Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Hewitt is planning to run for Governor during California’s recall election in 2021.
There is no firm date yet for that recall election.
On Friday night April 30th 2021, Hewitt told a crowd of supporters he’s running as a Libertarian amid the push to recall Governor Gavin Newsom.
Hewitt says Riverside County has been shortchanged by the state, and he’s running to fix that.
He cites the county not getting a fair share of state funding, and not getting an adequate supply of the coronavirus vaccine when there was a low supply of doses a few months ago. Hewitt says his top priorities will be water, housing, and education.
