during the shutdown. Yeah.

"Weather. We've been having but springs not all that far down the road. Right. Let's just hang in there. And I think we need this this water and snow desperately. So I'm happy to have it so much going on across the country today, and of course, right here in the state of California is the fortieth governor of the state takes office. Interesting interesting character to fill that position. Now, a man who has been in politics his entire life who's who's deeply immersed in the political system, obviously a very attractive candidate ever attractive family. Yeah. Yeah. I I think safe to say that Gavin Newsom the governor of the state of California. Now does have some. Some personal strengths and personality that that comes through and probably will serve his purposes. Well, and to some extent there is there's good news in the state of California because financially in the short term, the state's got a pretty good bankroll of cash on hand rather impressive amount of money in terms of cash assets that have been a mass and built over time to the credit of his predecessor governor Brown. But there are some other dirty little secrets in terms of enormous, unfunded liabilities. And burdens the state of California has some of which governor Brown actually spoke rather candidly about in recent days and weeks in terms of the concerns that these unfunded liabilities by way of the two gigantic pension systems in the state being just woefully underfunded. And no, no grasp of reality. In terms of what the true cost may be at any given time and the the nature of criteria us for the purpose of investing your money taxpayers money to keep the the pension system afloat. Many people are quick to say as the biggest pension system in the world is going to be fine. No matter what I I don't buy that for a moment. I think this the CalPERS and Cal stirs are are very fragile extremely fragile the the growth on the investments has been over reported and the the. The again the emotional component of decision making to to keep the systems of float. I think has compromised the ability to make some very good sound decisions. In terms of where the money is spent there's changes. Now, there's new board members starting with CalPERS this week, and that might bring about some some hope but other areas in the state of California, which I think we've we've seen some setbacks, and it's interesting because if you look at Edmund g Brown junior the the immediate past governor of the state of California now look back at the the various iterations of his governorship going back to the very young man with Linda Ronstadt on his on his arm in the nineteen seventies versus the the octogenarian of today. I guess he's an octogenarian does he names eighties or not dangerously close? If not a vastly different appearing character. Of course. But I think the trademark and his legacy which he doesn't want to accept but his legacy is going to be one in which he I will give him credit. I think he was Thais tight fissure with taxpayers money doesn't believe in spending a lot of. But I do think he had some some sincere desire to to get the the pension system under some level of control. I it hasn't happened. But he did manage to build a rather significant cash reserve. And in fact, I'd venture to say I think with some certainty some confidence that the state of California. Likely has more cash on hand than any government anywhere. And that includes the US federal government. So give them some do for that. But if you're sitting on a mound of cash and your debts far exceed what you could ever hope to pay. You're not wealthy and you're not in an enviable financial position. And that's where the state of California arrests today. So mixed news. I think overall in terms of California's economic health, but then you look at a couple of things in terms of areas where I think reality just did not come into play during his time. One of which is environmental the the failure on the part of the state of California to come to terms with some very real substantive legitimate plans to deal with the long term health of the environment and the state, I think was a swing and a mess, and the the lack of of wildland forest management that I think has to be part of the underlying. Contributing factors for the the the explosive, and I I don't use that as a pun. But there there's an explosive component literally and figuratively associated with the fire cycles. We've had of light. That's I if you're if you're an environmentalist you've got to look at that. And you've got to look at how that was managed and how it was a threat to the wild lands had been mitigated, and frankly, just didn't happen. And of course, the other one for which I have enormous passion. And I think we all should is the Justice system that criminal Justice system in this state, and it has been I think set back on its heels just to to an extraordinary degree. I think it's historical. And ultimately as things come into, Hugh. We'll see more and more of the the bad judgment. That has been in play. With regard to the management of California's Justice system corrections, the entirety of of the Justice system. But the the historical catch on that to keep from actually be able to declare it as historical. It goes back to his first generations governor, I think about it. This is a governor who had for the first last and only time in the history of the state of California that's far had not one not two. But three supreme court justices to include the chief his appointed chief Justice rose bird all recalled by the voters. You had a revolving door system of Justice that was adding to crime and violence and a predictable cycle of recurrent crime and recidivism and so much. So that eventually it was the electorate of the state of California that took that on and passed a couple of very aggressive measures to to bring things under control with a high degree of success. That's all but gone now, it's been eviscerated. In fact, just last week, the California Supreme Court rejected three more of governor Brown's recommendations to commute sentences of longtime prison inmates who he had believed were