Election Frauder "mayor" Willie Brown of San Francisco, who sits in office with 40% of the vote plus election fraud, and is known for being anti-tenant and anti-public power, showed up at a unity rally on July 19, 2003 for his equally reactionary friend, Gov. Gray Davis, who is best known for promoting the death penalty, prisons and private power, all good reasons to recall this worst governor in California history.

Perhaps the best recent article on Gray Davis' promotion of the prison-concentration camp-death penalty system, which is the primary reason we have no money for schools and social services, was written by Van Jones in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, 7/16/03, at: http://www.sfbg.com/37/42/x_oped.html
Some highlights include:
--Prison guard salaries will increase to $73,000 by 2006. It is long overdue that teachers start at $73,000 per year, as they must have a college degree to do their job, and their job is necessary to build a better world. We do not need any prisons or prison guards at all.
--$160 million will go to a new prison-concentration camp department office-totally unnecessary
--$220 million will go toward a death camp at San Quentin, of which Gray Davis is very proud. The death penalty should be abolished.
--Education programs for prisoners will be cut by $46.2 million
As of July 19, 2003, 1,658,302 signatures have been accounted for to recall Gray Davis. The courts have ruled in favor of the recall in various lawsuits filed to either delay the recall vote until March (that was not the stated reason but the effect) or to force the Democratic Secretary of State to obey the law and require the county election officials count the signatures as they come in.
When the recall makes the ballot, please do vote for the recall for the simple reason that anyone who supports prisons, the death penalty and private power should be recalled. Please do not vote for any Democrat or Republican to replace Gray Davis. If you find a suitable candidate who is for abolishing prisons and the death penalty and for taking over the private power grid to establish public power to deliver energy to all of California, vote for that candidate.
Do not allow yourself to be intimidated by the election-frauding Democrats or their twins, the election-frauding Republicans.
The cost of the recall is small compared to the cost of prisons, the death penalty and private power. So long as Gray Davis is on the wrong side on these issues, all the crumbs that he has tossed out do not negate the fact that it is his reactionary policies on these issues that is destroying the California economy.
