More than 2 million people of California signed a recall petition. For some California tax payers to be able to have a voice for how their tax money is spent is a democratic right.

I haven’t heard anyone complain about the billions of dollars of the EDD fraud that will cost us tax payers. The $5.4 billion spent on the bullet train and Newson inviting the homeless to California because we owe these people a chance for a new life.

Gas prices are the highest in California and not to mention all the social programs that will cost taxpayers billions. Let’s get serious and start talking about the issues facing this state.

Excellent points in your letter. Why hasn’t our State government resolved any of California's crises like the worst in the country education, black outs, fires, homelessness and lack of water and housing. How is it that Democrats who have ruled the state for decades have not solved any of these? Answer - the political corruption of our one party government that's never held accountable by Democrat voters.

Thank you Ms. Medrano, for just a few of the inconvenient facts that many complaining about the cost of the recall always like to forget. Along with conveniently forgetting to account for CA’s unfunded liabilities when talking about our supposed budget surplus.
