9:04 pm
we are california. >>governor gavin newsome giving his 3rd state of the state tonight reflecting on the state's response to the pandemic he also defended some of his decision-making as this recall effort against him looms kron four's capitol bureau reporter ashley zavala explains. >>i know our progress as it always felt fast enough and look we we make mistakes i have made mistakes in his shortest state of the state is governor gavin newsome defended his administration's decision making and reflected on the state's response to the deadly pandemic he recapped the state's effort to provide financial relief to struggling businesses and workers a push to reopen schools and the effort to distribute vaccines. >>which is now provided 11 million shots to people across california as the pandemic expose the inequalities across the state he promised to make california more equitable moving forward i remain determined in the address the governor for the
9:05 pm
first time all but mention the recall effort against him by name we're not going to change course just because of a few naysayers and in doomsday years. >>so the california critics out there promoting partisan political power grabs with outdated prejudices and. >>checked everything that makes california truly great. we say this. we will not be distracted from getting shots in arms in our economy booming again some republican lawmakers criticized the governor for looking back and not ahead including senate republican leader scott will connect california under governor newsom is a state of disrepair and i believe that we can do better. >>and now to a little more perspective on the governor speech and what it's going to mean for his administration moving forward joining us now via zoom or political analyst michael yaki michael good to see you thanks for being with us live tonight. >>i know you're a democrat in your opinion did the governor do anything tonight too help or hurt himself.
9:06 pm
>>i think what the governor did today was sort of set the stage for what he hopes will be the reality of california by the time this recall election comes around and that is kids back in schools. the state pretty much open and everyone vaccinated now that's a tall order. he started he did it with the very up the challenge. quite frankly is a little fast for a lot of people but i think that you know he was basically saying that this is how ending a high bar, this is how it's going to be this is what we're going to be doing. this is how the state it's a reality in california will in this coming year and by implication by the time this recall election rolls around probably a or early fall. >>michael maybe it's just me, but it sounded a little less like a state of the union or state of the state address and more like a campaign stop. >>what was interesting this year he made a lot of noise about the fact is only going
9:07 pm
to be 30 minutes long. but it felt like a 45 minute speech crammed into 30 minutes there was really no breathtaking there's sort of no. billy cancer to pause and the end really think about what it what what has happened in the last year. there's a lot that there's a lot has happened in the golden state some good some bad all of it just not normal. a lot quite quite frankly plain awful, but the question is how are we going to be moving to the next step and i think he was trying to talk about that and say this is what it's going to be like india in some ways it was a campaign speech because again the context of this was the fall election now he really didn't he had that one brief little mention about the partisans about the partisan power grab those relief and service to the baseball he was really trying to speak more to the average california about where we're going to be going in. again the verdict is going to be is going to with the voters in about 6 months. and what is the bottom line there
9:08 pm
michael it if kids are in school if everyone has had the. >>chance to be vaccinated is he safe or to see still have reason to work. well i think that if everyone is vaccinated if we're pretty much back to normal kids are in school. >>i think as to the pandemic you say that this is you know very interesting times and anything else could happen there could be more wildfires there could be other things like that that come up. recall elections are a moment or moment, i'm in there about a moment in time. so whatever is going to be happening on that day is going to determine whether or not people are going to decide well. you know, let's just go for a change in what the hack or if they can the say no no no. let's stay the course, let's keep going the way we're going. >>what was refreshing is is the lack of hubris and admitted to making some mistakes. is the really smart in appealing to you know the public to show you know that
9:09 pm
your humble you're willing to learn. >>well, i mean in all he had to say that i mean that the french laundry incident hasn't gone away, it's going to be used again and again whatever campaign and the campaign will be against him for the recall so he he was he had to do that. but again this speech was really about setting this setting the stage for what he believes california will be like. in this coming year through the through the summer into the fall- if you meet expect patients this can be very hard for any recalled succeed because. that's record like i said recalls. about a moment in time and if the moment is has been met people are going to say let's move on and again remember this is a very different situation then. 20 years ago, this is but disparity between democratic republican registration is much larger effect this is going to be a again a male an election like november 2020 was is going to be heavily in his favor. so there's a lot of
9:10 pm
reasons for him to be confident. but then again this california you just never now. you think people watching at home michael if they watched at home. >>care about things like demeanor and mannerisms you alluded to this it seemed like he was speaking quickly we're used to these wonki press conferences where use all kinds of words meeting the moment and the like, but you know he was smiling, it seems like the whole time tonight and what what did you make of his performance. okay i ice to teach public. speaking just do public speaking. >>i know this is something where i said i think was a 45 minute speech crammed in the 30 minutes of mr. a little bit too fast there's a limit to force. the message was all there. the the themes roll their execution was just a little off but then again. this is about again setting the table setting the stage getting enough messages out there to to be used over and over again in the coming months to that to that extent it succeeded to the average viewer watching it was it was
9:11 pm
i think a little a little rushed. >>armchair you thank you michael yaki for our political analyst for joining us interesting perspectives, thanks michael come. well more good news in the bay area's fight against covid tonight, 3 more counties have moved down into a less restrictive. >>tear down into the red tier now we're talking about alan media and solano counties which means more businesses can open then the ones already open can expand their capacity cuts costs in sonoma counties are the only ones in the region that remain in the purple tier. as a reminder, here's what is allowed when a county moves from the purple to the red tier restaurants can open indoors at 25% capacity. >>retail stores and shopping malls can move from 25% capacity to 50% capacity. museums and zoos and aquariums, those can open indoors at 25% capacity. movie

9:16 pm

9:17 pm
conflict of interest it would mean that a private insurance company would be collecting all protected health information and personal information. >>for all residents who are vaccinated. a significant problem with confidentiality and trust because. >>many of our. >>residents said do not. government or others to treat their information with care and security while several county governments oppose the blue shield take over. >>the company points out that a growing number of health care providers hospitals and clinics are in favor along with governor newsome is san jose rob fladeboe kron 4 news there are a lot of people looking to get vaccinated they've been sitting on the california website just refreshing the page for updates click click click so to make it a bit easier for folks to bay area tech startup a one-stop shop to find out where and when they are
