We Did Alright For A Couple Of Goofballs
We Did Alright For A Couple Of Goofballs – Since 1911, during the “Progressive Era,” California has allowed voters to remove elected officials and judges from the state (Article II, Sections 13-19) through recall elections. There have been 55 previous attempts to impeach a sitting governor, and only one of them was successful: Gray Davis in 2003. It appears that enough signatures have been submitted to impeach Governor Gavin Newsom, and it is expected that a special election will be called. Soon repeal advocate Tom Del Beccaro talks about the effort to impeach Gov. Newsom David Carrillo at the California Constitution Center in Berkeley against repeal and Steven Hayward opposes repeal from a conservative perspective against withdrawals as a matter of course. . in principle

Brad Barber: I’m Brad Barber, director of the School of Public Policy Program at the University of California, Berkeley. I would also like to thank our co-sponsors, the California Constitution Center at Berkeley and the Citrin Center for Public Policy Research in Berkeley. Since 1911, during the first Progressive Era, California was one of nineteen states that allowed votes to remove elected officials and state judges. But in those one hundred and twenty years there have been fifty-five previous attempts to recall, and only one of them was successful: Governor Gray Davis in 2003. But now it seems that enough valid signatures have been submitted that we have an election in the fall . To discuss that phenomenon and analyze the politics and policy behind it, we are pleased to have three experts: Tom Del Beccaro, lawyer, author, speaker, former chairman of the California Republican Party, candidate for United States Senate and current purpose. that discussion, the chairman of recall California and the chairman of Rescue California, a group that was instrumental in raising money and gathering signatures for Gavin Newsom’s recall, is important. After Tom, David Carrillo, who is the director of the California Constitution Center, will speak not as a representative or spokesman for the governor, but as an expert on the constitution and will address the question of whether the facts of Newsom’s situation are applicable. in purpose. and behind retreat. He will also discuss other aspects of the California constitution and withdrawal. Finally, we are pleased to have Steven F. Hayward, co-author, political commentator, policy scholar at the Berkeley Institute for Governmental Studies, professor at Berkeley speak to us from a conservative position that opposes the initiatives. memories of the referendum and other legacies of the Progressive Era. So welcome, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you all for coming and I want to start now with Tom. If you could tell us a little bit about any part of your story that I missed, but how you got involved in this recovery effort and where you see things now.
Thomas Del Beccaro: Of course. I am a 1983 graduate of UC Berkeley with a B.S. in english So there you are. I participated in this particular Retreat: I participated in the 2003 Retreat, then I was the Contra Costa county president. Since then I served as chairman of the California Republican Party and we put an initiative on the ballot during my term and after becoming chairman I became a national broadcaster and last year I made over five hundred radio appearances and television around the world from the Middle. East to New York to San Francisco to Alaska. I did not support the initial efforts to recall Gavin Newsom. This may be the sixth time someone has tried to get signatures. I have not supported the previous efforts, but when this particular effort was started and when I saw Gavin Newsom’s response to Covid, I thought it was time to get rid of it and the reason behind it and, you know, move on. thinking they are very clear politicians, right? But this one has many legal grounds that we need to consider especially in light of the current arrangement. Gavin Newsom, when the response to Covid began, as you know, he changed – unilaterally changed – more than four hundred Californians. He has signed many no-bid contracts that are bad public policy to begin with and have legal problems. Even at the beginning when they first allocated money to respond, Newsom claimed to work with the assembly to distribute the funds, but he did not even do much. If you’ve googled that process, you’ll know that many Democrats resent it for doing things essentially unilaterally. As you know, at some point in the assembly he was suspended and Gavin Newsom is actually a man, a governor and I think he’s been beaten in the courts more than any other governor in the country on this and a bag – or just the Supreme Court . . So the legal aspect of it, as a practicing attorney for thirty-three years, worries me. Shouldn’t we have a governor who always tries to stay inside and build consensus on his initiatives and programs inside? Or should we let the chief executive push the envelope all the time and expect the courts and citizens to rule it? And of course, that last point is memory in a nutshell. Citizens here want the rule overturned. We shall soon hear what part of the story relates to the origin of this progressive movement in California. Of course this was a consequence even before that: the Progressive Movement did not begin in California. William Jennings Bryan felt this as he fought against the big trust interests of his time. And we have a progressive movement in this country that is primarily about empowering citizens to take on special interests that can rule the country if they are committed to the government. Remember the example of William Jenning Bryan, Rockefeller, Carnegie and others who came together, spent huge sums of money to prevent Bryan – William Jennings Bryan – from becoming president and the Progressive Movement was developed from that time
