A professor from UC Berkeley who served under the previous administration is not impressive. And thanks to DeSaulnier and Sacramento Leadership in general we have seen the destruction of small businesses and an increase upon reliance on Big Government. Long term our children will pay the price. Of course be safe but we can do that while reopening our economy.