reformed while behind bars, including a Sacramento man who beat a man to death in nineteen Ninety-seven the court in recent weeks now has denied ten of governor Brown's clemency actions for the first time. It has exercised that power in a half century, very interesting series of events here. And but even with that the the changes in the Justice system are profound. The the rejections as I say marked the first time that the court has actually blocked a governor's clemency request and at least a half century fifty years. That's according to the state's judicial council the court reviews clemency actions for inmates who have been convicted of more than a one felony last week just hours before the expected release of his annual Christmas Eve Clements he acts actually two weeks back. The court announced it rejected Brown's attempt to commute the sentence of Kenny Lee who robbed and murdered a cabdriver back in nineteen Ninety-two Lee was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole Lee now in his forties has been in prison for more than nineteen years where he has his improved as behavior and pursued an education, according to court documents. But here's the deal the person's behavior in an institution where they're told what to do went to do it, and they're closely monitored they have no latitude, no liberty their model behavior. There is not likely to match their model behavior, the nature equality of their behavior outside these rejections unto themselves are extraordinarily unusual. That's not just my opinion. That's according to a colored lawyer David editor of our I'm sorry, editor of the Horvitz and lovey law firm there particularly noteworthy in light of a March order in which the justices established a very deferential standard of review, according to adenjer, the court has the power to reject clemency requests in cases of an abuse of power. According to this order, the court has hadn't released a public explanation of why it decided to block Brown's clemency attempts give the supreme court's March order it is reasonable to infer. From the denials that the supreme court directed and impending abuse of power, and I think that's a very sound conclusion to reach so late week ago. The court rejected clemency requests for three men convicted in fatal shootings one win who killed one person in one thousand nine hundred four Joe Hernandez who killed two people in nineteen Ninety-three at Howard Ford who killed one person in one thousand nine hundred eighty last month, actually, November the court rejected Brown sentence commutations for Richard barn field who stabbed and beat another inmate in nineteen ninety nine while serving time for robbery and gun crimes. And John Johnson who killed another driver in the nineteen ninety nineteen Eighty-nine car accident while fleeing a robbery. In December, the court blocked Brown's clemency director for Borey a Thirty-seven-year-old Cambodian refugee who killed a woman when he was fourteen years of age he was one of several people at risk of deportation to whom Brown granted clemency. Brown has granted pardons and commutations for more people than any of his eight most recent predecessors. They are part of his larger efforts to reduce the state's prison population, which has balloon says he signed a tough sentencing law in his first stint as governor that sent the set minimum sentences for inmates. So documents filed by Brown's attorneys described the inmates as reformed an aging men Ford, for instance, is seventy four years of age he shot him to death after a dice game in one thousand nine hundred according to court documents, he hopes to spend his remaining years with his wife and grandchildren attorney from Brown's Legal Affairs office wrote. Okay. Couple of things come to mind. First of all, I don't really care what he wants to spend his golden years. He he's he's forfeited that when he engaged in Troas acts of violence as they all have. And so what does it do to the system to have a loss not only of the severity of punishment of the of the certainty of punishment? So what does that do what will governor Brown's legacy be on criminal Justice? And the the what scares me what troubles me is that the rest of the nation is not learning lessons from our mistakes in California. We are seeing crime violent crime uptick for the first time in decades. And it's because of this. There's not a doubt in my mind that this is the driving explanation for that. And in the federal system. We're seeing the exact same thing that desire to call do something called criminal Justice reform. I'm all for a pellet opportunities. I'm all for giving the court the latitude to consider aggravating and mitigating factors when they sentence inmates based upon their criminal behavior and the totality of circumstances. But what have we done in the state, and what will governor Brown's legacy? Be. And as it relates to that legacy and the the attrition now that office, I think looking back governor Brown applied. I'll give him as do. I think he applied an element of fiscal constraint. That is good. But when it comes to his destruction of the Justice system in the state. I I don't like it. I think we're stuck with it, and regrettably, I do not see any reason to believe there's a likelihood of any substantive or positive change coming out of the new administration. You got thoughts nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty eight hundred eight.

Governor Brown calling on building on rock not sand. And now Newsom saying we will build a home on that. And it's almost like of now that the budget is in better shape that Democrats including you and the governor the new governor feel that it's important to make those investments perhaps at a faster pace than than governor Brown did. Yeah. I mean, I cut that symbolism as well. I think if you look at if we could go back and talk about early childhood education, for example, that's looking at a program that Oklahoma state that has very different political values. Various political California is is far ahead of California. So I think we want to think about programs that we need to institute. That's a good place to start one more.

