Governor delivers ‘State of the State’ address, hopeful for a brighter future
–As California passes a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Gavin Newsom this week delivered his third State of the State address to the State Legislature and the people of California in a virtual presentation from Dodger Stadium – one of the nation’s largest community vaccination sites.
The governor highlighted the state’s continued progress in battling the pandemic, reflected on the Californians who have been lost to COVID-19, and recognized everyday Californians who have risen to meet the challenges of this unprecedented time – including the health workers now vaccinating some of the most vulnerable Californians at the stadium.
The governor also highlighted the urgent relief the state is providing to the hardest hit Californians and small businesses, and how the state is working to accelerate the reopening of schools across California. Governor Newsom talked about the work ahead to continue to safely reopen and ensure the state emerges from the pandemic in an equitable, broad-based recovery.
