Senator Melendez Responds to Governor Newsom's Regional Shutdowns

Today, California State Senator Melissa Melendez (R- Lake Elsinore) responded to Governor Gavin Newsom’s regional shutdown order:

“Governor Newsom clearly doesn’t understand that Californians are tired of being locked in their homes. He has ignored the calls from parents with children falling behind socially and academically while his own children attend in-person private school.. He is ignoring the cries from small business owners struggling to keep their dreams alive, desperately trying to avoid the over 19,000 businesses that have permanently closed. The insanity of another lockdown and expecting a different result is madness. To add insult to tremendous injury, the Governor and too many democrat elected officials don’t even follow their own mandates. Californians damn well deserve better”