And let me say good morning to democratic strategist and founder of close the gap California, Mary who's who's here in studio. Very good morning. Michael good morning. A Republican strategist, Sean Walsh of Wilson, Walsh consulting. Good morning. Sean. Thank you. Glad to have all of you with us this morning, and Sean let me begin with you, actually, I'm sorry, Scott. Let me begin with you. Then we'll go to marry and Sean let me let's just begin by kind of laying out the lay of the land here, it would appear at this point that Gavin Newsom is going into this with a whole new set of priorities with different style of governing and with a pretty full coffers to put it mildly. But also a lot of campaign promises. He is. And of course, I think you'd rather come into office with a lot of money in the Bank. I mean, Jerry Brown inherited at twenty seven billion dollar deficit and he's leaving fourteen billion dollars in the rainy day fund. And you know, a lot of extra money in the budget as well. So he does have a big vision. And be goals. He talked about that during the campaign. He's already released a bits of his budget, which show a two billion dollar investment in childhood education. Childcare he wants to expand free community college to a second year. Now, of course, as you point out all those things are expensive. We haven't seen the price tags yet. Just the the the the description of the policies, and of course, the legislature will have a lot to do with this. And the economy will have a lot to do that as well. We've seen some real turbulence on Wall Street and in some of the markets around the world. And so that has to be a a cautionary note for the new governor. And I think he's also going to be very mindful. Gavin Newsom be of not blowing it of not just spending the money. Developing a reputation for not being able to manage a budget. Well, he does have a huge majorities of Democrats in the legislature. You can be sure as I mentioned, Sean Walsh, she'll be happy to tell you that the Democrats have a big appetite for spending, and they're going to have their own priorities. Some of which will overlap with the new governor. But this will be a new set of priorities. It'll be interesting to see what he says today and his inaugural speech, and what he says in the coming days and weeks and months about things like high speed rail and the twin tunnels in the delta which were priorities for Jerry Brown, but they may not be forever Newsom. Well, I wanna talk about his priorities and talk about them with you. But here he is talking about the challenges. Many state residents face as they seek the California dream. But let's be honest. There's no doubt about this. The dream is still too distant for too many. We're a land of plenty. But we are far from perfect too. Many Californians are being priced out of housing healthcare and higher education. Too. Many workers are feeling the ever tightening squeeze of automation and wage stagnation. Too. Many children are growing up in poverty and starting school from behind in many ways in many places, we are simultaneously the richest and the poorest state kind of lays it out there, Scott. And I think many of the promises that have been made are sort of implicit in. What we just heard in fact, said ironclad single payer to the nurses union. He did. But you know, he has also been a little more, shall we say realistic about that in recent months, he would like to make progress on that. But I think I think the nurse. Understand too that there isn't going to be single payer healthcare in California this year, or maybe even next year or the year after that. But they want to see some progress. And I think Newsome is committed to at least giving it a shot. What I think you're gonna see really that'll be the biggest difference between the outgoing Brown administration. And the Newsome administration is the focus on children. He has of course, for young children himself that in and of itself is a big optics different difference from Jerry Brown who does not have any kids. And we've seen those kids front and center over the weekend at various events that the governor elect his held that assures me Scott, the news some family is moving to Sacramento. They are they think they struggled with that. Because they didn't want to uproot the kids from school in Marin, but they're going to be moving into the mansion Dan downtown Sacramento, I was talking to Gavin Newsom an hour or so ago, and he said he'd only been in their once it's a little odd to be moving into a house that you barely know. But that's what they're going to be doing. I think even later today. Let me just ask a couple of things. Might distinguish him from his predecessor Jerry Brown. One thing that seems to be in the offing aside from the concern about childhood education and about community colleges in healthcare, and so forth is also an environmental concern because Jerry Brown was okay with fracking was okay. To a great extent with oil drilling. Not so clear that Gavin Newsom is going to follow suit is it. Well, I think yeah. There's going to be certainly pressure on him from the so-called keep it in the ground lobby. They don't wanna see any oil extracted from California nothing. Jerry Brown has taken a more, shall we say realistic perspective on that saying that look if we don't take it out of the ground people are still going to drive their cars. There's still going to be a demand for oil. It will just be shipped in from other states, and that has its own environmental risks as well. So I think you may see this new governor back away from fracking a little bit. Maybe put more regulations on it or even Bannet as they've done in some states. But I'm not sure that's going