If you like what you see when you go to San Francisco, then vote against the recall.

If you liked the small businesses getting obliterated during the lockdowns, then vote against the recalls.

If you thought it was a good idea that Californians were barred from going to beach last year, then vote against the recall.

If you think it’s good for there to be two sets of mask rules, one for the general public and another one for elites eating at the French Laundry, then vote against the recall.

If you like kids getting educated via Zoom, then vote against the recall.

I say vote NO. And I also urge voters to continue to wear their "I Voted" stickers from now through September 4 in order to encourage others to vote. Apathy will put California in jeopardy. We vote again in 2022, so it's a ridiculous exercise anyway!
