Senator Grove slams governor’s speech

Senator Grove slams governor’s speechToday, Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement after Governor Newsom delivered his State of the State Address at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles:

“While I appreciate the governor’s optimism about the people of California, his speech was nothing short of an alternative reality on the state of our state. The truth is, under his one-man rule, Californians have suffered immensely, businesses have closed, families have fled, nursing home residents have died, church services were banned, and children continue to suffer.

“The governor failed to point out how his policies are taking nearly a million acres of the world’s richest farmland out of production, shuttering entire industries, and leaving workers without a way to put food on the table. Californians deserve better and I continue to call on the governor to adopt commonsense solutions that address these harsh realities.”