to be necessarily a top priority. And, you know, the oil industry for all of its problems, and there are many, environmentally speaking. It does provide a lot of jobs and a lot of revenue for counties, like, you know, Kern county, even LA county, some of those counties that you know, are really big and oil production and California's the second biggest oil producing state in the country. We can expect him to continue to be head of the resistance as the New Yorker put it well. Well, certainly in speech today, we've seen excerpts of it. He is going to lay out a strong contrast between California, which is open to immigrants open to new ideas embracing diversity. He has found a pretty good foil in Donald Trump who is of course, extremely unpopular in California. But he's going to have to do more than that. And as Jerry Brown quickly figured out, you need the federal government at times, especially in a state like California, which is prone to disaster or another. And so I would imagine he'll pick his battles. You know, you do have to pick up the phone sometimes and ask for an emergency declaration or emergency funding from the White House. So you don't want to you know, you don't want to burn that bridge. I should say that his ex wife, Kimberly Guilfoil is also dating Donald Trump junior. So that might be a back channel into the Oval Office. Scott Shafer, again, a senior editor California government and politics desk, and Mary his is democrat strategist and founder of close the gap California. And I think it's gonna work out between this governor and the legislature. There was a kind of aloofness that was often associated with Gavin Newsom. Not quite the Schmoozer. That people think Jerry Broncos. I think this governor will engage while earlier in the policy-making then governor Brown did who tended to lay back way to see what was formulated and then make his decisions, and then governor some has signalled with the more family friendly agenda, which is very much aligned with the influx of new women into the legislature that there is a path forward with the Democrats to make quick solid concrete advancements, which every governor wants to do early. And which this legislature will also want to do. Now, you see governor Brown is working particularly hard, for example, on ameliorating, the homelessness problem, although often that's in the realm more of city and county government than it is of state government. But you think he's really going to push hard as he did it with mayor. I think the the top priorities for governor news. Some will be in the realm Scott said if somewhat focused on children, I think the health health care initiatives will begin first with children early. Childhood education is clear they've made that central prior to leave is a bolder move six months is the goal. So I do think that those are initiatives that he will engage in quickly. Where's the money for six months? We do have a reserve. I think he's being very careful about how he allocates that. So it's unclear where he'll move money. And I also think as Scott said it will take a longer time to achieve these things. But some of them we can begin. Now, let me call on here. And that's you Peter from Berkeley China's. Hey, how's it going? Thank you for asking. Okay. How are you? I'm good. So I was just listening. Thanks. I love you guys. Do I really appreciate having going on in the local radio. I guess I just wanted to say when you know, when you when people like me, I'm like kinda left left, meaning democrat. We see Gavin Newsom. Look the part. He definitely says all the right things. But you know, I've been in Berkeley for twenty five years, and I've I've watched the tech shadow looms further and further, and I've watched, you know, the homeless situation go kind of out of control, and my concern is that while you might seem on the circuit like the right kind of politician for California. It's just it's really easy to be the anti Trump. But still kind of stay in the center and keep being the grease the wheels grief in I know that Gavin Newsom really connected. I know the billionaire class helps in in his policy and politics. So we're just kind of concerned that it's going to be a lot more of the same. And you know, things moving at a snail's pace for renewables and things that. Are really important like single payer, and you know, the environment expressing some concerns and apprehensions Mary who's director your response to his concerns. Yeah. I think one of the things that it will be really interesting to watch is the freedom that this governor. Now has he's been a Lieutenant governor for eight years he had a contentious run as mayor in San Francisco wasn't LA's with the left the agenda that we see so far would suggest that he is interested in making moves quickly. I think he's very mindful that trends and ideas move west coast to east, and there's a great premium both politically, but also in terms of policy implementation on actually trying things I don't think it will be a laboratory, but we're going to see boulder experiments. A return in some ways to pilot projects. Using multiple departments to attack a problem, so homelessness, for example, one of the initiatives, I expect to see early on in that healthcare movement is mental health. How will that take a chunk out of our homeless problem? And also find funding you ask about finding Michael I think we're gonna see various departments contribute to bigger solutions for problems that are big. And then the beginning a governor gets a little leeway to be bolder. So I think you'll see that..

"Governor Brown to speak a little about what it was like to reach across the aisle, and the current political climate this is what he had to say.
