John Brodbeck: Time for Newsom to go

The state is facing an increase in COVID-19 cases and more precautions are being required by local and state authorities. Gov. Gavin Newsom should have seen this coming.

It didn’t take a genius to know the migration of COVID-19 infected immigrants into our cities would cause a major increase in COVID-19 cases. He has encouraged immigrants to migrate to California and had to know many of these immigrants were carrying the coronavirus.
